1984 Documented theca of the Blessed Clemente Marchisio, founder of the Daughters of Saint Joseph of Rivalba

Round glass-fronted metal reliquary theca housing the first-class ex ossibus  (of the bone) relic of the Blessed Clemente Marchisio. The relic is affixed to a red silk ground and identified in Latin on a typeset cedula label as C. Marchisio ([Blessed] Clemente Marchisio).  On the back, under the 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 the Most Holy Trinity and of the Captives (known as Trinitians). The relic is accompanied by the original matching authentics document issued and signed on September 30, 1984 (the day of the beatification) by the Postulator General of the Order responsible for the cause of the beatification. 

Blessed Clemente Marchisio (†1903) was an Italian Roman Catholic priest who served as a parish priest in the Archdiocese of Turin. Marchisio served as an assistant priest before traveling across Italian cities as word of his mission and holiness spread. In the spirit of evangelical and devotional zeal he established the Daughters of Saint Joseph of Rivalba to suit the religious needs of females. The order had an emphasis on the Eucharist and on Saint Joseph himself. On 30 September 1984, he was beatified after one healing was recognized as a miracle attributed to his intercession. His feast day is celebrated on December 16th and he is venerated as the holy patron of the Daughters of Saint Joseph of Rivalba.
