Trained doctor explains scientific evidence connecting Shroud of Turin, Eucharistic miracles by John-HenryWesten for Life Site News
Dr. Scott French is back for another appearance on The John-Henry Westen Show. Last time we discussed COVID and Dr. Fauci, now we discuss the Shroud of Turin and what Eucharistic miracles might reveal about its authenticity.
I had an emergency doctor on the show awhile back talking about COVID, but he’s a really interesting fellow. He’s very Catholic. He got to talking about the Shroud of Turin and the Miracle of Lanciano, where the Holy Communion became flesh and blood.
But those things are thought by many to be just fairy tales, or just made up, or forgeries or whatever. Well, not to this trained doctor’s eye. We’re going to hear about that from Dr. Scott French on this episode of The John-Henry Westen Show.
Dr. French says his 2015 visits to the Shroud of Turin, the purported burial cloth of Jesus Christ, and the town of Lanciano (where the first recorded Eucharistic miracle took place in the eighth century) sparked his interest in the veracity of the miracles.
He explains that the blood on the Shroud, the blood from that Mass in Lanciano, and that of more recent Eucharistic miracles all have something in common: They’re type AB.
“Science can’t observe the supernatural, but it can observe the effects of a supernatural event,” French says. “That’s what the Shroud of Turin is. The Shroud of Turin is a supernatural event. It’s the recording of a supernatural event: the passion and the resurrection of Jesus Christ. And so these Eucharistic miracles are demonstrated to us through science because God knew we’d need help. We have to see it under a microscope and all that.”
Dr. French’s favorite Eucharistic miracle is from Sokolka, Poland, in 2008 because under an electron microscope “you can’t tell where the heart tissue begins and the bread ends.”
