Prayer to Saint Valentine

Happy Valentines day…..

 

We pray through the intercession of Saint Valentine for those we love; to keep them safe; protect the love we share for each other and that nothing will ever happen to distort that love. We ask this of Christ our Lord. Amen.

Saint Valentine,
true servant who shed his blood

in defence of the sacraments and faith in Jesus Christ,
intercede for us today, we pray.

Gain for us the strength to be steadfast like you
in witnessing to the true faith to the end of our days,
and help us never to lose hope in the Lord
who is always near us.

Intercede for those men and women who are preparing for marriage:
help them to know one another and the true meaning
of the sacramental bond they are preparing to enter.

Intercede for those who are joined together
in the sacrament of marriage,
that they may never give up when trials come their way
but may remain faithful to each other,
and to the Lord who blessed their union.

May your love for the Lord be an inspiration for
our love for each other, for the love between husband and wife,
and for the love and charity we extend to all whom we meet.
Amen.
