Item Description...
In ancient Rome there lived a gentle and humble man named Valentine. He was a physician, but he was also a Christian priest whose life and freedom were in constant danger in a city of people who believed in so many gods, not just one. So Valentine tended to his patients in the daytime, but he prayed for them only at night.

One day a jailer from the emperor's prison appeared at Valentine's door with his small child, a girl who was blind. Knowing the difficulty of curing blindness, Valentine vowed to do his best, and over the weeks of treatment and prayer the three became fast friends. But even his friendship with the jailer could not save Valentine when the Roman soldier came to imprison him.

Here, accompanied by Robert Shabuda's dramatic mosaics evoking the time period in which the story takes place, is the story of a man whose goodness and faith brought about a miracle, and whose name lives on today in one of our most celebrated holidays.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Yay  Jan 27, 2008
Saint Valentine is my Confirmation Saint, and when I found this book I was just so happy. I remember being in second grade, twitching in my uniform as my teacher told us the story.
I had an obsession with Saints, and this story was just beautiful. The pictures and everything are superb.
It's one of my favorite children's Saint's books.
Perfectly retold for children  Apr 23, 2007
This is the perfect book to read your child. In it you read a story about Saint Valentine. It explains how he was a physician that lived in ancient Rome about two hundred years after Christ. That he was a very kind and giving man. He was a physician and a Christian priest at a time when they were persecuted.

His faith and dedication is told as he treats his patients during the day and prays for them all night. The incident the author tells of Saint Valentine ministering to the small blind child is what is purported in this book to be the beginning of the giving of flowers on his feast day.

This is a wonderfully told story.
Interesting and informative  Mar 27, 2007
This book was very interesting and when I read it to my class we all learned quite a bit.
Incredibly great!  Oct 6, 2006
I am six years old, in 2nd grade (homeschool) and I read this book today. It's about how Valentine was a doctor and how he cares about people. Children will love this book because of his kindness and how he cares about other people. The pictures look like beautiful little stones. Children will learn a lot from this book.

Wonderful book!  Jan 2, 2002
I wish I had a book like this for St. Nicholas, but I will look for one on St. Patrick too. This is a really interesting book.
