Thought for the week as Pope Francis invites you to celebrate St. Valentine’s Day:

“Growing in love together is an art, a patient, beautiful, fascinating, journey.  It does not end once you have won each other’s love……Rather, it is precisely there where it begins.”   (Pope FrancisSt. Valentine’s Day 2014)
