This is real. A piece of toe of King Louis IX, now Saint Louis, is now on show in it's namesake city, no less than St. Louis, Missouri. The holy relic was gifted from the Cathedrale Monreal of Sicily to the Archdiocese of St. Louis, Missouri. How is that for connections? Well, here it is. Would you go to see this bit of toe? You can never believe what St. Louis, Missouri gets up to.
The relic, a piece of toe bone, came to the Archdiocese of St. Louis from Sicily

NO, I have seen enough relics when the nuns brought us to visit the churches in Italy. Enough is enough.

@RebeccasFarm Those things are creepy, the nuns were really sadistic to bring us to see those things.

@RebeccasFarm If I were to go to St. Louis, it would be for many other things they have there. Have you ever been to the Arch? I have twice.

Can they prove it is really a saint's toe? What if it is just a random bone?

I am usually on the side of these holy relics being fakes. It is an age old practice and has been going on for centuries. Some of these saints had so many toes and fingers!

When I was a kid, the church we went to had a shrine to St Jude and if I remember correctly, there was a relic but I don't remember what it was. And I think it was relocated to another church sometime after we moved from that town.

@RebeccasFarm I found out much later in life that St Jude is the patron of hopeless cases... maybe that's why I sat near the shrine when I attended, and didn't even know he was looking after me.

We went to the underground crypts at the Vatican and was told that a finger we could see was St Peter's. I think that's the story. It was a good while ago. I don't think I'd bother going to see a toe though (see what I did there, as @FourWinds would say?)
