In this unusual Truth is the whole message of the Shroud of Turin: Mercy for those who ask, for those who seek, and who find in a simple linen cloth that proof of the Mystery of Mysteries.
Many times when we discuss the scientific, medical and spiritual facts that surround the Shroud of Turin as the authentic burial cloth of Jesus Christ, we cover the same ground over and over again.
That is because the skeptics and the media, their most willing ally, have so obscured the Truth of the Shroud that the basics have to be reiterated ad infinitum just to debunk the debunkers.
No, it's not a "painting." No, Leonardo da Vinci couldn't possibly have created the Image because he wasn't born yet when the Shroud was documented to be in Europe in 1355. No, the carbon-dating test is not correct, etc., etc.
So in honor of our God's great Gift to us in documenting His Passion, Death and Resurrection on this holy cloth, we thought we would discuss, with a few digs at the skeptics, some of the more unusual Truths about the Shroud, many of which are never publicized since the basics take so much focus away from them.
Here, then, are 13 unusual Truths (and there are many more) about the world's greatest enigma, the most controversial relic of all time.
