SOLD OUT - Italy Pilgrimage with Fr. Leo and Gus Lloyd - Shroud of TurinTurin
June 24, 2015
The trip will be 12 days of culinary and faith-filled adventures, truly qualifying all those who go to be Faithful Foodies. But this is truly a once in a lifetime journey as we will be traveling to The EXPO Milano 2015 in Milan, the largest worldwide event ever organized on the theme of food!
Day 4 - After breakfast, we travel to Turin see Duomo di San Giovanni and the Holy Shroud. We celebrate Mass in the Cathedral. The Archdiocese of Turin, custodian of the Shroud of Turin, has announced that the shroud, venerated by many as the burial cloth of Christ, will be on public display April 19 – June 24, 2015. Pope Francis is scheduled to visit Turin as well. The public display will coincide with the 200th anniversary of the birth of Saint John Bosco, the founder of the Salesians. “The Greatest Love.” We also see the tomb of Blessed Pier Giorgio Frassati. A Turin native, fun-loving, avid athlete, devout Catholic, and benefactor of the poor called the “Saint for Youth of the Third Millennium”, he was beatified by John Paul II in 1990. So revered is the Blessed Frassati, his relics were carried to World Youth Day in Spain in 2011 and again to World Youth day in Brazil in 2013. We see Mole Antonelliana, the symbol of Turin, Piazza Castello, and visit Basilica di Superga, dedicated to the Blessed Mother. Not to be missed in Turin is the “Bicirin”, a warm drink combining layers of coffee, chocolate, and cream. Tonight dinner is on your own at Eatily, a food emporium where one can see the slow food movement at its best. The Slow Food movement began in Turin as a reaction to fast food and got its start in protest to the opening of a McDonald’s near the Spanish Steps in Rome. Here we discover the best food and wine from all over Italy. Overnight in the Turin area. (B.)
