Science has newly confirmed something about the Shroud of Turin that saints already knew.

Centuries ago, Saint Bernard of Clairvaux in ecstasy asked Jesus which was His greatest unrecorded suffering and the wound that inflicted the most pain on Him in Calvary and Jesus answered:

"I had on My Shoulder, while I bore My Cross on the Way of Sorrows, a grievous Wound which was more painful than the others and which is not recorded by men. Honor this Wound with thy devotion and I will grant thee whatsoever thou dost ask through its virtue and merit and in regard to all those who shall venerate this Wound, I will remit to them all their venial sins and will no longer remember their mortal sins."

Anne Catherine Emmerich in the he Dolorous Passion of Our Lord Jesus Christ written from her visions said:

"There was a frightful wound on the shoulder which had borne the weight of the Cross, and all the upper part of the body was covered with bruises and deeply marked with the blows of the scourges. "

And most recently we recount the meeting of two future Saints. Padre Pio and Fr. Karol Wojtyla where the future St. John Paul II went to spend some time with the future St. Pio. Fr. Karol Wojtyla asked from which of his stigmatic wounds did Padre Pio suffer the most. Padre Pio answered:

It is my shoulder wound, which no one knows about and has never been cured or treated." This is extremely significant, not only because it reveals that Padre Pio bore this wound, but because,

Four university professors have published an article in “Injury” magazine revealing that the crucified man that was wrapped in the Turin Shroud suffered a dislocation of the humerus, the paralysis of one arm and a violent trauma to the neck and chest.

Thank you Jesus for suffeing so terribly and bearing our sins so that we may be saved unto eternal forgiveness undeserved.

Shroud of Turin & Padre Pio — New, for me information.

Extract:

It is my shoulder wound, which no one knows about and has never been cured or treated.” This is extremely significant, not only because it reveals that Padre Pio bore this wound, but because, as far as is known, the future pope is the only one to whom Padre Pio ever revealed existence of this secret wound.

**”I had on My Shoulder, while I bore My Cross on the Way of Sorrows, a grievous Wound which was more painful than the others and which is not recorded by men. Honor this Wound with thy devotion and I will grant thee whatsoever thou dost ask through its virtue and merit and in regard to all those who shall venerate this Wound, I will remit to them all their venial sins and will no longer remember their mortal sins.”**

I say a prayer that speaks of the shoulder wound — from St. Bridget.

Quite interesting. It would be like Him to pick the most painful wound and suffer it in complete silence, never even mentioning it to the Apostles in all the times He appeared to them later, as a way to make an even more perfect sacrifice.

There’s so much to meditate on here.
