Almighty God, by whose grace and power thy holy Martyr Valentine triumphed over suffering and despised death: Grant, we beseech the, that enduring hardness and waxing valiant in fight, we may with him receive the crown of everlasting life; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

¶ Or this:

Almighty and everlasting God, who didst strengthen thy blessed martyr Valentine with the virtue of constancy in faith and truth: Grant us in like manner for love of thee to despise the prosperity of this world, and to fear none of its adversities; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
