2004 Documented reliquary theca with relic of Blessed Matilde of the Sacred Heart, foundress of the congregation of the Hijas de María Madre de la Iglesia

Round white-metal glass-fronted reliquary theca housing a first-class Ex ossibus (of the bone) relic of the Blessed Matilde of the Sacred Heart. The relic is affixed to a red silk ground and identified in Latin on a typeset cedula label as Ex oss. B. Matildis // Téllez Robles(of the bone of the Blessed Matilde Téllez Robles).  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 Order of the Most Holy Trinity and of the Captives (The Trinitarians). The relic is accompanied by the original matching authentics document issued and sealed on 21 March 2004 (the very day of her beatification) by the Postulator General of the Order responsible for the Causes of Canonization. 

Blessed Matilde of the Sacred Heart (†1902) (born Matilde Téllez Robles) was a Spanish nun and the foundress of the congregation of the Hijas de María Madre de la Iglesia. She was an active participant in her parish during her adolescence and was part of several faith-related organizations until her desire for the religious life led her to establish a congregation dedicated to both the care of the poor and ill and the education of children. Her congregation's foundation was first mired in a lack of membership, though the number increased as houses were established and their works grew. She was beatified by Pope John Paul II on 21 March 2004 and her feast day is celebrated on 30 May.
