Learn the Truth About the Shroud of Turin
A woman in my parish told me about a terrific website dedicated to correct information about the Shroud of Turin:
Shroud of Turin Education and Research Association, Inc. (STERA, Inc.) http://shroud.com/
The secular press seems to be a magnet for misinformation and attacks on the Shroud of Turin, but this STERA website gives us all complete and correct information.
Of course, the main issue is not to debate science experiments per sec, but to reflect on the great Paschal Mystery of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. The image in the Shroud is of a man beaten and crucified:
"My Lord and My God!" -- Saint Thomas in the Gospel of John
"But he was wounded for our transgressions; he was crushed for our iniquities; upon him was the chastisement that brought us peace, and with his stripes we are healed." -- Isaiah 53:5
