1983 Documented reliquary theca with relics of the Blessed Giacomo Cusmano, founder of the Boccone del Povero

Round yellow-metal glass-fronted reliquary theca housing the first-class ex ossibus  (of the bone) relic of the Blessed Giacomo Cusmano. The relic is affixed to a red silk ground and identified in Latin on a typeset cedula label as B.J. Cusmano (the Blessed Giacomo Cusmano). 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 Postulator General of the Order of the Most Holy Trinity and of the Captives (better known as the Trinitarians). The relic is accompanied by an original matching authentics document issued and sealed by the Postulator General of the Order on 30 October 1983 (on the day of His beatification) and comes in the original velvet-lined case of the issue containing a double-sided medal with a portrait of the Blessed. 

Blessed Giacomo Cusmano (†1888) was an Italian Roman Catholic priest and the founder of the Congregatio Missionariorum Servorum Pauperum which is also known as the Boccone del Povero (Morsel of the Poor) and the Sisters Servants of the Poor. He was beatified by Pope John Paul II on 30 October 1983.
