Click above photo for link to original news article (in Italian) On November 21, 2017, it was announced that Pope Francis approved the suggestion by Archbishop Cesare Nosiglia, the Archbishop of Turin, to allow a special exhibition of the Shroud exclusively for the pilgrimage of young people in August 2018.
On August 9 and 10, young people from the 17 dioceses of Piedmont and Valle d'Aosta will arrive in Turin.
In fact, ten years ago, to celebrate our 30th anniversary, I created a special tribute video that was shown at the 2008 Columbus, Ohio Shroud Conference.
Even sadder, since I produced that video, several more team members have passed, so their names are not included in the memorial at the end of the tribute.
Our sincerest thanks to Bryan Walsh for informing us the next morning.On one occasion when I was in Jerusalem with the ESSJ expedition Alan tracked me down and asked me to conduct botanical experiments on his behalf with flowers in a tomb complex.
