1968 documented theca with relics of St. Lucia (Lucy), Martyr of Syracuse, Patron of the Blind and Writers

Round metal reliquary theca housing the first-class-class ex ossibus (of the bone) relics of Saint Lucia, Martyr. The relic is affixed to a red silk ground and identified in Latin on a typeset cedula label as S. Luciae V. M. (Saint Lucy, Virgin & Martyr).  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 Cardinal Angelo Dell'Acqua (†1972, Titular Archbishop of Chalcedon and Vicar General of Rome (1968-1972). The relic is accompanied by an original matching authentics document issued in 1968 and signed by Cardinal Dell'Acqua. The document is laminated in clear plastic for safekeeping. 

St. Lucia of Syracuse (†304), also known as Saint Lucy, or Saint Lucia (Italian: Santa Lucia), was a young Christian martyr who died during the Diocletianic Persecution who is venerated as a saint by the Roman Catholic, Anglican, Lutheran, and Orthodox Churches. She is one of eight women, who along with the Blessed Virgin Mary, are commemorated by name in the Canon of the Mass. She is a patron of the blind; martyrs; Perugia, Italy; Mtarfa, Malta; epidemics; salesmen, Syracuse, Italy, throat infections, and writers.
