St Valentine - Burial Location


Not too many people know it, but Saint Valentine actually is a "Dub".

Well, sort of ... a church in Whitefriar Street (Aungier Street), built in the 19th century, became his home.

In 1835 Pope Gregory XVI gave the relics of Saint Valentine to the Carmelite Church there, to boost Catholicism. So what better place to celebrate Valentine's Day?

Proposing there should be a guarantee for success. Unless you join the ranks of a few Doubting Thomases claiming that the saint's relics were actually mixed up with the relics of another, lesser known St. Valentine.
