Saint Valentine of Rome is the patron saint of love. His feast day is celebrated not only by Catholics but by many in the world on February 14th each year. Although it has become a more commercialized holiday, like St. Patrick's Day, St. Valentine's Day is one of the most widely celebrated feast days of the Catholic Church. Most people don't know that St. Valentine was beheaded for his faith. He died a martyr.
