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. 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 single small packet, of which we have several. In this shop we also have an other option listing to purchase a group of nine packets still tied as they came to us from the Sisters. Catherine was a Poor Clare, considered a miracle worker, and her body was found incorrupt.
