The objective of this visit is to enable us to dwell on the historic events of Our Lord’s passion, death and resurrection. We are accompanied in this visit by the story of St Helen, mother of the Emperor Constantine, who at 78 years old made the long pilgrimage to Jerusalem to follow in the footsteps of Our Lord’s earthly life. We can see the mute testimony to our Lord’s crucifixion: the relic of the true cross. In a particular way we can follow the events of the passion much more closely by viewing a copy of the Turin Shroud which is also displayed in the Chapel of the relics. In the Basilica we also see the example of Nennolina, a 7 year old, who had the courage to offer her sufferings to the Lord.
