February 14 ST. VALENTINE Patron of Love, Young People and Happy Marriages. Dear brethren in Christ, HAPPY VALENTINE’S DAY! The entire world today celebrates Valentine’s day as a tribute to human love.

On Holy Purity. MOTHER, MOST CHASTE! PRAY FOR US! HATS OFF TO TIM TEBOW.


On Holy Purity. MOTHER, MOST CHASTE! PRAY FOR US! HATS OFF TO TIM TEBOW. WE NEED MORE CHRISTIAN MEN LIKE YOU.
