So Who Was Saint Valentine?
Valentine's Feast Day
Information was long disputed about Saint Valentine(s), but his feast day was set for February 14 in the year 496 by Pope Gelasius I. Along several other saints, Valentine was listen in the category of all those "... whose names are justly reverenced among men, but whose acts are known only to God." Clearly, the Church could not reconcile the different stories of Valentine's life, but still knew enough to find him worthy of sainthood.
