Anthony M. Santarelli, Postulator General of the Order in 1920's responsible for a cause for beatification and canonization through the judicial processes required by the Roman Catholic Church. The reliquary is accompanied by the original matching authentics document issued by Fr. Anthony M. Santarelli and dated 1927.
