St. Valentine may not have had Irish roots but nowadays his remains are rooted in Dublin, Ireland. Yes, that’s correct. In the 1800s an Irish Carmelite priest requested Valentine’s remains to be exhumed and moved to Whitefriar Street Carmelite Church in Dublin, Ireland. And, the pope agreed. So….it’s official. Valentine, the heart of hearts, has a place in Irish hearts.
Happy St. Valentines Day.
Until next time, keep the love going, Martha.
