Tulip



"Bring the tulip and the rose,
While their brilliant beauty glows"

"The tulip's petals shine in dew,
All beautiful, but none alike"
James Montgomery (1771-1854)

Shroud of Turin


The Holy Shroud, the most important relic of Christianity, is a linen mortuary sheet (440 x 113 cm) on which, on one side, the figure of a tortured and crucified man is imprinted. The two dark lines and the light triangles that run the entire length are the traces left by the fire that devastated in 1532 the Sainte-Chapelle of Chambéry (France) in which the sheet was almost destroyed.
The Shroud is on display inside the Cathedral of Turin from 10 April to 23 May 2010.
Pope Benedict XVI will be in Turin Sunday 2 May 2010.
