Half a million tickets reserved to see Turin Shroud in 2010

When the Holy Shroud is put on display this Spring visitors are expected to pour into the city of Turin, Italy to catch a glimpse.  This exposition, which comes ten years after it was last shown publicly, has already led hundreds of thousands of people to reserve tickets.

The much venerated relic of Christ, the Holy Shroud, will be on exposition at the Cathedral of Turin from April 10 to May 23, 2010.  This marks the first time it will be seen by the public since it was restored in 2002, and the first time that it will be exhibited at all since the Church Jubilee Year in 2000.
