Rare to find pocket reliquary for beloved Saint Margaret Mary Alacoque. It is a heart shape, hand sewn in stripe fabric and measures 1" tall. The last photo shows the box in which our group of these were stored in the convent in France, labeled "Petits cours renfermant des reliques de la Bse Marguerite Marie Alacoque". This translates as a small heart containing relics of Blessed Margaret Mary Alacoque. As she is addressed as "Bse" for Blessed, this heart was prepared before her canonization as a Saint. Small old stains on this heart, probably wine. Box not included.
