Valentijnsdag - we vieren het al jaren, maar wie was nu eigenlijk die Valentijn? En wat had hij met liefde te maken? #TrouwfotografieFreya

In 1868, a wealthy French family made a donation to the the Franciscan church: a small wooden box labeled "Corpus Valentini Martyris," or ‘the Body of Saint Valentine.’ The church sent the relic to Saint Francis’ Church, in the rundown neighborhood of Gorbals, Glasgow. It sat there in almost complete anonymity for over a century. In 1999, it was moved to the nearby, Blessed St John Duns Scotus. Every Valentine’s Day, it is decorated with flowers while the friars say prayers for lovers.
