1999 Documented reliquary theca with relics of St. Arcangelo Tadini, founder of the Worker Sisters of the Holy House of Nazareth

Round glass-fronted white-metal reliquary theca housing the first-class ex corpore  (of the body) pre-canonization relics of St. Arcangelo Tadini. The relic is affixed to a red silk ground decorated with mother-of-pear petals and identified in Latin on a bi-color typeset cedula label as S. Arcang. Tadini Ex corpore (from the body of the Blessed Arcangelo Tadini).  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 Worker Sisters of the Holy House of Nazareth. The relic is accompanied by the original matching authentics document issued on 3 October 1999 (the very day of his beatification) by the Postulator General of the Order.

Saint Arcangelo Tadini (†1912) was an Italian Roman Catholic priest who founded the Worker Sisters of the Holy House of Nazareth, a religious congregation dedicated to the poor and ill while taking advantage of the Industrial Revolution to support women in work and education. Tadini was disabled due to a lame leg he had after suffering an accident while he studied for the priesthood. Tadini was beatified on 3 October 1999 and was canonized on 26 April 2009.
