2.1 million pilgrims venerated Shroud

Catholic World News - May 25, 2010

Over 2.1 million pilgrims, including Pope Benedict XVI, venerated the Shroud of Turin when it was on display in Turin’s cathedral between April 10 and May 23.

“I had the clear perception that the Lord was speaking to the hearts of the pilgrims who came before the shroud seeking answers,” said Cardinal Severino Poletto. The shroud “gives us the chance to offer faith in a time of confusion and spiritual fog, reconciling in the word of God.”
