1989 Documented reliquary theca with relic of Saint Camillus de Lellis, founder of the Order of Clerks Regular, Ministers of the Infirm

Round glass-fronted white-metal reliquary theca housing the first-class ex ossibus  (of the bone) relic of Saint Camillus de Lellis. The relic is affixed to a red silk ground and identified in Latin on a typeset cedula label as Ex oss. S. Camilli (Saint Camillus de Lellis).  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 Order of Clerks Regular, Ministers of the Infirm. The relic is accompanied by the original matching authentics document issued in 1989 by the Postulator General of the Order. 

Saint Camillus de Lellis, M.I., († 1614) was an Italian priest who founded a religious Order of Clerks Regular, Ministers of the Infirm (abbreviated as M.I.), better known as the Camillians dedicated to the care of the sick. Camillus was beatified by Pope Benedict XIV in the year 1742, and canonized by him four years later in 1746. His mortal remains are located in the altar in the Church of St. Mary Magdalene in Rome, along with several of his relics. He is a holy patron of the sick, hospitals, nurses, and physicians and invoked to assist with gambling. His feast day is commemorated on July 14th.
