Documented reliquary theca with a relic of the Blessed Giuseppe Ambrosoli, M.C.C.I., the Saint Doctor of Uganda

Rare round yellow-metal reliquary theca housing the first-class ex ossibus (of the bone) relic of Blessed Giuseppe Ambrosoli. A relic is affixed to a red silk ground and identified in Latin on a bi-color typeset cedula label as Ex Ossibus Beati Josephi Ambrosoli. (of the bone of the Blessed Giuseppe Ambrosoli).  On the back, under a 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 Comboni Missionaries of the Heart of Jesus. The theca is accompanied by the matching authentics document issued and signed by the Postulator General on November 20th, 2022 (the day of his Beatification). 

This item is appropriate for private and public veneration.

Blessed Giuseppe Ambrosoli M.C.C.I. (†1987) was an Italian Catholic priest and professed member of the Comboni Missionaries of the Heart of Jesus. A philanthropist and educator, he served as a doctor in Uganda, Africa. Ambrosoli studied before World War II when he once risked his life to smuggle Jewish people into Switzerland before returning home to finish his studies in medicine before commencing his ecclesial studies. He joined the Comboni missionaries and was sent to Uganda, where he became known as the "saint doctor" for his loving and compassionate treatment of all the ill people to whom he dedicated himself. He died on 27 March 1987 at the Comboni Mission in Lira after he had been diagnosed with kidney disease. His cause for canonization opened in Uganda in 1999 when he became titled as a Servant of God. He was beatified by Archbishop Luigi Bianco on 20 November 2022 at Sacred Heart of Jesus Parish Church in Kalongo, Uganda.
