Relics of the St Francis Xavier

At the Gesu today, to mark his feastday, the arm of St Francis Xavier was exposed for veneration: from our Rome correspondent.
I occassionally tell my parishioners it is their duty to supply our Church with relics, preferrably by becoming saints themselves.

I thought St Francis Xavier's body was in Goa and incorrupt? Surely they wouldn't chop off his arm while it had flesh on it?
