Cloth of Jesus in Trier, Germany

The cloth believed to be Jesus' seamless garment worn shortly before or during his crucification will be on display in Germany's oldest city, Trier from April 13th until May 13th. It is believed that this garment was brought to Trier (then an important Roman city) in the fourth century. It was built into the alter of a Trier Cathedral, and very rarely is it on display. It was only on display three separate times between 1900 and 1996. When it is on display it is a huge pilgrimage for Catholics.

Did I mention Trier is only 30 minutes away? Yes, we will be going to see it. We will probably take a train as I am assuming parking will be nearly impossible during those 4 weeks.
