New Study on Shroud of Turin Leaves No Doubt And Concludes The Image To Be Genuine

By Walid Shoebat

Analysis of blood stains on Turin Shroud reveals ‘severe polytrauma’ and a ‘violent death’ the new study, in the science journal Plos One revealed. Last week’s conclusions by researchers, professors and scientists now leaves less doubt on the authenticity of the Shroud of Turin since the blood stains are now considered real.

“The presence of these biological nanoparticles found during our experiments points to a violent death for the man wrapped in the Turin shroud” study of the iron particles on the cloth uncovered creatine nanoparticles bonded with 2 nanometre by 6 nanometre ferrihydrate structures.

“The kind, size and distribution of the iron oxide nanoparticles cannot be dye for painting but are ferrihydrate cores of ferritin,” the report said. That type of iron nanoparticle, the report said, comes from humans after “severe polytrauma.” The usual polytrauma that produces this kind of nanoparticle is torture which fits the description of a crucifixion as one of the most painful ways for any human to die, particularly as it can take days.

“This is not a situation typical of the blood serum of a healthy human organism. High levels of creatinine in the blood are observed in the case of strong trauma,” the report said. Creatine nanoparticles bonded in this way are usually produced when muscle cells are destroyed and release their contents into blood.

“The presence of these biological nanoparticles found during our experiments points to a violent death for the man wrapped in the Turin shroud,” the report said.

Those iron particles, the report said, “cannot be impressed on the TS by using ancient dye pigments, as they have bigger sizes and tend to aggregate, and it is highly unlikely that the eventual ancient artist would have painted a fake by using the hematic serum of someone after a heavy polytrauma.”

But all this new research simply confirms another link since this is exactly the case when one eucharistic miracle that took place in Lanciano, Italy roughly 1,300 years ago, the Body and Blood from that miracle are still preserved and another in Buenos Aires, Argentina from 1996 when three years later Dr. Ricardo Castañón, a Bolivian neurophysiologist, was called in to have samples from the Host examined in a laboratory environment.

That research concluded that the Eucharist transformed into heart substance of a tortured man. Dr. Frederick Zugibe, an esteemed cardiologist and forensic pathologist at Columbia University in New York tested the samples he was given and said the person whose heart it came from must have been tortured. Further, Dr. Zugibe was reportedly amazed that when he studied the samples, they were pulsating like a living, beating heart. Dr. Castañón first came across the miracle in 1999, he was an atheist and today, he’s a Catholic.

In the Basilica of San Francesco in Siena, Italy, 223 consecrated hosts have remained miraculously fresh and intact for nearly 300 years.

The miracle happened on 14 August 1730. The oldest written memory of the event was drafted the same year and signed by a certain Macchi. Thieves infiltrated the basilica, says the report,  and stole the tabernacle containing 351 consecrated wafers. Three days later, all 351 hosts appeared in the alms box of the sanctuary of St. Mary of Provenzano, where they had been taken. They were mixed with the accumulated dust in the bottom of the chest powder.

The people ran to commemorate the recovery of the holy wafers, which were carried back in procession to the Basilica of San Francisco. They were then dusted and venerated in reparation.

Over the years, the hosts showed no sign of corruption or decay. On April 14, 1780, the Superior General of the Franciscan Order, Father Carlo Vipera, consumed one of the hosts and found that was fresh and uncorrupted. As some of them had been distributed in previous years, the Superior then ordered the remaining 230 to be saved and enshrined, and never distributed.

Hoping to further test the inexplicable phenomenon, in 1789 the Archbishop of Siena, D. Tibério Borghese, kept some unconsecrated hosts in a box under similar conditions of the consecrated hosts. After ten years, a committee of scientists to study specially chosen case opened the box and found only worms and rotted fragments. Meanwhile, the consecrated hosts have maintained their integrity, against all physical and biological laws.

In 1850 a similar test was made, with the same result: “The sacred articles are still fresh, intact, physically uncorrupted, chemically pure and show no beginning of corruption.”

Perhaps the most impressive verification took place in 1914, when Pope St. Pius X authorized a test that involved experts in food science, hygiene, chemistry and pharmaceuticals. The scientists concluded that the hosts were not prepared in any special way and had been stored in common conditions of humidity and light which should have caused them to deteriorate naturally. However, they were in such good condition and quite consumable, 184 years after their recovery.

