Pope Francis: No people is criminal and no religion is terrorist

February 17, 2017. Pope Francis has sent an important message to the Meetings of Popular Movements that is taking place in Modesto (California). The pope denounces the "moral blindness of this indifference”: "under the guise of what is politically correct or ideologically fashionable, one looks at those who suffer without touching them. But they are televised live; they are talked about in euphemisms and with apparent tolerance, but nothing is done systematically to heal the social wounds or to confront the structures that leave so many brothers and sisters by the wayside”.

Turin will display the Holy Shroud starting April 10th

2010-02-17

The Holy Shroud, has always been shrouded in mystery and questions that science has failed to respond.

Msgr. Giuseppe Ghiberti
President, Diocesan Synod of Turin
“The problem of natural science practically comes down to two main principals: the date of the shroud with the image and how it’s the image has taken shape.”

Some scientists believed questions raised by the Shroud were answered carbon-14 testing was conducted on a piece of the cloth. The analysis concluded the canvas dated back to the fourteenth century. However, other scientists noted that the material was too impaired to draw any reliable conclusions and that the fragment analyzed was composed of several fabrics.

So the Shroud’s mystery is still up for debate and the church has repeatedly indicated that scientists have the last word on the veracity of the material. Something echoed by during John Paul II first encounter with the Shroud in 1998. The late pontiff said the Shroud helps people get an idea of Jesus suffering before and during the Crucifixion.

Msgr. Giuseppe Ghiberti
President, Diocesan Synod of Turin
“The Synod isn’t a motive to study Jesus, because this image needs to be studied for what it is. An image may be a claim and the sign of a fact. That fact is what appeals to us.”

The exhibition runs from April 10th to May 23rd at the diocese of Turin in Italy. Meanwhile other public and private institutions have organized various initiatives like an exhibit on the image of Jesus Christ, another on the Shroud and conferences.

A unique experience that hasn’t taken place for nearly a decade and there’s no telling when or if it ever will in the future.
