Valentine’s Day and the Ash Wednesday holiday marking the start of Lent fall on the same day for the first time since World War Two. The last time this convergence of holidays happened was in 1945.

Given the differing traditions of the two occasions, being that Ash Wednesday requires fasting and Valentine’s Day usually involves some sort of festive meal or chocolates. I think the only abstinence required every lent, is refraining from eating meat.

Valentine’s Day, also called Saint Valentine’s Day or the Feast of Saint Valentine, is celebrated annually on February 14.Valentine’s Day symbols that are used today include the heart-shaped outline, sweets, chocolates, red roses, doves, and the figure of the winged Cupid.

Ash Wednesday’s penance, reflection and mourning, marking the start of Lent’s 40 days, which mirror the 40 days Jesus spent fasting.

The ashes used on Ash Wednesday are made from the burning of palms from Palm Sunday the year before.

“Remember you are dust and unto dust you shall return,” priests tell parishioners.

The Lenten season to me is like a renewal of love, Jesus Christ dying for us for Love.

The ultimate theme of Valentine’s Day is romance. In its ideal form, Love

(Hillsong)

I’m reaching for the prize, I’m giving everything
I give my life for this it’s what I live for
Nothing will keep me from, all that You have for me
You hold my head up high, I live for You

Greater is He, that’s living in me
Than he that is in the world

Faith, I can move the mountain
I can do all things through Christ, I know
Faith, standing and believing
I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me

I’m reaching for the prize, I’m giving everything
I give my life for this it’s what I live for
Nothing will keep me from, all that You have for me
You hold my head up high, I live for You

Greater is He, that’s living in me
Than he that is in the world

Faith, I can move the mountain
I can do all things through Christ, I know
Faith, standing and believing
I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me

Faith, I can move the mountain
I can do all things through Christ, I know
Faith, standing and believing
I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me

Greater is He, that’s living in me
Than he that is in the world

Faith, I can move the mountain
I can do all things through Christ, I know
Faith, standing and believing
I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me

Faith, I can move the mountain
I can do all things through Christ, I know
Faith, standing and believing
I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me