Siro Grimaldi, a professor at the University of Siena and director of the Municipal Chemical Laboratory, was the chief scientist of the commission of 1914. He wrote a book with details precious about the miracle, entitled One scienziato Adora . In 1914 he declared that “grain flour is the best breeding ground for microorganisms, animal and plant pests, and lactic fermentation. Siena particles are in perfect condition, against the physical and chemical laws, despite all unfavorable conditions in which they were found and preserved.”

In 1922, 1950 and 1951, new analyses were undertaken, all with the same result.

During a pastoral visit to the city of Siena, 14 September 1980, and John Paul said II of the prodigious hosts: “it’s the Presence.” Citizens of Siena perform numerous acts in honor of Holy Communion wafers . Among them, the homage of the Contradas, and the gift offered by the children making their First Communion, the solemn procession on the feast of Corpus Christi, and Eucharistic adoration on the 17th of each month, in memory of the recovery that took place on August 17, 1730.

  • This line was very intriguing:

    “After ten years, a committee of scientists to study specially chosen case opened the box and found only worms and rotted fragments.”

    This instantly recalled to mind God’s instructions regarding the manna in Exodus 16. What is incredible is on the sixth day, there were no worms, and that’s why Jesus is called the Manna sent from Heaven, and that’s why the Eucharist is rightfully regarded as the Real Presence of Christ in the Bread and Wine of the Sacrament.

    This article just reinforces my faith in the Apostolic Church.

    Just can’t wait for the iconoclastic comments to appear.

    • Screw them.

      They will pop up like a wort on your arse, rest assured Raph.

    • Julie LaBrecque

      Ah yes, and look below!!! ‘The Mohicans’ blogger began his tirade by exclaiming that our religion will kill us!! How these loons smell the incense is beyond me.

      • Raph Sebastian

        Just saw his post. Another feces flinging babboon who thinks he knows better than all the Apostles and their successors.

        The fruit of Protestantism is clear for all to see. It’s a rotting fruit that corrupts the soul but they eat it anyway.

  • filomena seiffert

    I never doubted the image on the shroud was the image of our Savior. It is good to see science to confirm the reality so that many Thomas will believe. So many miracles, so many signs yet we have a humanity lost, living in a spiritual desert. How is it possible to see the marvelous creation and not believe?

    • jimmy

      me neither, I remember the very first time I saw the image on the shroud I knew in my heart that was a image of our Lord. none of those shows I’ve seen since that time that tried to say it was fake blah blah blah has ever caused me to doubt the image on the shroud because I know that’s just Satan trying to plant doubts in my head and he’s in control of those producing such shows.

      “How is it possible to see the marvelous creation and not believe?”

      simple they have no love for the truth which makes them susceptible to Satan’s tricks. show me one who strongly denies the science presented on the shroud and dismisses it as a big nothing and I’ll show you a hater of god under Satan’s control.

      • filomena seiffert

        It is very good to find people with faith, who put God above science and everything else.

  • Kamau41

    Fantastic research study on the Shroud of Turin and the absolute reassurance that Jesus’s presence is truly in the Holy Eucharist.

    Praise be to God Almighty!!!!!

  • Brenda

    All of those marks on the body I can just feel some pain looking at it, And then the hands remind me of all the aborted baby images we have seen lately, those little formed hands really stand out.

  • Rjk

    I believe that the only reason why the ones who don’t believe in the Eucharist or have any Faith have not been called upon by GOD.

    • Kelly Ann

      Yes. The gospel teaches us so.

    • filomena seiffert

      They were called but were not chosen.

  • Julie LaBrecque

    All non- apostolic churches are not true because they cannot be true.

    • Kamau41

      Double SNAP!!!!!

  • Doc

    I have always believed the Shroud to be the true burial cloth of Christ. Looking at the image and the torture marks, I am reminded “by His stripes we are healed.”

    Thank You for paying that price for us, Lord Jesus.

  • Kamau41

    They are NOT outside of AUTHORITY.

    Oh boy! Sadly you have no idea.

  • Coombes Larry

    Still desperately tired, hounded by obsessive mothers and staggering to recover from exam season!

    Anyway, many moons ago I rush hacked these two introductory videos from much longer sources together on the Shroud of Turin. The first covers the essentials of the shroud, the second on the dating issue because THAT ALWAYS comes up!

