Innovative ReliquariesFinding suitable and reasonably priced reliquaries to house relics is becoming inceasingly difficult. This is especially true when the
thecas or relics are of such size that standard reliquaries are not large enough to house them. Sometimes a person needs to be a bit
creative and think outside the box, so to speak. One can frequently find antique wooden clock cases on eBay, garage sales or flea markets. Most no longer work and, in fact, many have had the
mechanisms removed from them. The price is usually quite low. I have paid as little as $5.00 to a high of about $50.00 for more ornate cases. With a bit of imagination and a little creative ability
these can be turned into very nice looking shrines to house relics.
Generally, I create a background of foam board covered with red felt on which I attach the thecas or photos. You may have another preference. As I said, be creative and use you imagination.
Three reliquaries holding relics of Cristero martyrs from Mexico. These house relics of Bl. Jose Sanchez del Rio (ex ossibus),
Bl. Miguel Pro (ex capsa) and St. Pedro Maldonado (ex tela embuta sanguine).
