The Sign of Our Salvation: Dr. Gilbert Lavoie on the Shroud of Turin

AMDG.  The Shroud of Turin—a burial cloth evidencing Christ’s passion, death, and resurrection—has become a research focus for Dr. Gilbert Lavoie, a physician who’s been practicing medicine for many years. In this episode, Dr. Lavoie takes an unflinching, clinical, and forensic approach to recount how he used his medical training in service of examining and understanding the Shroud. He discusses with Steven, Jordan, and Bonnie the process he went through to reveal the sign of our salvation hidden in the Gospel of John that awaits us.

Listener note: the topics discussed include clinical descriptions of the sufferings of Jesus evident from the Shroud.
