Richard Orareo, Shroud of Turin collector to open national shrine in Wabash, Indiana

imageKevin Kilbane of the Fort Wayne, Indiana paper, The News-Sentinel has written an interesting article about shroud researcher Richard Orareo and his forthcoming museum in Wabash, a city about an hour south of Fort Wayne:

You soon can explore the mystery more deeply when what reportedly is the world’s third-largest collection of Shroud-related items goes on display at the new National Shrine of the Holy Shroud in Wabash, about an hour southwest of Fort Wayne.

“The Shroud is the single-most studied artifact in the history of humanity,” said Richard Orareo, who developed the collection over more than 40 years of searching. He hopes to open the shrine in May.

I look forward to visiting the museum and visiting Richard, with whom I have corresponded and had conversations in the past.

  1. Hi Dan and Richard! I have a few things to donate to Richard Orareo’s New Museum, including a snippet of the silk that once wrapped the Holy Shroud of Turin!

    I am also resolving to persuade the Redemptorists to move their materials about the Holy Shroud, currently locked up in a warehouse in Three Rivers, Massachusetts – to Richard’s museum as well!
