1955 documented reliquary theca with first-class relic of Carmelite Saint Simon Stock

Round gilt metal reliquary theca housing the first-class-class de ossibus (of the bone) relics of Saint Simon Stock. The relic is affixed to a red silk ground and identified in Latin on a typeset cedula label as S. Simonis Stok C. (Saint Simon Stock, Confessor).  On the back, under a protective cap, the theca is secured with a seal of red Spanish wax bearing an imprint of a coat of arms of the Discalced Carmelites order. The relic is accompanied by an original matching authentics document issued in 1955 and signed by Fr. Joannes a Jesu Maria (O.C.D.), the Postulator General of the Carmelite Order. The document is laminated in clear plastic for safekeeping. 

Saint Simon Stock, an Englishman who lived in the 13th century, was an early Prior of the Carmelite religious order. Little is known about his life with any historical certainty. The Blessed Virgin Mary is traditionally said to have appeared to him and given him the Carmelite habit, the Brown Scapular. Thus, popular devotion to Saint Simon Stock is usually associated with devotion to Our Lady of Mount Carmel. His feast is commemorated on May 16.
