New Evidence for the Shroud

by Steve Ray on July 30, 2009

New evidence supports authenticity of Shroud of Turin
http://www.catholicculture.org/news/headlines/index.cfm?storyid=3647
In new study of the Shroud of Turin has discovered traces of writing in Aramaic, judged by experts to be more than 1800 years old. The visible letters appear to portions of the phrase “king of the Jews”– thereby strongly supporting the belief that the fabric is the burial cloth of Jesus Christ.

I have a pilgrimage going to see the Shroud in May 2010 in Turin (also Assisi, Rome, etc.) If you are interested in joining us click here. The seats are filling up very fast!
