Extract from the Article:

Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI, when he was still cardinal Joseph Ratzinger, said that it was “a truly mysterious image, which no human artistry was capable of producing”.

When he visited the Turin as Pope in May 2010 to see the shroud, he came close to endorsing its authenticity.

“This is a burial cloth that wrapped the remains of a crucified man in full correspondence with what the Gospels tell us of Jesus,” he said.

The shroud was “an icon written in blood; the blood of a man who was whipped, crowned with thorns, crucified and injured on his right side,” Benedict said.
