Faithful Witness

"Jesus Christ is the faithful witness, the firstborn of the dead and ruler of the kings of the earth. To him who loves us and has freed us from our sins by his blood, who has made us into a kingdom, priests for his God and Father, to him be glory and power forever and ever. Amen.
Behold, he is coming amid the clouds , and every eye will see him, even those who pierced him. All the peoples of the earth will lament him. Yes. Amen.
'I am the Alpha and the Omega' says the Lord God, 'the one who is and who was and who is to come, the almighty.'" Revelation 1:5-8

Second Reading from the Solemnity of Our Lord Jesus Christ the King

Influential American Journalist in Rome States: I have been to Manoppello to See...the Holy Face!

The knowledgeable and influential American journalist Robert Moynihan, based in Rome, has written an article published on the Zenit website
regarding the Holy Shroud of Turin in which he also says that he has been to Manoppello to see the Holy Face. Under the heading "Veil of Veronica" he speaks in general terms of the transparency of the Holy Face and the fact that "some think" it is even more amazing than the Holy Shroud and that it is connected to the moment of Jesus' resurrection.
