From the web pages of WellBeing.com.au:
While we pride ourselves on being rational beings who can understand the way the world works, it is mysteries that really fire our imaginations and lay hands on our souls. Where facts may bolster feelings of control it is mysteries that make us feel alive. The power of mystery is evidenced in how we maintain interest in things like the Loch Ness Monster, the Bermuda Triangle, the shroud of Turin, the search for Kardashian talent, and Donald Trump’s hair.
It was a great quotation until we got to the examples.
There have been a series of comments of a similar vein. I think it’s fair to say that the Shroud community understands that the carbon dating tests were unreliable, but that for too many in the community at large they still are a convenient way to dodge the implications of the authenticity of the Shroud.
Humanity has never needed Christ more than it does today. Selfishness has driven us to the brink of processes that will inevitably lead to our extinction – an Apocalypse of Selfishness.
We have spent enough time in the convent/monastery cloister. It’s time to go out into the world.
What are the implications of the Shroud:
Christ has died, Christ has risen and Christ [through science] has come again.
With one modification, that’s the traditional declaration of Christian faith.
