And the soldiers wove a crown out of thorns
and placed it on his head. Jn 19:2
"On the occasion of the opening of the Year of Saint-Louis, a distant echo of the procession which saw the king welcome, barefoot, the Holy Crown of thorns and the nails of the Cross- we carry and venerate this relic in the streets of Paris. From Notre-Dame to Sainte-Chapelle, which was built to house the [Passion] relics and for the first time in several centuries, a public Mass will be celebrated in this Chapel with the veneration of the Crown; the people turn their eyes towards Christ and the gift He gave to the world to save it."
