Shroud of Turin

We went to the Shroud of Turin exhibit today at St. Anne's Church in Abbotsford . I was awestruck. The shroud was presented in such a way as a replica that you felt you were looking a the actual shroud. The exhibits were informative and the speakers more so. But it was the shroud itself with its burn marks and face of Christ , hands folded with all the scourge marks and crown of thorns that held you. Science has come up with even more reasons to believe it is the actual shroud at least closing some of the gaps. Being a lover of history and particularily the history of the Shroud this was a wonderful gift, here in the middle of Lent just going into Holy Week to help us reflect on the Passion of Christ.
