Benedict was much less equivocal on Sunday when he prayed in front of the cloth at St. John the Baptist Cathedral in Turin, Italy, saying afterwards in a “meditation” that it was "an icon written in blood; the blood of a man who was whipped, crowned with thorns, crucified, and injured on his right side."
New research claims to show authenticity In November, a researcher in the Vatican’s secret archives claimed that using computer enhancement she found the words “Jesus Nazarene” on the shroud. Historian Barbara Frale said computer analysis of photographs of the shroud revealed the words written extremely faint in Greek, Aramaic, and Latin.

pardon me for being a doubting Thomas
but I wonder how he came to this
conclusion. What proof does he have??
Also, if it is truly the shroud of Jesus
why can't they take DNA samples from it
and make a clone ???
Or has anybody else thought of this ???
