In preparation for Synod of Bishops on the youth and vocation, the pope has authorized an extraordinary exposition of the Shroud of Turin.

Young people from Piedmont will be able to see it on August 10 before beginning a pilgrimage to Rome to visits Pope Francis.

It will be a rare opportunity to see one of the most important relics of the Catholic faith, the silhouette of a man who has the same wounds that Jesus suffered during the Passion.

“These clots, these blood scabs the poor body had on its skin, are diluted, and the estimated time to create this phenomenon agrees with what we see on the Shroud: between 36 and 40 hours, the exact amount of time the Body of Christ spent in the sepulchre.”

The Holy Shroud is kept in a chapel at the cathedral of Turin and only shown under extraordinary circumstances. It will be years before it can be viewed again.
