Saint's heart stolen from Irish Anglican cathedral

March 05, 2012

An ancient relic, the heart of St. Laurence O’Toole, has apparently been stolen from Christ Church cathedral in Dublin.

The heart of the 12th-century Bishop of Dublin had been kept in a wooden box, surrounded by a metal cage, on the wall of the cathedral. It was discovered missing on March 3. Police say that there are no signs of a break-in at the cathedral, which is now administered by the (Anglican) Church of Ireland.
