Valentine’s Day Advantages & Disadvantages

valentine's day advantages

Valentine’s Day Advantages. Saint Valentine was a Catholic priest solemnizing marriages in secret, Christianity being still in its infancy and persecuted by the Roman Government. It happened in the 3rd Century under the Roman Emperor Claudius II (or so the legend goes). What is more important for us at the moment is the advantages of including (and celebrating) Valentine’s Day in the lineup of our culture in its romantic context.

Future Wife Needs Love and Understanding

Here are some tips on how to attract a mature-minded, middle-income, intelligent, godly, well-adjusted and potential future wife. But, firstly, may I stress that our approach differs with one’s level of maturity, experience, and godliness.

God Watches Like Father to His Son

The following poetical snippet was originally written in my Tumblr page. It is plain and no hidden meanings from the viewpoint of the universal Christian experience. Jesus Christ is giving the same faith-experience to His followers. With His indwelling Spirit in the heart, the believers in the US, in the Philippines, or in Japan (anywhere in the globe) have the same stories about how real is Jesus Christ to their lives. “As God Watches Like Father to His Son” is just the reflection on how Christ cares for His genuine followers, the born-of-God Christians.

Great Love for Ourselves Less Love for Our God

The real problem in this life is our great love for ourselves. As such, we tend to attribute all our laurels to no one but ourselves. God, in our natural experience, seems to be just another Grandpa in our trying times. We don’t see some big deal with Him. We don’t give God the honor and glory due Him as our Heavenly Father and Creator. Our mind and heart are all focused on ourselves, on our money, job, or our relationships. Even in our deathbed, we tend to call God only as an Emergency Assistant. We all have the great love for ourselves and less love for our God.

Today is Valentine’s Day, a feast of Saint Valentine to a few Christian denominations—the day we traditionally send flowers or love notes or a valentine’s card or a text message to our special loved one. The question is: Is it relevant today? Is it meaningful? Is it necessary?

Wikipedia says that “The first recorded association of Valentine’s Day with romantic love is in Parlement of Foules (1382) by Geoffrey Chaucer. Chaucer wrote: “For this was on seynt Volantynys day Whan euery bryd comyth there to chese his make. [‘For this was on Saint Valentine’s Day, when every bird cometh there to choose his mate.’]”

I like Chaucer’s description of Valentine’s Day: “to choose his mate.” Or, that Valentine’s Day is the special day for lovers or married people or for someone who’s in love (definitely not the kind of love you have for your sick grandfather, neither that so-called love for the same sex—but rather, for the opposite sex!). It is the day you and your sweetheart would want to have more fun together, more celebration to your relationship.
