2001 Documented reliquary theca with a relic of the Maltese Blessed Nazju Falzon O.F.S.

Round glass-fronted metal reliquary theca housing the first-class ex ossibus  (of the bone) relic of the Blessed Nazju Falzon O.F.SThe relic is affixed to a red silk ground and identified in Latin on a typeset cedula label as B. Nazju Falzon / Ex Oss (of the bone of the Blessed Nazju Falzon).  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 Friars Minor. The relic is accompanied by the original matching authentics document issued and signed on May 9th of 2001 (the very day of his beatification) by the Postulator General of the Order responsible for the cause of beatification and canonization. 

Blessed Nazju Falzon (†1865) was a Maltese cleric and a professed member of the Secular Franciscan Order who was an apt catechist and noted for his commitment to religious instruction. He did not become an ordained priest because he did not feel he was adequate enough for such an honor. Falzon's beatification took place on May 9 of 2001 in Malta when Pope John Paul II visited the island nation.
