Getting to know the Holy Shroud with an app

2015-06-13

The Holy Shroud remains an inexplicable mystery to this day, and it continues to draw international attention. Pope Francis will visit Turin to pray in front of the Shroud on June 21st. For anyone who wants to learn about the mysteries of the Shroud, there's now an app to help. 

The app contains images and little known facts. For example, it has information about the man who brought the Shroud to Turin. In another part,  the sections of the Shroud where Jesus' face appear are examined.

The articles and documents in the app give the user a deep understanding of the drama behind the Shroud. A user can discover the time and place where it was discovered, with visual aids built into the application.

It contains information about the ancient Holy Land, Jewish culture in the first century, and the Passion and Resurrection of Christ.

The app is free and is available in English and Spanish. It can be used on iOS or Android, for smartphones and tablets.
