Wonderful old hand made fabric reliquary labeled for Blessed Marie of the Incarnation (Ursuline), this made before she achieved her status as a Saint. Saint Marie of the Incarnation, O.S.U. (28 October 1599 – 30 April 1672) was an Ursuline nun of the French order. As part of a group of nuns sent to New France to establish the Ursuline Order, Marie was crucial in the spread of Catholicism in New France. Moreover, she has been credited with founding the first girls’ school in the New World. Due to her work, the Catholic Church declared her a saint, and the Anglican Church of Canada celebrates her with a feast day. A rare item to find, this quite lovely too with sequins on the red faille fabric heart and an official red seal attached at the top. It measures 2.25" tall and 2.25" wide and in very good condition.
