2003 Documented reliquary theca with relics of a Polish WW2 Martyr Blessed Alfons Maria Mazurek (of the Holy Spirit)

Round yellow-metal glass-fronted reliquary theca housing the first-class ex ossibus  (of the bone) relic of the Blessed Alfons Maria Mazurek. The relic is affixed to a red silk ground and identified in Latin on a typeset cedula label as B. Alfonsi Mariae Mazurek Martyr (the Blessed Alfons Maria Mazurek, Martyr).  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 Discalced Carmelite Order. The relic is accompanied by the original matching authentics document issued and sealed in 2003 by the Postulator General of the Order responsible for the Causes of Canonization. 

Blessed Alfons Maria Mazurek, also known as Alfons Maria of the Holy Spirit (†1944) was a Polish Discalced Carmelite friar and priest venerated as one of the 108 Martyrs of World War II. Mazurek was a professor and rector of the Carmelite seminary and director of the tertiaries at the monastery in Wadowice. In 1936, he became the first visitor of the Carmelite communities in Poland and wrote new statutes for the Order. He prepared for publication a breviary for Carmelite tertiaries and retreat texts written by the Carmelite Fr. Marcin Rubczyński. Separated from the friars and residents of Czerna, who had been forced to work on the town's fortifications, Mazurek was shot by an SS soldier on August 28, 1944. He was beatified by John Paul II on June 13, 1999 along with a group of other Polish martyrs of the Second World War. The relics of Blessed Alfonso are kept in the church of the Discalced Carmelites in Wadowice.
