Shroud of Turin to be displayed on Holy Saturday




March 25, 2013. (Romereports.com) In honor of the Year of Faith, the Shroud of Turin will be displayed once again inside the Dome of Turin on Holy Saturday, March 30. The last time it was put on display for the public was more than three years ago.
 
However, the visit is only open to a group of 300 made up of youths and people who are sick or disabled. It will also be broadcast live.

When Benedict XVI visited the Shroud of Turin in 2010, he called it an “icon of Holy Saturday,” which is why the Archbishop of Turin decided to put it on display for the Year of Faith.
