Reliquary theca with relics of St. Teresa of Ávila (St. Teresa of Jesus), Patron of Bodily Ills

Oval silver glass-fronted reliquary theca housing precious first-class ex costa relics of Saint Teresa of Ávila. Precious relic is affixed to a gilt paper ray burst surrounded by gilt silver wire ornamentation. The relic is identified on a fancy manuscript paper cedula label as Ex Costa S. Teresiae de Jusu / Virg. Hispan. (of the rib of St. Teresa of Jesus, Virgin of Spain). On the back, the theca is secured with a preserved seal of red Spanish wax bearing an imprint of a coat of arms of an unidentified Roman Catholic Bishop.

Saint Teresa of Ávila, also called Saint Teresa of Jesus († 1582), was a prominent Spanish mystic, Carmelite nun, author during the Counter-Reformation, and theologian of contemplative life through mental prayer. She was a reformer of the Carmelite Order and is considered to be, along with John of the Cross, a founder of the Discalced Carmelites. She was canonized in 1622 by Pope Gregory XV, and in 1970 was named a Doctor of the Church by Pope Paul VI. She is a Holy Patron of bodily ills; headaches; chess; loss of parents; people in need of grace; people in religious orders; people ridiculed for their piety; sick people; and sickness.
