Oh My Bleeding Heart!

Ah, Catholic iconography! No other faith can do pomp and circumstance like Catholics can, let's face it. The scary-beautiful aspect of it all is intoxicating. I love the morbid names of the churches, like Church of the Holy Sephulchre, Our Lady of the Bleeding Hearts, etc. We all know what it feels like to have a bleeding heart, so open your shirt and expose it!
