Join Deacon Tom & Mary Jane Fox as they take an in-depth look at the Shroud of Turin, a 14-foot by 4-foot linen cloth venerated by millions of Christians, because it is believed to be the actual burial cloth of Jesus Christ.
Considered one of the most sacred religious icons on Earth, the Shroud is the most studied, ancient cloth in history and in the world.
During this program, you will learn why the Shroud is so intensely debated, studied, and venerated. Other questions to be discussed:
- Who is the man, whose image is imprinted on the Shroud?
- What can we learn from the Shroud today?
Jewel for the Journey:
This face has eyes that are closed, it is the face of one who is dead, and yet mysteriously he is watching us, and in silence he speaks to us.
How is this possible?… It is because the Man of the Shroud invites us to contemplate Jesus of Nazareth.
This image, impressed upon the cloth, speaks to our heart and moves us to climb the hill of Calvary, to look upon the wood of the Cross, and to immerse ourselves in the eloquent silence of love.
– Pope Francis in Turin, Italy (2015)
