1989 Documented reliquary with relic of St. Joseph of Cupertino, patron of pilots & students

Round white-metal glass-fronted reliquary theca housing the second-class ex tunica  (of the tunic) relic of Saint Joseph of Cupertino. The relic is affixed to a red silk ground and identified in Latin on a manuscript cedula label as Ex Tunica S. Josephi a Cupert. (from the tunic of Saint Joseph of Cupertino) 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 Friars Minor Conventual (OFM Conv), commonly known as the Conventual Franciscans or Minorites. The relic is accompanied by the original matching authentics document issued in 1989 by the Postulator of the Order responsible for the Cause of Beatification and Canonization. 

Saint Joseph of Cupertino, O.F.M. Conv. (†1663) was an Italian Conventual Franciscan friar who is honored as a Christian mystic and saint. He was said to have been remarkably unclever, but prone to miraculous levitation and intense ecstatic visions that left him gaping. Joseph was beatified in 1753 and canonized in 1767. He is a patron of The City of Osimo, aviation, astronauts, mental handicaps, test taking, students.
