Saint of the day: Maradona may have the hand of God, but Saint Nicholas of Tolentino has the holy arms. Forty years after the saint's death, a German monk broke into his tomb and made off with his arms as relics. The next morning, the monk found himself back at the tomb, and since then the arms have bled whenever the church is in danger. Although the rest of Nicholas's body decomposed, the arms remained fresh and were given their own Chapel of the Holy Arms.