    I also created a PDF that deals with ALL the objections to the authenticity of the shroud (Ir’s a bit sarcastic) which I am happy to email to people here (I do not have a blog, facebook or website outside of my Youtube pages. It’s almost illegal for a foreigner in Indonesia to have a website and I am not going to upset my hosts!)
    My email is: [email protected]

    What!! Youtube have banned my video! Re-uploaded to VEOH. I think I am going to move there in the future.

    As a complete aside.. for any one time “Doctorshowturin Who” fans (I used to be one) who are disturbed by the transgendered Doctor, you want to look at this 3 minute video! 🙂 I kinda prepared this in anticipation of the day the BBC jumped off the cliff.

    I rushed them together to tackle some ardent online atheists. Oddly enough, I have had people’s heads turn on the nature of the shroud but… and this is incredible… only ONE person, who had already given up on Islam, take the shroud on its own terms and he converted. Everyone else has tried to synthesise the data according to their own beliefs!

    The atheists are the most amusing. In once case the guy just disappeared. I think he was shaken.

    The others just scream ‘fake’ and ‘1988 cardon dating.’ I then get them to try to show how the image on the shroud could be recreated using 14th Century technology. They EVENTUALLY give a link to a supposed reproduction, normally Garlaschelli’s attempt. I point out how this is NOT a reproduction, the atheists get angry, insist the shroud is a fraud regardless and then shut me off.

    The one Buddhist (admittedly of Japanese background where Japan tries to synthesis all religions in order to maintain ‘wa’ or harmony at any price) asked me whether or not Jesus could just be a God and not THE GOD?

    The Muslims just say it was a miracle for the prophet Jesus.

    NOBODY accepts the evidence on its own terms!! It goes to show that for someone to be open to new evidence they ***first*** have to have their old paradigm broken. (I am faintly hopeful that this is happening in Japan where the old Confucian ways are literally killing the Japanese through overwork and suicide and the populous no longer have any sense of destiny or hope. It has been Confucianism which has keep Christianity out of Japan.)

    Anyway, useful links for when the atheists yet again insists that faith = belief without evidence. While the ardent atheist is NEVER moved by the evidence I believe it has an effect on observers of the exchanges.

  • Rjk

    WTF! Really are you serious.

  • Doc

    I think your “spiritual inspiration” is a deception.

    • Tamara Hussey Jewer

      I have life threatening allergies and have seen the Saviour more than once. This man looks nothing like him, but of course i surmised it possible that his earthly body would have been less “perfect” looking, so I had to pray. The answer was emphatically “no”. But then, Catholics killed most of the original Christians in promoting the Trinity, because the original Christians knew Jesus was the begotten son of our Heavenly Father, so how on earth are any of their people trustworthy again? Yeah, no! This is not Jesus’s shroud. But i can handle the answer because I am a trained artist and this man being older is the only thing an artist would conclude, examining it purely from the signs of aging point of view. Add to that our perception of the aging process and character, and it mskes more sense again. But…” It is a wicked and idolitrous man that requires a sign.” Stop looking for signs to validate your faith. He is real. And his face is ultimately the kindest looking face you can imagine and he is youthful looking. Very, very healthy and no stress whatsoever in his face! Sheesh…

      • CTyank

        You seem very sure of your own judgement and knowledge. Be careful….deception can kill you. Instantly.

      • “But then, Catholics killed most of the original Christians in promoting the Trinity[…]”

        This is by far the most absurd thing I have ever heard in my time on this site, 3 years and going strong.

        Here is a newsflash, it was the Catholic who formulated the Trinity, and the word was first coined by a Catholic Church Father, Tertullian (a.d. 145-220):

        […] in thinking that one cannot believe in One Only God in any other way than saying that the Father, the Son, and the Holy Ghost are the very selfsame Person. As if in this way also one were not All, in that All are of One, by unity [that is] of substance; while the mystery of the dispensation is still guarded, which distributes the Unity into a Trinity, placing in their order the three Persons – the Father, the Son, and the Holy Ghost […]Against Praxeas Chapter II

        Now I know that you are not a credible person at all.

        • David W

          Well, like all the other neo gnostic cultists, she received a direct revelation. Just like Ole Muhammed and Smith. No science needed for the JWs or Arian heretics. And Protestant grasshoppers are known for their historical ignorance.

      • filomena seiffert

        Jesus has appeared with traces of the people he is appearing, Jew, White, Black and I have not heard of it, but certainly as Oriental. God can do anything He wants. You seam to forget He was under the most dreadful stress one can get, and mostly do not forget He is God and living in heaven without the smallest stress, but a blissful joy.

