Sacrificial Love

Today's martyrdom of St. Valentine and the blessing of Marriages brings a corrective to the modern, sometimes overly romanticized version of love. Instead of the romantic love tradition inherited from the troubadours and perpetuated in contemporary music, true love springs from a willingness to sacrifice for the other and for the family which can arise with God's grace from a loving, mutual partnership.

Even secular troubadours can probably agree that love is not all about cards, flowers and candy.
