Shroud of Turin

Posted on March 28, 2013 at 9:10 PM

Recently, a replica of the Shroud of Turin was on display in Delaware. A new scientific analysis claims the shroud dates from between 300 B.C. and A.D. 400, putting it's age squarely within the time Jesus Christ walked among us. A new book titled  “Il Mistero della Sindone” (“The Mystery of the Shroud”) has been published with the findings.

We reflect during this Holy Week, the Passion of Christ, who died on Good Friday in reparation for the sins of mankind, and rose on Easter Sunday to give new life to all who believe. Thus, while Holy Week is solemn and sorrowful, it also anticipates the joy of Easter through the recognition of God's goodness in sending His Son to die for our salvation.
