Saint Valentine Story for Children

Saint Valentine lived a long ago when Claudius II was the ruler of Rome. Claudius II did not like Christians. He loved having lots of soldiers to fight in his wars! Claudius II made a law that people couldn’t get married. Claudius II thought that if young boys got married and had families they would not want to go off and fight in his wars.

This made things really tricky for the Christians following God. They knew that God wanted them to worship Him, not the false gods of Claudius II. They also knew that God wanted them to get married and start families. Saint Valentine had the special job of being God’s helper during this time. He was a priest, so he would secretly marry the men and women who wanted to get married. This is why today he is called the patron saint of love and marriage.
