this man is so dear to me

Our annual celebration of our love! Today is the feast of St. Faustine, a martyr beheaded by Diocletian. We are the only couple I know to celebrate this particular martyr; everyone else is all about a more well-known member of the Church Triumphant, St. Valentine. One fortuitous happenstance of celebrating this martyr over ol' Val is St. Faustine's Day is known for its deep sales on lovey-dovey chocolates! How lucky for us, don't you think? 😉

Sean's poem reads:

So much love there is between us
Not superficial but intravenous
That ancient Romans who had seen us
Could mistake us for Mars and Venus
Or mythic lovers of that genus
Happy feast of Saint Faustinus
