(Vatican Radio) As part of the Year of Faith a conference gets underway here in Rome
(Friday) tomorrow entitled “The Shroud and the New Evangelization. The two day event
is being sponsored by the Pontifical Regina Apostolorum and will feature speakers
including Archbishop Rino Fisichella, President of the Pontifical Council for the
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.
“The message 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
