Happy St. Valentine's Day

Yes, the very skull of the patron saint of lovers, at the church of Santa Maria in Cosmedin. Momento mori, all you lovebirds?

For those looking for a cheerier feastday, it's also the feast of Ss. Cyril and Methodius, apostles to the Slavs.

Have to comment on this!!

Did you know that there be his head and he left his HEART in Dublin?

Valentine's heart is in the Carmelite parish church of Whitefriar St. Dublin city!! Great devotion and there's always a mass there! AND, all couples can come on Feb 14th and have their vows renewed at a special mass that evening infront of the Heart (In a box, looking not much bigger than his head, actually!!).
