2001 Documented reliquary theca with relic of the Blessed Caterina Cittadini, founder of Ursuline Sisters of St. Jerome Emiliani

Round yellow-metal glass-fronted reliquary theca housing a first-class Ex corpore (of the body) relic of the Blessed Caterina Cittadini. The relic is affixed to a red silk ground and identified in Latin on a typeset cedula label as B. Cath. Cittadini // ex corpore (of the body of the Blessed Caterina Cittadini).  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 Curia of the Diocese of Bergamo, Italy. The relic is accompanied by the original matching authentics document issued and sealed on 29th of April 2001 (the very day of her beatification) by a priest of the Diocese of Bergamo. 

Blessed Caterina Cittadini (†1857) was an Italian Roman Catholic religious from Bergamo, Italy, who established the Ursuline Sisters of Saint Jerome Emiliani. The order was dedicated to the education of girls in Bergamo and in the surrounding areas and has since expanded outside of the Italian nation. Her order came in part from her devotion to Saint Jerome Emiliani and the Blessed Mother. Cittadini's reputation increased as the decades went on due to her fame as a passionate and inspiring educator who instilled in girls both a civic and a religious education that was the basis of her educational career and her beliefs. Her beatification was celebrated on 29 April 2001 by Pope John Paul II and Her feast is celebrated on 5 of May.
