2003 Documented reliquary theca with relic of St. María de las Maravillas de Jesús

Round yellow-metal glass-fronted reliquary theca housing the first-class ex ossibus  (of the bone) relic of Saint Leonard of Port Maurice. The relic is affixed to a red silk ground and identified in Latin on a typeset cedula label as S. Leonardi a P.M. (Saint Leonard of Port Maurice).  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 (the year of her canonization) by the Postulator General of the Order responsible for the Causes of Canonization. 

Saint María de las Maravillas de Jesús, OCD (†1974), known as Maravillas de Jesús, was a Spanish Discalced Carmelite. She founded several convents of her order and even set one up in India after serving a brief exile with other Carmelites due to the outbreak of the Spanish Civil War. Pope John Paul II canonized her during his apostolic visit in Madrid in 2003.
