[P.] (Saint Hyacinthe-Marie Cormier, Procurator of the Order of Preachers )  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 Order of Friars Preachers (better known as the Dominicans).

Blessed Hyacinthe-Marie Cormier, O.P. (†1916) was a French Dominican friar and priest, who served as the 76th Master of his Order from 1904 until 1916. Cormier was noted for the quality of his retreats and his powerful preaching. His influence helped to bring about the beatifications of Reginald of Orleans, Bertrand Garrigua, Raymond of Capua, and Andrew Abellon. As Master of the Order, Cormier played a pivotal role in reorganizing the College of St. Thomas in Rome, the future Pontifical University of Saint Thomas Aquinas, commonly referred to as the Angelicum. He was beatified by Pope John Paul II on 20 November 1994.
