Crown of Thorns / Shroud of Turin

May God Bless You Today, and Every Day: Crown of Thorns replica placed upon a second-generation photograph of the Shroud of Turin. Part of the Wonders of the Bible collection. The photo is so clear that if you enlarge it, you can see the herringbone weave pattern of the linen shroud itself. The reverse contains this prayer, approved by the Archbishop of Turin during the 1933 exposition year: "O Lord Jesus, Who, didst leave to us upon the Holy Shroud the Image of Thy Holy Face … together with the imprint of Thy Sacred Body … tortured and put to death for our salvation: grant, through the merits of Thy Sufferings, that, venerating on earth, the Image of Thy Holy Face upon which the very angels long to gaze, we may be made worthy to contemplate It forever in Heaven. Amen."
