ChristAboveMe.com is dedicated to putting The Father, The Son, and The Holy Spirit first.
And every creature which is in heaven and on the earth and under the earth, and such as are in the sea, and all that are in them, I heard all saying: To him that sitteth on the throne and to the Lamb, benediction and honour and glory and power, for ever and ever. (From The Apocalypse of St. John the Evangelist, 5:13)
The picture at the top of most ChristAboveMe.com pages is of Our Lord’s holy Face from a negative of the Shroud of Turin. The inside (but not the outside) of the holy Shroud is like a photographic negative, produced partly by UV light emanating from the body of Jesus at His Resurrection, and partly by other types of radiation, which darkened the surface of some of the fine strands on the inside of the burial linen. When you take and develop a negative of a negative, you get a positive image, no need to project light through the negative to obtain a positive. According to GoodShepard Film Productions (links below) the image on the holy Shroud also has properties of an x-ray, and of a hologram.
The miracle of Resurrection produced on a shroud an enduring image so scientifically advanced that today's science cannot duplicate it. The same miracle transformed the dead Body of Jesus into a living and immortal one. By this multi-faceted miracle, Jesus defeated death; His life continues beyond death, and so will the lives of His followers.
Many see the holy Shroud as an artifact of the death of Jesus, and associate it with the gloom thereof. But it is actually a physical testament to His Resurrection, and to the defeat of death. It is not like symbols that men make of the Resurrection. It is neither smiling, nor pastel, nor bright. The image on the holy Shroud is a God-made Testament; its first impression is not its most significant one.
The most fascinating scientific theorem on the holy Shroud that I have found is Robert A. Rucker’s Neutron Absorption Hypothesis Part 1, Part 2 and Part 3. Rucker’s work very nicely explicates why initial C14 dating indicates that the holy Shroud is from the 13th to 14th Centuries, when it is actually from the First Century.
For an excellent summary of other studies of the holy Shroud, besides those of Rucker, get the CD or MP3 by the Rev. Francis Peffley, from Lighthouse Catholic Publications.
