Looking for a Reliquary
« on: December 07, 2017, 04:24:55 PM »

I am a young Catholic from Canada. Recently, a good friend of mine gave me a First Class Relic of St. Pius X, with the authentic documentation and everything. I showed my priest and he confirmed that it is genuine. I have been trying to find a reliquary to place it in, but I have had no luck at all. Either it does not fit in the reliquary, or the price and shipping is too high.

Does anyone have a reliquary that they are willing to sell at an affordable price?

Also, it should be noted that I live in Canada.

Have you thought about maybe getting a shadow box so you could display both items at the same time?  Hobby Lobby has some very nice ones and they will help you getting it set up the way you want.  Just a thought.

did someone say relics?!

Don't wanna brag, but a relic custodian friend gave me a 2nd-class relic of St. Padre Pio some aeons back, & I have been also been hunting for a little reliquary box thing to display in ... But I'm broke. Dymphna, will your husband be able to assist?

Thank you for the suggestion. I prefer a reliquary though, because I also want to bring it to mass to be used at the altar.
