1994 Documented theca with relics of St. Thérèse Couderc, co-founder of the Sisters of the Cenacle

Round glass-fronted metal reliquary theca housing the first-class ex ossibus  (of the bone) pre-canonization relic of St. Thérèse Couderc. The relic is affixed to a red silk ground and identified in Latin on a typeset cedula label as B. Teresa Couderc (Blessed Teresa Couderc).  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 Sisters of the Cenacle. The relic is accompanied by the original matching authentics document issued and signed on May 10, 1970 (the very day of her canonization) by the Postulator General of the Order responsible for the cause of beatification and canonization. 

St. Thérèse Couderc (†1885) was a French Roman Catholic professed religious and the co-founder of the Sisters of the Cenacle. Couderc underwent humiliations during her time as a nun for she was forced to resign from positions and was ridiculed and mocked due to false accusations made against her though this softened towards the end of her life. She was a spiritual writer having written on sacrifice and service to God and left a series of spiritual writings. Pope Pius XII beatified the late religious in Saint Peter's Basilica in 1951 and on May 10, 1970, she was canonized as a saint by Pope Paul VI.