      • CTyank

        Those in the New Testament who saw the resurrected Christ and also knew Jesus in the flesh did not recognize him on their own at first meeting. Sheesh

  • Dominus

    Eternal glory be to Jesus Christ, our lord and saviour. I always knew the shroud was authentic when I watched that documentary which gave strong evidence, without any doubt regarding its time of origin, effects, blood and tissue samples on it, everything. Fascinating!

    Deus Vult!

  • CTyank

    Catholics don’t claim that the pope or a priest or the Virgin Mary can save you to my knowledge. Jesus Christ IS God if you can get on your knees and confess and repent and worship Him and it has any meaning at all. Therefore, the Blessed Virgin Mary is the mother of God. I don’t understand why that is such a hard concept to grasp. Very simple.

    Marijuana to you, too.

    • Julie LaBrecque

      There seem to be plenty more like him, enough to fill a zoo.

  • Julie LaBrecque

    “She might be the mother for Jesus Christ, but not GOD. ” Are you Nuts? She ‘MIGHT’ be the mother??? What fool Lucifer found when he found you!!! Just so you know, Jesus IS GOD!!! Mary IS the mother of Jesus, therefore, she IS the Mother of God!! Too bad for you that WE DO confess sins and you don’t. Jesus said whosoevers sins THEY forgave, they were forgiven, and whosoever sins THEY DID NOT forgive, they WERE NOT FORGIVEN – so tell us, in light of this Scripture, on what basis do You presume to think that your sins have forgiven??

  • Raph Sebastian

    The only people that say Catholics worship the Pope, a priest or The Blessed Mother of God are none other than Protestants and your ilk. You and your grossly malicious kind are clueless and have fallen for the greatest deception of satan. Which is the Protestant heresy.

  • Is Jesus God?

    Yes or no.

    • racarrera

      Notice these dolts never answer.

      • What I found comical was his initial comment. He actually contradicted himself. I’m willing to wait with patience to see if he reply with a ‘yes’ or ‘no’ without launching into a lecture that is atypical of the Protestant.

        • racarrera

          Wise move. It’s amazing to see what freaks this place attracts, but everything has its purpose. We’ll learn from their foolishness.

          • Indeed, they can’t seem to make up their mind. A Shroud of Jesus is being discussed and they want to make an issue about the Mother of God. Then an article that described the miracle of Mexico being converted to the Faith because of the Mother of God’s appearing to a Mexican, they want to make it an issue of something else.

            They never, ever address the central thesis of the article. Carnally minded lot, they are.

          • racarrera

            Most of the weirdos who make such assertions are bigots anyway. Most of them live in the bubble of suburbia, not able to comprehend the idea that Christ spoke to all mankind, continuously, though the Church for centuries. It’s Americanism, the disease the Mormons gave to the United States, which Evangelicals globbed onto.

            Imagine the nerve of Russians or Middle Easterners or Slavs or Japanese or Mexicans possibly understanding Christianity better than these sainted horse’s rears.

  • Brenda

    Get off the new age crap its satanic to the core.

  • Amen.

  • Ratliff

    Yet, according to the scripture, items Paul touched healed the sick.
    Acts 19:11-12.

    Relics, anyone?

  • “You do know Christians called Arians by the Catholic church were persecuted and slaughtered because they promoted the original Christianity”

    You do know that you can look up “Arian” on and refute away all the articles that debunk your slandering claim you jot in a line empty of any substance.

  • WRONG!

    Arians, based on the teaching of Arius, taught a DENIAL of Christ’s divinity that is that Christ was not God.

    St. Athanasius, the chief defender of Catholic orthodoxy, said, of Arians’ evil doctrine which became the forerunner of the Anti-christian religion Islam:

    But, whereas one heresy, and that the last, which has now risen as harbinger of Antichrist, the Arian, as it is called, considering that other heresies, her elder sisters, have openly proscribed, in her craft and cunning, affects to array herself in Scripture language, like her father the devil, and is forcing her way back into the Church’s paradise[…] Four Discourse Against The Arians, Discourse I, Chapter 1

    It get much worse, for Arius said of Christ:

