In our January update in an article titled, Special Shroud Exhibition Approved by Pope Francis, we announced that Pope Francis approved the suggestion by Archbishop Cesare Nosiglia, the Archbishop of Turin, to allow a special exhibition of the Shroud exclusively for the pilgrimage of young people in August 2018.Here is the Update Table of Contents: The above (never-before published) photograph was taken at the press conference held on Saturday, October 14, 1978, the morning after STURP ended their historic scientific examination of the Shroud and the day the cloth was returned to its reliquary.I think the expressions on everyone's faces indicate there was a feeling of satisfaction and accomplishment amongst all those involved. Luigi Gonella was the Scientific Advisor to the Archbishop of Turin in 1978 and still held that position ten years later, during the radiocarbon dating of the Shroud.The reappropriation of cultural heritage and natural beauties of our land requires a different way of approaching the reality that surrounds us, a way that pilgrimage on foot allows and propitiates."The hope is that the paths of next summer can help our young people" descend to Capernaum "(Jn 2.12), in the daily life of a renewed life." The second link the CIS provided is to another Italian language website specifically about the Pilgrimage titled, L'Amore lascia il Segno (Love Leaves the Sign).As you scroll down through the page, you can review the items that were added this year in chronological order.You should find this an excellent way to sample the evolving content of this website.As I mentioned in our last update, this year marks the 40th anniversary of the first ever in-depth scientific examination of the Shroud of Turin by the Shroud of Turin Research Project (STURP) on October 8-13, 1978.In commemoration of that historic event, we will be celebrating the anniversary year with some special materials in each of our regular updates and culminating with a Special STURP Update on October 8, 2018, 40 years to the day that we began our examination of the Shroud in 1978.The first of these is to a Press Conference website titled, "10 Paths for the Pilgrimage of Young People to the Shroud."
