Promotion of the New Evangelization.
The conference will deliver a programme
presenting the shroud of Turin, which is believed to be the burial cloth of Jesus
Christ, as a sign of faith that speaks to contemporary society.
is this, the shroud is a sign, a sign that speaks to contemporary man and so I think
in this year of faith this Holy Shroud has something to tell us in a very graphical
view,” says Father Rafael Pascual LC, Director of the Science and Faith Institute
at the Regina Apostolorum.
He told Lydia O’Kane that the face Jesus left us
is one of suffering but also of love and donation. Listen
