Important 1st Class Reliquary with Relics of The Blessed Virgin Mary, Saint Anne, Mother of Mary, Agnus Dei and Other

Any relic that has anything to do with The Holy Family is automatically a first class relic.

A beautiful large reliquary which is set into a papier mache housing. It is fully sealed into its housing so I cannot see whether there is a wax seal on the rear but I assume there is.

To be able to hold a reliquary which has a relic of Our Holy Mother The Blessed Virgin Mary is exceptional. To also have a relic of her mother Saint Anne is extremely rare.

There is another Saint represented but due to the age of the reliquary it is very difficult to read although it is possible to read the final part which suggest to me that it is a relic of Saint Mark of Galilee.

In addition the centre has a piece of a Paschal candle or 'Agnus Dei'. One object of the Church that is among the oldest known sacramentals is the “Agnus Dei” disc. This is a disc of wax with the figure of a lamb impressed upon it. Historically these discs were worn around the neck and were made from the previous year’s Paschal candle. The sacred wax was a constant reminder of Christ’s Easter victory.

This piece is in the centre of the reliquary and has the number 33 on it. The number 33 has significant meaning in Christianity and the Bible. This is considered to be the age of Jesus Christ, and is a representation of God's promises.

This beautiful reliquary measures 6.6 centimetres in diameter and is 2 centimetres deep.
