The recently exhumed body of Padre Pio, the mystic monk who died in 1968, and one of the world's most popular saints who was said to have borne the wounds of the crucified Christ, is due to be put on display in a glass coffin on Thursday. Some 750,000 people have made reservations to view the preserved and reconstructed body over the next eight months. REUTERS/Alessandro Bianchi (ITALY)
