The Last “I Do”

“The Last “I Do”” is episode #562 of the Adventures in Odyssey audio series. It was written by Leilani Wells, and originally aired on February 12, 2005.


Kids' Radio tells the story about a priest who defies a third-century Roman emperor who outlaws marriage.


Thrills, chills, daring rescues, chases, and winning the heart of the beautiful girl! That’s what Valentine’s Day is all about! At least it is before you hear the true story of St. Valentine.

In this episode of Kids' Radio, Connie receives a letter from "All Valentined Out," who inquires as to what the purpose of Valentine's Day really is. Connie responds by telling a story.

It all began with a man named Valentine who was imprisoned for refusing to renounce his faith and give up his belief that the family is truly the backbone of society. While in prison, he met Julia, the blind daughter of the prison jailer. He prayed for her sight to be restored—and it was! The Emperor agreed to set Valentine free, if only Valentine would stop doing marriage ceremonies, and renounce his faith. Valentine said that he could not do either one. Emperor Claudius asked Valentine what his God had ever done for him, Valentine replied that God healed Julia, while Claudius maintained it was Jupiter, their god, who healed Julia. Julia and her father, however, believed Valentine, and they were both brought to Christ through the event. Valentine was executed on February 14. The church declared him a saint, and the day was dedicated in honor and memory of him. Connie uses this story to teach "All Valentined Out" that St. Valentine's sacrifices have given us a reason to remember and celebrate those we love on February 14.

This plot section is too short and should be expanded. »

Discussion Questions

1. Why do you think Valentine said that families are the backbone of our civilization? How has being part of a family helped you learn how to love others?

2. How did Valentine manage to show God's love to a blind woman, despite being in chains?

3. See what the Bible says about husbands and wives in Ephesians 5:22-33. How is this similar to or different from the messages you hear about love in popular movies, music and TV shows?
