Pope John Paul II and the Veil of Veronica at St. Peter's

Saverio Gaeta, journalist and author of L'Altra Sindone, in his talk entitled "Did the Veronica disappear in 1527" given at the 2006 Chieti Conference on the Holy Face had this interesting statement:
"and here I can reveal that John Paul II also, prior to the Great Jubilee of 2000, had wished to see the picture preserved in the Vatican. He asked that it be brought to his own apartment, he looked at it attentively, and after having become personally aware of the lack of any image, had it brought back to the pillar of the Veronica, without taking any further initiative".
