Despite the belief of its commercial origin, February 14 is a holiday of Christian origin that is celebrated annually or as a commemoration of the good works carried out by Saint Valentine of Rome, related to the universal concept of love and affection.
Despite the recognition of Valentine's Day by Rome as the founder and initiator of the holiday on February 14, this did not weaken the main legend on which the holiday is based: at the time when Christianity was prohibited by Claudius II, Saint Valentín, who thought that there was no need to put up barriers of love, was in charge of officiating the
secret ceremonies. Claudio II, upon learning of the marriage vows that the saint was making, ordered him to be captured and brought before him to excuse himself; Apparently, Claudio had no intention other than to rebuke him and banish him, but due to the influence of other high officials, he had Saint Valentine executed on February 14, 270.
Centuries later, Pope Gelasio I decided to sanctify Valentine and add the day of his death to the liturgical calendar, thus establishing a universal festival around love and the saint who personified it.
