Turin, March 27 - Pope Francis will appear on TV to
introduce the second-ever appearance of the Holy Shroud of Turin
on Italian airwaves Saturday.
"It will be a message of intense spiritual scope, charged
with positivity, which will help (people) never to lose hope,"
said Turin Archbishop Cesare Nosiglia in announcing Wednesday
the pope's intro for the famous relic bearing the imprint of a
Christ-lke body.
The shroud, revered as the winding sheet used to cover
Christ's body after the crucifixion but carbon-dated to the
Middle Ages, will be shown on state broadcaster RAI's first
channel from 17:10 to 18:40 Saturday, the day before the Easter
feast commemorating the resurrection.
Catholic scientific experts have disputed the carbon dating
indicating the shroud is a medieval forgery and said they have
found traces of pollen from the Holy Land.
The Catholic Church has neither formally endorsed nor
rejected the shroud, which bears an apparently burned-on image
of a dead man resembling classic depictions of Christ.
