From a posting in Unsolved Mystery. The quotation is by the late Fr. Albert R. ‘Kim’ Dreisbach, Jr., an Episcopal priest who became a wonderful friend as we both studied the shroud.
When I first began to study the Shroud of Turin, I was convinced it was a crock and it would take me probably less than two hours to put away this pious fraud. After all, anyone with an I.Q. 100 or over knows that all relics by definition are frauds. But I must admit, here I am some 17 years later, I who came to scoff, have stayed to pray. My own personal belief is the shroud is probably authentic.
As I read the quotation above, I could literally hear his voice resonate in my mind.This man I feel had an uncanny insight and wisdom that I cannot explain but surely feel.I most definately, will miss reading anymore from Fr.Dreisbach.
If anyone missed my comment several blogs back, I urge anyone to read the paper titled; Lazarus and Jesus, by Fr Dreisbach.It can be found at Shroud.com.
The big mistake from M. Dreisbach was to think that all relics are false ! It’s not true at all… If there is false relics, then it is sure that there is true and authentic relics. There would be no false relics instead ! It’s pure logic. I’m glad that his study of the Shroud made him change his mind because his starting postulate was completely wrong…
