Reservations to view Shroud of Turin reach one million
Reservations to view Shroud of Turin reach one million

.- One million people have already reserved tickets to view the Shroud of Turin, which will be on display April 10 – May 23 at the Turin Cathedral in Italy.

According to Vatican Radio, “The one millionth reservation was made on Saturday, February 13,” exactly “70 days after” the new site, www.sindone.it debuted.

“Apart from the incredible flow of reservations,” the report continued, is the prevalent use of the internet.  “Ten years ago, for the exhibition for the Jubilee Year of 2000, there were 200,000 reservations.”  Then, only 20 percent were made online.

For the 2010 Exposition of the Shroud, 93 percent of the reservations have been made through the internet.  The remaining spots were reserved via telephone.
