"Valentine's day" is named after Saint Valentine . He was a Christian bishop and a physician.

He refused to treat his own fatally sick mother because she would not give up her belief in pagan God Jupiter and get baptized.

The disease killed her! #ValentinesDay
According to Legenda Aurea (compiled in c. 1275 CE), Saint Valentine was described as "destroyer of non christian pagan idols"
Valentine was abusing Non-Christian Gods and creating communal conflict.

He was jailed.

Romans wanted to release him provided he toned down.

"What is your opinion on (our) Gods Jupiter & Mercury"- they asked.

'Wretched and foul men.Filthy. Carnal. Of filthy birth'-He answered
Valentine was a Physician.

But he never treated his patients until they converted to Christianity.

"Believe that Jesus is God. Destroy your idols. Get baptized and confess your sins.

I will then treat your son" - he used to tell his patients.
