Saint’s 900 year old heart stolen

According to CBS News, the Irish saint’s heart had been on display in the cathedral since the 13th century. It was kept in a heart-shaped wooden box and was then locked inside a small, square iron cage that was mounted on the wall of a chapel dedicted to his memory. Someone cut through two of those bars and pried the cage open in order to steal the relic on Saturday.
