TOURS, FRANCE - OCTOBER 15, 2016: Workmen install the statue of Saint Martin on top of the dome of the Basilica of St. Martin, in central France. Relics were placed inside the right arm of the statue. The statue weighs 1.7 tonnes and is 4 meters high. It was removed from the top of the dome of the Basilica on February 17, 2014 amid concerns over its stability. The Basilica was built over the tomb of St. Martin. / AFP PHOTO / GUILLAUME SOUVANT ***** "Lord, While you command, I will fight beneath your banner.” - St. Martin of Tours *****
