*St. Valentine gained his reputation as a friend of lovers when he defied the Emperor’s edict forbidding soldiers to wed, and performed secret marriages in the temple. Single men were seen as more willing warriors, and Valentine was imprisoned because he acted on his faith that the power of love must prevail over the demands of war. Behind bars, he gave aid to other prisoners.
