Priceless Religious Relic Found in Tennessee Mobile Home

Just for the record, I haven’t given up blogging.  It has been a wee bit stressful around here, and I still have a lot on my plate. But I am going to start blogging something everyday beginning on Monday even if it is just links.

This is tre cool!

One of only a handful of paintings based on the cloth used to wipe Jesus’ face before his crucifixion was found in a closet in a Tenn. mobile home. WVLT-TV’s John Treanor reports.

The painting is based on Veronica’s veil. 
Oh and back in 2004, according to Catholic Culture, the veil may have been found.

    This is a sham. A. There are lots and lots of images of the veil of Veronica, not a handful. B. This is not a painting, it is an engraving printed on linen and probably sold to pilgrims to Rome. This one is clumsily hand-colored. C. This is appallingly lazy journalism. It took me about 30 seconds on google image to find the same image sold on an auction site. The link is here – I have absolutely no connection to this auction site, it is just where I found the image. I think it is very cruel to lead this gentleman on by making him think he has something “priceless” when he does not.

      “This is a unique thing that is hard to put a dollar figure on, but could be potentially priceless in terms of history. It is a portrait of Jesus from the Veil of Veronica that was blessed by the Pope in the 19th century,” said Bivens…..You may be wrong about this one sir?
