1933 Documented theca with a relic of St. Catherine Labouré of the Miraculous Medal of Our Lady of Graces

Oval glass-fronted brass reliquary theca decorated around the perimeter with a row of crystals and housing a pre-canonization first-class ex carnibus (of the flesh) relic of the Saint Catherine Labouré. The relic is affixed to a silk ground and identified in Latin on a manuscript cedula label as B. C. Labour.  (Blessed Catherine Labouré) On the back, under a protective cap, the theca is secured with a seal of black Spanish wax bearing an imprint of a coat of arms of the Congregation of the Mission. The relic is accompanied by the original matching authentics document issued and signed in 1933, the year of her beatification, and signed by Postulator General responsible for the cause of her beatification. 

Saint Catherine Labouré, D.C.. († 1876) was a French religious sister. She was a member of the Daughters of Charity of Saint Vincent de Paul and is a Marian visionary. She is believed to have relayed the request from the Blessed Virgin Mary to create the famous Miraculous Medal of Our Lady of Graces worn by millions of Catholics. She was beatified​ i​n 1933 by Pope Pius XI and canonized in 1947 by Pope Pius XII. Saint Catherine's feast day is observed on November 28 and she is a Holy Patron of Miraculous Medal, infirmed people, and the elderly.
