Cute Catholic Saints: San Valentino

SAN VALENTINO, or Saint Valentine, was a martyr and the bishop of Terni, in Umbria.
In ancient iconography he's represented close to an axe and a tree stub, but the internet's got no explanation for it.

The feast happens in the same days as Roman Lupercalia, fecondity celebrations somehow connected to the wolf cults.

Valentino is considered to be the saint patron of LOVE, young lovers, happy marriages and EPILEPSY.
