Why CAN’T the Pope declare the image on the shroud to be that of Jesus? Why can’t the head of the church legitimize the proof of it’s Founder? Muslims have no problem declaring a rock as the most sacred thing in their ‘religion’. What’s to stop the Pope from claiming ours and-by declaring it- end all speculation for believers if no one else?

Because the TRUTH is that nobody knows. Church tradition holds that it is the shroud, but all we can really say is maybe. That’s what the pope says. The Catholic church doesn’t run around certifying everything as a miracle. What happens if they discover the shroud is a vey early forgery tomorrow?

And dude, comparing Catholics to Muslims is pretty unfair.

You can't be serious.
