This article was so weird I just had to post it. Questions I have: What does a 900-year-old heart look like? What's left of it? Is it ashes or was it preserved in some way? I mean no disrespect, and I've seen relics in cathedrals before, but none of them were hearts. The heart was in a heart-shaped box bolted to the wall, and there were no signs of a break-in. 900-year-old saint's heart vanishes from cathedral Cathedral staff called the disappearance of the relic "truly awful and strange" and said they were "shocked and saddened."
