'To See the Face of God and Live :: Catholic News Agency (CNA)' - a Commentary

Images on the left are the creative work of an artist as he sees a smiling Jesus showing his love for all mankind and his ultimate sacrifice below, on the cross, to save us from sin.

Further in John 3:16, Jesus said, “For God so loved the world that he gave His one and only Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life.”

“I and the father are one”. In John 14: 11-14 Jesus added, “Believe me when I say that I am in the Father and the Father is in me… I tell you the truth, anyone who has faith in me will do what I have been doing. He will do even greater things than these, because I am going to the Father. And I will do whatever you ask in my name, so that the Son may bring glory to the Father. You may ask me for anything in my name, and I will do it.”

With these words of enlightenment and inspiration, Christ Jesus tells us to heed, to live by in faith and do what he teaches.

And in our prayers addressed in his name, he will listen. Each one will be answered in accordance to his will, in his time and in his way, for he knows what is best for us.

Continue reading on our linked post above and you will see how Deacon Joshua Allen found the bloodied evidence of the passion, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ on the Shroud as something more than an episode and culmination of the Son of Man’s mission on earth meant for him as he saw the peaceful image reflected on the shroud’s face.

It was an image of humility, mercy and forgiveness, despite the torture and the pain reflected by the blood and related markings on the shroud that he endured.

It is this that moved him, so with the others, perhaps, who were with him during their visit to this mystery laden phenomenon, the Shroud of Turin.

Taking from the reviews and testimonials of the many who have seen it, including this blogger’s mom and his brother’s family, it is a ‘must see place’ that further strengthens one’s faith in Christ with that ‘feeling of God’s love and presence as you see and watch the compelling image of the face and body of our Lord and Savior on the shroud.’

You may have to check first though when is the next available schedule for the exhibit to reopen as dictated by the Vatican.

No ordinary man can bear such excruciating pain and torture, yet humbles himself to God with his non-enduring mercy and forgiveness for all those who have persecuted him.

Truly, Joshua has seen the face of God and he knows it in his heart, as he lives by his faith.

  1. The Shroud of Turin has not been declared authentic as that of Christ as of yet by the Vatican, with many experts and scientists studying it. But it supports the exhibits on a limited period of time to protect it from over exposure which can threaten its remarkable features and its very existence. With some experts and scientists pointing to its baffling 'photo image' as a result of an enormous light possibly produced by the resurrection, more and more people are awed by its powerful attraction and the feeling of God's presence among many visitors. And for the most, this is enough to satisfy true believers in Christ who have learned to accept him as 'The Redeemer' with the everyday miracles and blessings that happen in their life.
