This is a group of nine very small folded paper reliquary for beloved Saint Catherine of Bologna which we acquired in the original storage box from a convent in France. Each of the tiny packets are unlabeled, we are showing a photo of their storage box for educational purposes (not included in the sale), and it is labeled in lovely script in French "Cendres Ste Catherine de Bologne, authentique". Cendres loosely translates as ashes. We also haave shown a photo of a single packet and each tiny packet measures 3/4" by 3/8" and none of them are sealed as these would have been intended to be placed in more permanent reliquaries at some time. This listing is for a group of small packets, of which we have several. If you can not afford the group but would like a single packet, please contact us for that option.. Catherine was a Poor Clare, considered a miracle worker, and her body was found incorrupt
