1972 Documented reliquary with relics of St. Agostina Pietrantoni, patron of nurses and abuse victims

Round yellow-metal glass-fronted reliquary theca housing the first-class ex ossibus  (of the bone) pre-canonization relic of Saint Agostina Pietrantoni. The relic is affixed to a red silk ground and identified in Latin on a manuscript cedula label as [B]. Augustina Pietrantoni (Blessed Agostina Pietrantoni) 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 Sisters of Charity of Saint Jeanne-Antide Thouret. The relic is accompanied by the original matching authentics document issued on 12 November 1972 (date of her Beatification)  by the Postulator of the Order responsible for the Cause of Beatification and Canonization. 

St. Agostina Pietrantoni (†1894) was an Italian professed religious and a nurse from the Thourets who worked in the Santo Spirito hospital in Rome where she tended to ill victims in a tuberculosis ward before a patient murdered her in 1894. Her canonization was held on 18 April 1999 in Saint Peter's Square. The canonization cause opened on 14 December 1945 under Pope Pius XII - she was then made a Servant of God - while Pope Paul VI named her as Venerable on 19 September 1968 before he beatified her on 12 November 1972. Her feast day is celebrated on 13 November and she is considered to be a Patron Saint of Abuse victims, Martyrs, People in poverty, People ridiculed for their piety, and Nurses.
