1971 Documented reliquary with relic of St. Frances Xavier Cabrini, patron saint of immigrants

Round yellow-metal glass-fronted reliquary theca housing the first-class ex corpore  (of the body) relic of St. Frances Xavier Cabrini. The relic is affixed to a red silk ground and identified in Latin on a typeset cedula label as S. F. X. Cabini (St. Frances Xavier Cabrini) 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 Bishop Tarcisio Vincenzo Benedetti, O.C.D., (†1972), Bishop of Lodi (1952-1972). The relic is accompanied by the original matching authentics document issued in 1971 by the Postulator General responsible for the Cause of Beatification and Canonization. 

Saint Frances Xavier Cabrini, M.S.C. (Italian: Francesca Saverio Cabrini; †1917), also called Mother Cabrini, was an Italian-American religious sister, who founded the Missionary Sisters of the Sacred Heart of Jesus, a Catholic religious institute that was a major support to the Italian immigrants to the United States. She was the first naturalized citizen of the United States to be canonized by the Roman Catholic Church, on July 7, 1946. St. Frances Xavier Cabrini is the patron saint of immigrants, and of the religious institute, the Servants of the Lord and the Virgin of Matará, (Servidoras).
