Round white-metal glass-fronted reliquary theca housing first-class ex ossibus  (of the bone) relic of the Blessed Filippo Rinaldi The relic is affixed to a red silk ground surrounded by gilt paperolle ornamentation and identified in Latin on a typeset cedula label as Ex ossibus B. Philippi Rinaldi ( of the bone of the Blessed Filippo Rinaldi).  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 Salesians of Don Bosco (SDB), formally known as the Society of Saint Francis de Sales. 

Blessed Filippo Rinaldi (†1931) was an Italian Roman Catholic priest and a professed member from the Salesians of Don Bosco who served as the third Rector Major for the order from 1922 until his death in 1931. He founded the Secular Institute of Don Bosco Volunteers. Rinaldi was close friends since his childhood to Giovanni Bosco and Paolo Albera and it was Bosco who guided Rinaldi who was torn in his adolescence between the farming life and the religious life. The order held him in high esteem from the outset and noted the potential within him as well as seeing the charism of Bosco encompassed in Rinaldi. Pope John Paul II beatified Him in 1990 and His Feast day is clelbrated on 5 December.
