2002 Documented reliquary theca with relic of the Blessed Giacinto Longhin (Andrea di Campodarsego), O.F.M. Cap.

Round glass-fronted yellow-metal reliquary theca housing the first-class ex ossibus  (of the bone) relic of the Blessed Giacinto Andrea Longhin. The relic is affixed to a red silk ground and identified in Latin on typeset cedula label as B. A. Longhin (Blessed Andrea Longhin) 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 Postulator General of the Order of Friars Minor Capuchin. The relic is accompanied by the original matching authentics document issued by the Order on October 21, 2002 only one day after his beatification. 

Blessed Giacinto Bonaventura Longhin (†1936) - in religious Andrea di Campodarsego - was an Italian Roman Catholic prelate and professed member from the Order of Friars Minor Capuchin who served as the Bishop of Treviso from 1904 until his death. Longhin held various roles of leadership within his order following his ordination such as acting as a teacher in Udine and acting as the Provincial Minister for his order. He became close friends with Giuseppe Melchiorre Sarto, Cardinal Patriarch of Venice. The latter became Pope Pius X (canonized in 1954) in 1903 who made his old friend Longhin the new head for the vacant Treviso episcopal see. The bishop became noted for his devotion to pastoral reform initiatives that sought to strengthen the spiritual formation for seminarians and ongoing formation for the diocesan priests. He was active in organizing and collaborating in relief initiatives during World War I and was even awarded the Cross of Merit for his activism. His death prompted widespread calls for the beatification cause to be initialized. John Paul II later beatified Longhin on October 20, 2002 and his feastday is clebrated on 26 June.
