This was a day that was sacred to the sexual frenzy of the goddess Juno.
This day also honoured the Roman gods, Lupercus and Faunus, as well as the legendary twin brothers, who supposedly founded Rome, REMUS AND ROMULUS
Lupercous= hunter of wolves
The Romans called the festival the “lupercalia.”The custom of exchanging valentines and all the other traditions in honour of Lupercus who was also linked with an ancient pagan practice of teen-agers “going steady” it usually led to fornication.
The day of Lupercalia
On this day, the Luperci or priests of Lupercus dressed in goat skins for a bloody ceremony. The wolf god would sacrifice goats and a dog and then smear themselves with blood; he would run around a hill while waving a goat skin called “februa.” from where we get the name February. Women would sit around the hill, as the priest would strike them with a goat skin to make them fertile.
All the young women in the city would gather in the city and their names were put in the boxes. These “love notes” were called billets. The men of Rome would draw a billet, and the woman whose name was on the billet became his sexual lust partner with whom he would fornicate until the next Lupercalia or February 14th.
The Colour Red
The colour red as sacred to that day because of the blood from the goat and dog and the heart shape was not after the human heart but represents the human matrix or opening to the chamber of sacred copulation.
St. Valentine’s Day
Saint valentine’s was an obscure, possibly legendary, martyr who by tradition was put to death by the Romans on February 14th, about AD 269. This day was made a feast day by the Roman Catholic Church. The day of his death coincided with that of the Roman pagan feast of the Idol Lupercalia….the celebration of the two merged.
So Valentine’s Day is nothing but a continuation of the Lupercalia.
On this day, millions of young people are loosing their virginity and polluting their body with STDs, glorifying MARINE SPIRITS and capping it with abortions as a result of indiscriminate unwanted pregnancies because of only one inconsequential day. And for many others, it’s Ok to have sexual intercourse just because it is Valentine.
Please, make the right choice and stay away from this wickedness. For many it is a day to make business. All the shops will during this week be clad in RED. Stay away from this frenzy.
