FACE of the day:  Saint John Bosco relics on display in Liverpool:

The relics of a 19th Century Italian Catholic priest, St John Bosco, noted for his work with the poor on the streets of Turin, on display inside Liverpool’s Metropolitan Cathederal. They have been brought to the city as part of a world tour, which began in 2009 and culminates in 2015, the 200th anniversary of his birth. The UK tour began in Scotland and takes in Birmingham, London and Cardiff. Hundreds of pilgrims are expected to attend a Mass in Liverpool, which begins at 15:00 GMT. Peter Byrne/PA Wire

St. John Bosco is the Patron of Stage Magicians. His effigy is made of wax. Or is it..?
