Yesterday a friend posted some photos of the bronze statue of our Lord that was cast from 3D images of the Shroud of Turin, on his Facebook page from his trip to Israel.
Had to share his and a few I found online.
From his trip. The full body.
You can see where the scourges inflicted wounds on His body.
“What matters for the believer, is that the Shroud is a mirror of the Gospel. The image it presents has such a profound relationship with what the Gospels tell of Jesus’ passion and death that every sensitive person feels inwardly touched and moved at beholding it” (John Paul II, Address given in Turin on May 24, 1998).
Beauty is in the eye of the believer.

Hi, Thanks for your photos. I’m trying to find out more info on Lorenzo Ferris’ sculptures–mainly this one. Can you please find out where this is located in Israel? Thanks so much, April L.
Sorry, It seems I was mistaken & this is actually by Luigi Mattei. I know they both did similar pieces. Thanks, April L.

Yeah, I did come across that while researching where it was located. Thanks. Now if I could only find the info on Lorenzo Ferris’ works based on his long studies of the shroud. 🙂 ~April
🙂 God bless you. Pray and let our Lord guide you
Dear Lord Jesus, these images allow me to see the shocking and startling truth of how much you suffered for me. I feel faint and weak when I look at you in these images. They brutalised YOU and tortured YOU. Thank YOU so much for dying for my sins, I am so unworthy of what YOU did for me on the cross. I pray that I never ever take your sacrifice for granted. YOU are so precious and YOU have made me worthy to enter YOUR eternal kingdom of light when I accepted YOU into my life. I cannot thank YOU enough. I can only hope to please YOU by living a Holy and sanctified life in YOUR AMAZING name.
PRAISE YOU FOREVER AND EVER.
