Saint's heart stolen from Irish Anglican cathedral

Catholic World News - 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.
