Denver, Colo., Mar 10, 2013 / 04:01 pm (CNA/EWTN News).- Benedict XVI’s decision to allow a TV broadcast of the Shroud of Turin on March 30, Holy Saturday, has been lauded by experts for highlighting the link between the Shroud and death of Christ.
“Pope Benedict XVI, when he visited the shroud on pilgrimage in 2010, spoke about the Shroud in terms of Holy Saturday,” John Jackson, co-founder of the Turin Shroud Center of Colorado, told CNA March 7.
“From that vantage point, that all his remarks were made relative to Holy Saturday, it is fitting that the broadcast happens on Holy Saturday.”
This story still doesn’t have any mainstream press traction.
