1987 Documented reliquary theca with relics of the Blessed Pierre-François Jamet, founder of the Sisters of the Bon Sauveur

Round white-metal glass-fronted reliquary theca housing the first-class ex ossibus  (of the bone) relic of the Blessed Joseph Pierre-François Jamet. The relic is affixed to a red silk ground decorated by silver wire and identified in Latin on typeset cedula label as B. Petri F. Jamet (Blessed Joseph Pierre-François Jamet).  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 the Passionists. The relic is accompanied by the original matching authentics document issued and sealed in 1990 by the Postulator General of the Order

Blessed Pierre-François Jamet (†1845) was a French Roman Catholic priest who refused to take the oath of allegiance during the French Revolution. He is also called the "Second Founder" due to restoring the dwindled order of the Sisters of the Bon Sauveur. In 1827 he was awarded the Legion of Honor for his service as a priest. Jamet was beatified in 1987 after Pope John Paul II approved a miracle attributed to his intercession. Jamet remains the patron of the order he restored.
