Pope Francis prays in silence in front of the Holy Shroud

2015-06-22

Pope Francis visited Turin to pray in front of the Holy Shroud. He was welcomed to the cathedral with strong applause.

There was silence as Pope Francis prayed for several minutes in front of the relic, which is said to have covered Jesus' dead body.

When he finished praying, the Pope reached out and touched the frame that holds the Shroud.

Later, still inside the cathedral, he visited the tomb of Pier Giorgio Frassati, who is one of the patrons of World Youth Day. He then met with family members of the young man who was beatified by Pope John Paul II in 1990.

The Catholic Church does not have an official position on the authenticity of the Holy Shroud. Still, it is one of the most highly valued relics and many people have visited it, including Pope Benedict XVI
