1995 Documented reliquary theca with relics of the Blessed Modestino of Jesus and Mary O.F.M. (Domenico Mazzarella)

Round glass-fronted yellow-metal reliquary theca housing the first-class ex ossibus  (of the bone) relics of the Blessed Modestino of Jesus and Mary. The relic is affixed to a red silk ground and identified in Latin on a typeset cedula label as B. Modestini A I. Et M.  (the Blessed Modestino of Jesus and Mary.).  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 on 29 January 1995 (the very day of his beatification) by the Postulator General of the Order.

Blessed Domenico Mazzarella O.F.M. (†1854) was an Italian Roman Catholic priest who was also a professed member of the Franciscan Friars Minor of the Alcantarines and assumed the name of "Modestino of Jesus and Mary". He devoted his life to service to those who were poor and sick and he himself later succumbed to cholera during an epidemic as he tended to the ill. He was beatified on 29 January 1995 and his Feastday is celebrated on 4 July.
