  • The winding sheet wrapped around the body of a crucified man, corresponding in every way to the Gospel accounts of Jesus, has long been venerated by Christians. During the exposition of the Holy Shroud in Turin in 2010, Pope Benedict gave a breathtaking meditation on its significance and meaning. This icon of blood paints the mystery of true and merciful love and of the liberation essential for our epoch that is increasingly drawn to darkness and loneliness.
