Relics of St. Mary Magdalene Descend from Mt. Athos

Not on their own accord, but in a fancy golden box.

I am curious; when they say "the palm of St. Mary Magdalene," do they mean palm as in frond, or palm as in piece of her hand? Each equally possible, knowing the Orthodox fascination with bodies and body parts, particularly when they are inccorrupt.

Read the story here.

I do hope that Dan Brown is not associated with St. Mary Magdalene for too much longer, by the way.
