FILE -- In this file photo taken on April 10, 2010, the faded image of a bearded man appears on a detail of The Holy Shroud, a 14 foot-long linen revered by some as the burial cloth of Jesus, at the Turin cathedral, Italy.

Pope Francis said Wednesday, Nov. 5, 2014, he will go to that northern Italian city June 21 to view that 4.3-meter-long (14-foot) cloth, which is kept in a climate-controlled case in Turin's cathedral. As during the last display in 2010, reservations are required for the April 19-June 24 viewing but there is no charge. (AP Photo/Luca Bruno) (The Associated Press)
