February 14 celebrates Valentine’s Day.
Also known as The Feast of Saint Valentine or Saint Valentine’s Day, this holiday focuses on all things love related. It is impossible to walk into any supermarket, drug store or mall and not see hearts, cupids, chocolates and other reminders of this day for lovers.
The History of Valentine’s Day
Saint Valentinus was a Christian saint who was known for helping arrange secret marriages for people who were persecuted for their religious beliefs and subsequently not allowed to get married. He was jailed for his work and later died on February 14, 269 AD. He was martyred by the church and a feast day was established in his honor. As time progressed, the day became less about the man named Valentinus and more about the symbolism associated with him. While still recognized as a saint, Saint Valentine’s feast day is no longer listed on the General Roman Calendar.
During the Victorian Era, men and women began using Valentine’s Day as a day to announce their feelings for one another. Heart-shaped notes were passed between friends to the intended recipient. Men presented candies and flowers to the ones they admired and women reciprocated with poems and love letters. Couples have taken to getting engaged or married on Valentine’s Day as the ultimate expression of their love for each other.
Invoking Saint Valentine
People often wonder how they can harness the power of the saint of love. Valentine’s Day is the perfect time to focus your intentions on drawing the one you desire closer to you.
To bring back a lover who has left you, carve the first name of your lost love onto a Double Action Heart Multicolor 7 Day Prayer candle. Anoint the candle with Come to Me oil. Visualize and concentrate on your loved one coming back to you and light the candle. Repeat the following incantation as your candle burns.
“Bring back my love that I know,
With his return, our love shall grow.
Universe, bring him back to stay,
I’m sure he will come back someday.”
