News came from Valencia, Spain, on May 1st that could very much help unravel one of the Church’s greatest mysteries: Is the man shown on the Shroud of Turin really Jesus Christ?

The Catholic Church is one step closer to making the faith truly universal, understandable in every tongue and pool of thought.
