1992 Documented reliquary theca with relic of Capuchin St. Felix of Cantalice

Round glass-fronted yellow-metal reliquary theca housing the first-class ex ossibus (of the bone) relic of Saint Felix of Cantalice. The relic is affixed to a red silk ground and identified in Latin on a typeset cedula label as S. Felix Cantal.(Saint Felix of Cantalice). On the back, under the protective cap, the theca is secured with a seal of red Spanish wax bearing a faint imprint of a coat of arms of the Order of Friars Minor Capuchin. The relic is accompanied by the original matching authentics document issued on 22 January 1992 by the Postulator General of the Order.

Saint Felix of Cantalice, O.F.M. Cap. (†1587) was an Italian Capuchin friar of the 16th century. Felix is usually represented as holding in his arms the Infant Jesus because of a vision he is said to have had, when the Blessed Virgin Mary appeared to him and placed the Divine Child in his arms. Pope John Paul II observed that Felix is "shown bearing the Infant Jesus in his arms because in bearing the burdens of the needy he had carried in his arms the poor Christ himself." In 19th-century Poland, the Felician Sisters, a religious congregation of Franciscan Sisters of the Third Order Regular, was founded to care for the poor and adopted him as their patron saint. Canonized by Pope Clement XI in 1712, he was the first Capuchin friar in the history of the Order to be canonized. His feast day is celebrated on the Calendar of Saints of the Franciscan Order on May 18.
