Documented theca with relics of St Anne, Mother of the Blessed Virgin Mary

Small oval glass-fronted silver reliquary theca housing precious first-class ex ossibus (from the bone) relic of St. Anne. The relic is affixed to a red silk background decorated with silver wire ornamentation and identified on a manuscript cedula label as S. Annae, Matr. V.M. (Saint Anne, Mother of the Virgin Mary). On the back, under the protected cap, the theca is secured with a perfectly-preserved seal of red Spanish wax bearing an imprint of a coat of arms of Fr. Stefano Missir (†1863), Titular Bishop of Irenopolis in Cilicia (1837-1863). The relic is accompanied by an original matching authentics document issued and signed by Fr. Missir in 1840 under the orders of Pope Gregory XVI (p. 1831-1846).

Saint Anne was the mother of Mary and grandmother of Jesus according to apocryphal Christian and Islamic tradition. She is a holy patron of Canada, carpenters; childless people; equestrians; grandparents; homemakers/housewives; lacemakers; lost articles; Fasnia (Tenerife); Mainar; Detroit; miners; mothers; moving house; old-clothes dealers; poverty; pregnancy; seamstresses; stablemen; sterility; mothers; and children.
