1990 Documented reliquary theca with relic of Saint Juan Grande Román, O.H.

Small round glass-fronted white-metal reliquary theca housing the first-class ex cineribus  (of the bodily ashes) pre-canonization relic of Saint Juan Grande Román. The relic is affixed to a red silk ground and identified in Latin on a typeset cedula label as b. Joan. Grande (the Blessed Juan Grande [Román]).  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 the Hospitallers of Saint John of God. The relic is accompanied by the original matching authentics document issued in 1990 by the Postulator General of the Order. 

Saint Juan Grande Román (†1600) was a Spanish Roman Catholic who was a professed religious of the Hospitallers of Saint John of God. He adopted the name of "John the Sinner" and he died of the plague after he tended to those who suffered from it. He was beatified in 1858 after Pope Pius IX recognized two miracles attributed to his intercession and a third allowed Pope John Paul II to canonize him in 1996.
