St. Valentine was a bishop who lived in roman occupied territory. Though not much is known about his life, he was a dedicated man of faith who worked to lead souls to Christ when doing so was illegal. According to tradition, St. Valentine even married young couples in defiance of the law and preformed miracles related to those in love. Martyred for his faith, his tomb in Terni, Italy, became a common pilgrimage in the 5th Century for young couples who sought his intercession. St. Valentine is the patron saint of bee keepers, engaged couples, epilepsy, happy marriages, plague, young people, and more.
