The Passion of Christ In Light of the Holy Shroud of Turin
Fr. Francis Peffley
The Holy Shroud of Turin was called the greatest relic in Christendom by Pope John Paul II. In fact, the Shroud is the most studied scientific object in the entire world. Fr. Peffley presents new and detailed scientific and medical evidence for the authenticity of the Holy Shroud. This presentation brings greater clarity as to the depth of the agony of our Lord's sorrowful Passion, which he voluntarily took on for love of us.

The talk is given by a Priest who has studied a lot of the scientific research and findings of the Shroud.
The cloth is long and is the size of those commonly used at that time for covering a table...also they could tell because of the fine-ness of the linen, which is much nicer than the things usually used to bury people in at that time.
Also, along one side of it there are some kind of markings, oil stains, etc. left behind from people having eaten on this cloth. It was common at that time that the people being served would sit on just one side of the table and they would be served from the front. Something in Jewish practice made it such that food was not to be passed behind people, only in front of them. The stains are possibly from people dipping bread in oil, etc. just like today.
It is a beautiful talk, get this CD if you can! It is called
The Passion Of Christ in Light of the Holy Shroud of Turin.
