If you ever get the desire to pray in front of a leg bone, this might be your chance.
For those who might believe this is a joke, you will get a proper link to the publisher’s of these photos.
The Relic of St Oliver Plunkett in kept in the parish church of his native Oldcastle in Ireland. Please do not let your children pray in front of his cut of head. They might get nightmares.

I am not sure what persons in the Bible, this kind of wickedness best can be related to. But I have concluded that the dull mind of King Nebuchadnezzar might be a suitable example. The idolatry of the Babylonian king made him mad. He started to eat grass “like a cow”, and even his nails became deformed. He must have both looked and acted like an animal.
Immediately what had been said about Nebuchadnezzar was fulfilled. He was driven away from people and ate grass like cattle. His body was drenched with the dew of heaven until his hair grew like the feathers of an eagle and his nails like the claws of a bird.
I am not sure if the bones of “St. Oliver” can hear any prayers. But the priest have at least given the worshipers a notice of whom this leg bone is supposed to have belonged too, before his grave was opened and looted by Roman Catholic priests.
