St. Valentine's skull

Valentine's Day for many is about roses, chocolates and red hearts. But have you ever wondered how the saint for which this day was named, looks like right now?

In Rome, Italy, inside the Basilica di Santa Maria in Cosmedin, a.k.a. de Schola Graeca, where the famous Bocca della Verita (Mouth of Truth) can be found, the purported relics of St. Valentine are venerated in a chapel at the left-hand side of the church. And I am talking about his skull and some bones (the femur, I think).

It just shows that love really knows no boundaries, not even death. Happy Valentine's Day!
