Germany: Christ’s sacred tunic to be displayed for veneration

Catholic World News - March 07, 2012

Christ’s sacred tunic, housed in a reliquary at the cathedral in Trier, will be displayed for public veneration from April 13 to May 13. Pope Benedict has named Cardinal Marc Ouellet, prefect of the Congregation for Bishops, as his special envoy to the opening ceremonies.

The event marks the 500th anniversary of the public display of the sacred tunic in 1512. Since 1512, it has been displayed on 16 occasions, most recently in 1996.
