Valentine’s Day. Love it or hate it, it comes around every year and there is no escaping it! Thanks to St. Valentine nearly the whole world takes a day to celebrate love! Unfortunately, thanks largely to modern media, many of us view love through a lens distorted by a lifetime of spoken and unspoken messages about love and relationships that bear no resemblance to reality. This tainted view leaves many feeling extra empty and lonely on this day. This is NOT OK! There is an endless fount of Love available for every person! Join us as Fr. Charles Samson sheds new light on St. Paul’s famous “Ode to Love.”
Fr. Charles Samson is currently a Seminary Professor of Scripture at Kenrick-Glennon Seminary in St. Louis, Pastor at St. Mary of Victories and Associate Pastor, Basilica of St. Louis. King of France (Old Cathedral). Fr. Sampson has led many pilgrimages to the Holy Land and is the author of the book, Come and See. A Catholics guide to the Holy Land.
WHAT TO BRING?
*Bring what you would like to drink and we will provide dessert!
*Bring your valentine! Ladies- if you don't have a valentine or he won't come with you, bring a friend or a group of friends and make it a Galantine's date! Don't have a friend- come prepared to make one!
*Bring your Scripture and pilgrimage questions! Its not everyday we have a scripture professor and a pilgrimage expert waiting to take Q&A!
WHO SHOULD COME?
Everyone! All are welcome- need not be Catholic to attend. Absolutely everyone needs to hear again and again the famous 3 word sermon...God loves you! Whether you have never heard this message or it or heard it a million times. The fact is when you come to know and accept this love it changes everything! We are all human and sadly many of us find hardest person to love is ourselves. This has much to do with how we have been conditioned define love. "Love your neighbor as yourself," first requires us to love ourselves. If you have ever found it hard to love yourself or anyone you need to hear this talk!
*Teens and mature youth are welcome.
