Caterina da Bologna", and on the back in lovely hand writing in French: de habit de Ste Catherine de bologne", this indicating the relic was place in the packet in one country and they also labeled at the French convent. On the back is the red wax seal indicating the authenticity, and the packet has not been opened. The reliquary measures 1 & 1/2" by 5/8" and is in good condition, having been in our care and collection for many years after arriving from France.
