1988 Documented reliquary theca with relic of St. Gaspar del Bufalo, founder of the Missionaries of the Precious Blood

Round white-metal glass-fronted reliquary theca housing the first-class ex carne  (of the flesh) relic of Saint Gaspar del Bufalo. The relic is affixed to a red silk ground and identified in Latin on a typeset cedula label as S. Gasp. a Buf. C. (Saint Gaspar del Bufalo, Confessor).  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 Missionaries of the Precious Blood Order. The relic is accompanied by the original matching authentics document issued and sealed in 1988 by the Postulator General of the Order responsible for the Causes of Canonization. 

Saint Gaspar del Bufalo(†1837), also known as Gaspare del Bufalo, was a Roman Catholic priest and the founder of the Missionaries of the Precious Blood. He worked tirelessly to re-evangelize central Italy, especially the Papal States. He was well known for his preaching eloquence, devotion to the poor (especially the Santa Galla Hospice in Rome), and work with southern Lazio's brigands. He was beatified by St. Pius X in 1904, and canonized by Pope Pius XII on June 12, 1954. His feast day is celebrated on October 21.
