Sacrilege In Ireland

You try not to think about why these folks do these sorts of things. It probably doesn't matter. Whatever it is, it's probably way worse than anything I could come up with anyway.

Officials at Christ Church Cathedral in Dublin say they're distraught and perplexed over the theft of the church's most precious relic: the preserved heart of St. Laurence O'Toole.

O'Toole was Dublin's archbishop from 1162 to 1180. His heart has been displayed in the cathedral since the 13th century, stored in a wooden box and secured in an iron cage.

Police say someone cut through the cage Saturday and stole the relic in its heart-shaped container. They're studying closed-circuit TV footage but have arrested nobody.

Everybody pray for this demented soul and do some acts of reparation for the sacrilege.
