Saturday, February 14: Sung Latin Mass for the Feast of St. Valentine

St. Valentine receives a rosary from the Mother of God.
David Teniers III (1638-1685)
Saturday, February  14, 11:30 (A.M.)
 Sung Traditional Latin Mass
for the Feast of St. Valentine
Celebrant: Rev. Fr. Burt J. Boudoin
990 Saturn Blvd, San Diego, CA 92154

Although he is one of the most popular saints in the calendar, almost nothing certain is known about St. Valentine, except that he was a priest and a martyr during the times of the III century Roman emperor Claudius II.  The fact that he became the patron saint of affianced couple is a curious development. But, as a martyr for Christ, he was a messenger of true Love, to which every human love must conform, lest it regresses to a brutish passion. On St. Valentine's day, come to the Traditional Latin Mass, sung by the Brothers in Gregorian chant and with a guest polyphonic choir.
