Exposition of Shroud begins in Turin

Catholic World News - April 09, 2010

A public exposition of the Shroud of Turin will begin on Saturday, April 10, in that city's cathedral. The exposition will continue until 23.

The Shroud, believed to be the burial cloth of Jesus Christ, will be on display daily in the cathedral. Pilgrims will be admitted to reverence the Shroud without charge, but reservations are required in order to control the flow of traffic. (Reservations can be made online at the official site of the Turin exposition.) Visitors to the cathedral who do not have reservations will be able to see the Shroud only from a distance.

Pope Benedict XVI will visit Turin to venerate the Shroud on May 2.
