Ferial, comm of St Valentine, MARTYR

St. Francis of Assisi, the Seraphic Lover
A prayer for Students

St. Valentine:

This holy Roman priest assisted with other pious Christians a great number of martyrs. He was beheaded under Aurelian in 270 A.D.

(from the 1962 Roman Catholic Daily Missal)

Introit of Holy Mass today:

In virtute tua, Domine,

laetabitur justus:

et super salutare tuum exsultabit vehementer:

desiderium animae

ejus tribuisti ei.

Quoniam praevenisti eum in benedictionibus dulcedinis:

posuisti in capite ejus coronam de lapide pretioso.

Gloria Patri.

Psalm 20: 2-4

In Thy strength, O Lord, the just man shall joy:

and in Thy salvation he shall rejoice exceedingly:

Thou hast given him his heart's desire.

For Thou hast prevented him with blessings of sweetness:

Thou hast set on his head a crown of precious stones.

Gloria Patri.

From the Old Testament, a very beautiful verse:

Et ecce tempus tuum, tempus amantium ...

Et decora facta es vehementer nimis.

Ezechiel xvi 8.13

And behold Thy time was the time of lovers ...

And Thou wast made exceeding beautiful.

O Dearest Jesus, I love Thee, I love Thee, I love Thee!

O Blessed Lady, ora pro nobis!

O Dearest Angels and Saints in heaven, ora pro nobis!

From St. Thérèse of the Child Jesus and Holy Face, my patron:

My God, how I love Thee!

Mon Dieu, comment je T'aime !
