When Prof Mathew M Schmalz wrote, “But the image on the Shroud, like the entire Shroud itself, is simultaneously present while remaining just out of reach,” he fully expresses the most perceptive truth about the shroud. We cannot deny the image and we cannot explain it.
If we ever figure out how the image was formed we have proven it was faked by ways unimaginable or we have reverse engineered God’s ways. I’m betting the mystery will last forever.