    Extracts from the Thalia of Arius. Arius maintains that God became a Father, and the Son was not always; the Son out of nothing; once He was not; He was not before his generation; He was created; named Wisdom and Word after God’s attributes; made that He might make us; one out of many powers of God; alterable; exalted on God’s foreknowledge of what He was to be; not very God; but called so as others by participation; foreign in essence from the Father; does not know or see the Father; does not know Himself. Ibid, chapter II

    So, according to St. Athanasius, the defender of Christ’s divinity as understood by the Catholic Church who taught that Jesus is God in-the-flesh, Arius denied that Christ co-exist with the Father before the world was created, and you have the gall, nay, the stupidity to declare on this forum that the Catholic Church slaughtered the Arians because of their heresy. It goes to show that you are ill-educated and a heretic.

    Let the Nicene Council speak for itself:

    We believe in one God, the Father Almighty, maker of all things visible and invisible; and in one Lord Jesus Christ, the Son of God, the only-begotten of His Father, of the substance of the Father, God of God, Light of Light, very God of very God, begotten, not made, being of one substance with the Father. By whom all things were made, both which be in heaven and in earth. Who for us men and for our salvation came down [from heaven] and was incarnate and was made man. He suffered and the third day he rose again, and ascended into heaven. And he shall come again to judge both the quick and the dead. And [we believe] in the Holy Ghost. And whosoever shall say that there was a time when the Son was not, or that he was begotten he was not, or that he was made of things that were not, or that he is of a different substance or essence [from the Father] or that he is a creature, or subject to change or conversion – all that so say, the Catholic and Apostolic Church anathematizes them.

    • CTyank

      Masterful refutation!

    • Kamau41

      Excellent refutation across the board simply letting the words from the great St. Athanasius speak combined with the Nicene Council.

  • Idiot. It was the Holy Spirit who healed them by working unusual miracle through Paul’s handkerchief.

  • jimmy

    absolutely fascinating!!! only haters of god would deny these miracles.

    and also if I’m not mistaken the Eucharistic miracle of Lanciano, Italy that was later tested in the 1990s not only concluded it was heart tissue of a tortured man but a man from the Middle East in his 30s. I was actually watching a video of the doctor who conducted the test a couple weeks ago and I’m pretty sure he mentioned that. it’s quite obvious who’s blood was found in the Eucharist.

  • Kamau41

    WARNING, slander sends people to Hell.

  • What some of these deluded who hate the shroud want is that we have nothing. They say they want us to follow scripture. Yet even that offer is false for they eradicate seven books and nearly the whole Old Testament since whenever we tell them about Christian warfare they say claim that warfare is only ‘Old Testament’. They claim that they are “saints” yet they want us to ignore the real saints of old. They tell us to listen to these booklet instruction on how to get saved and forget that Christ established a church. These want nothing because they provide nothing. They claim they love Jesus but paint a different Jesus from the whims of their imagination. They are nothing more than heretics.

    • jimmy

      that’s exactly right walid they want us to have nothing. yes they’ve created this imaginary big Teddy bear Jesus one that never drew the line and took his whip out to the money changers in fact if Jesus himself was right in front of them they would probably be trying to lecture Jesus more on how to be like Jesus. the world is full of heretics and heathens smh Jesus never taught to capitulate to evil and that sometimes means getting out your whip and going to war. I pitty the lost.

      • I was playing a scenario with Ted as if Jesus visited earth as to how people could react to Him. It would be the same scenario as before, He will be thrown out of their temples.

        • jimmy

          I’ve often thought of similar scenarios myself and came to that same sad conclusion that it would be the same as before. every time I think of what would Jesus say to them Matthew 7:21-23 always comes to mind.

  • You aren’t either.

  • Oh really?

    Here is why your initial response to Ratliff instantly fell apart:

    “God was performing extraordinary miracles by the hands of Paul, so that handkerchiefs or aprons were even carried from his body to the sick, and the diseases left them and the evil spirits went out,” (Acts 19:11-12).

    Tell me, O Wise and “Spirit-filled” one, where was Faith in the quotes verse?

    Why dost thou ignored that it was God who did those miracle that even handkerchiefs, touched by St. Paul, caused disease or demons to be cast out?

    Thou forgot that Jesus promised signs would follow the apostles as laid out in Mark 16:17-18 and God’s Words cannot be broken.

    • Love reading your comments in the King James version 😉

  • Ratliff

    So why were the objects carried to them? Why have Paul touch said items at all? Your argument has no weight and no merit.
