2001 Documented reliquary theca with relics of the Blessed Maria Adeodata Pisani, Protectress against cancer

Round white-metal glass-fronted reliquary theca housing the first-class ex ossibus  (of the bone) relic of the Blessed Maria Adeodata PisaniThe relic is affixed to a red silk ground identified in Latin on a typeset cedula label as B. M.  Adeodatae Pisani / Ex ossibus (the Blessed Maria Adeodata Pisani, of the bone) 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 Ernesto Piacentini (1938-2018), Italian Franciscan theologian and the Postulator General of the Cause for Canonization. The relic is accompanied by the original matching authentics document issued in 2001 by the Order of Friars Minor Conventual (OFM Conv), commonly known as the Conventual Franciscans.

Blessed Maria Adeodata Pisani (†1855) was a Maltese nun remembered for her sanctity, love of the poor, self-imposed sacrifices, and ecstasies so complete that she was seen levitating. Pope John Paul II venerated 24 April 2001 (decree of heroic virtues) and beatified 9 May 2001. The day after John Paul II signed and released the decree on both her virtues and miracle, paving the path for the beatification 9 May 2001, the bishops released a pastoral letter emphasizing the serious difficulties that she had to face, stating that Maria Adeodata Pisani had had "a difficult childhood as her parents did not live together. She renounced and disposed of her wealth, willingly living as a cloistered nun."
