Valentines Appeal

Valentines Appeal

Many of my friends tell me they don't look forward to St. Valentine's Day. Some of them are single or experiencing rough times in relationships. Some are widows or widowers who are brokenhearted by the loss of their significant other. Still others feel as if the celebration is merely a marketing ploy to get them to spend money.

But I think of St. Valentine's Day a lot differently.

This St. Valentine's Day I pray you will remember one simple thing: God loves you. He loves you when you're at your best, and He loves you on your darkest days. God loves us unconditionally. He is here for us each and every day... and St. Valentine's Day is a great day to reflect on His love for all our brothers and sisters.

I want you to know that I love you too. I love you as a friend in Christ. I love you for your dedication to our poorest brothers and sisters. I love you for your prayers and support of the Oblates. And I love that you share your love with others.

You can share your love and faith with friends and family with a beautiful St. Valentine's card. When you send a St. Valentine's card to a loved one, you are sharing with the gift of prayer and reminding them that they are loved - by you and by God. And as you share God's love with your friends and family - you will be sharing love with people in need throughout the world. Your donation toward the card will allow the Oblates to continue sharing God's loving message with people in need.

Show your love for the special persons in your life. Say "I love you" in a special way! When you do - you'll also show your love for our brothers and sisters served by the Missionary Oblates of Mary Immaculate.


Your intentions will be remembered at Mass and placed in a capsule at the Shrine where the Oblates and Shrine pilgrims will pray for your needs for an entire year. Send me your prayer requests by February 9.

Include my St. Valentine's Day Petitions.
