The Catholic Church has preserved a rich heritage of sacred art, each work a reflection of the artist’s personal contemplation of God, displayed to deepen the meditation of millions of viewers over the centuries.
But the Holy Images we have made available now for the first time are something quite different: the images represented were not the works of human hands.
The Holy Images are high-quality photographs of two miraculous relics left by Our Lord Himself.
They are images which have baffled scientists for centuries. They cannot explain the source of the images on two very fine and ancient fabrics. The materials holding these images are themselves likewise inexplicable. They should long ago have crumbled and decayed into dust.
The Holy Images consist of three faces from photographs by the famous Polish photographer Janusz Rosikon during his two-year pilgrimage across the continent of Europe investigating the relics of Christ.
One the left you can contemplate the famous image of Our Lord’s Face in death as preserved on the Shroud of Turin. On the right is the image visible on the Veil of Manoppello, the face cloth placed by Our Lady on her Son's face in the tomb. The center image is inspired by an insightful observation made in 1979 by a German Trappist nun: both images match perfectly from the anatomical structure of the faces to the wounds visible on both proving that they are the face of the same person, one dead, the other alive. Contemplate and ponder with your own eyes the Face of God Who endured His Passion to conquer death out of love for you!
