1991 Documented theca with relics of 3 Martyrs of Vietnam: St. Peter Tu, St. Matthew Alonso Leziniana & St. Vincent Yen Do

Round glass-fronted yellow-metal reliquary theca housing the first-class ex ossibus  (of the bone) relics of 3 Christian Martyrs: St. Peter Tu, St. Matthew Alonzo Leziniana & St. Vincenzo Yen. The relics are affixed to a ground of red silk surrounded by silver wire ornamentation and identified on a typeset cedulae labels as S. Franc. X Mau / S. Agatha V.M. / S. Luciae V.M. (St. Francis Xavier Mau / St. Agatha, Virgin & Martyr  / St. Lucy, Virgin & Martyr ).  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 Preachers, also known as the Dominicans. The relic is accompanied by the original matching authentics document issued and signed in 1991 by the Postulator General of the Order responsible for the cause of beatification and canonization.

His Feastday is celebrated on January 22
