    St Francis xaviers baptised over a 100,000 people so those nice jesuit people in 1614 took his arm off and put it in the vatican, at least it didn't cost him an arm and a leg to go to Canada.
    I don't get it, what's the appeal of a manky severed limb?.

    That is more than a little bit creepy. I have no idea what people expect by "venerating" a limb.
