Young People Praying before the Holy Shroud: A Sign of Hope
A visit to Holy Shroud will be an excellent stage for young people on pilgrimage in Rome
The subalpine dioceses are promoting a pilgrimage to Rome for young people. The program, scheduled for 9 August, for young people from 16 to 30, from the 17 dioceses of Piedmont and Valle d'Aosta will begin in Reggia di Venaria. From there, they will go to Turin, where they will go to the Cathedral, on the next day, to pray before the Holy Shroud.
“The journey to Rome—explains Cesare Nosiglia, Archbishop of Turin and papal custodian of the Shroud—is a sign of hope as well as a sign of the continuity of faith and of the devotion to the Holy Shroud, the imprint of the crucified and risen Jesus.”
Venerating the “Holy Shroud” will be possible only for the young people and their accompaniers participating in the journey which will end in Rome, on 11 and 12 August, with an encounter with Pope Francis. This is an initiative in view of the Synod of Bishops on the world of young people, scheduled to be held in October 2018.
