La festa di Natale o la festa di Babbo Natale?

Ci avviciniamo al Natale e sembra quasi sparita ogni allusione al senso autentico di questa festa. L'anno scorso, di fatto, mi sorprese un articolo nel giornale di Montreal in cui un giovane si scandalizzava nel constatare di non riuscire a trovare un presepe nei negozi più comuni. Aveva cercato disperatamente di adornare il suo albero di Natale con l’ immagine tipica della natività, ma con poco successo. Siamo veramente arrivati a questo punto?

The Shroud of Turin Unveiled

In just a few weeks’ time, the Shroud of Turin – the cloth said to have been used to wrap Jesus’ body after his crucifixion – will once again be on display in the Duomo di Torino. From April 19 until June 24 visitors are welcome to visit the Italian cathedral and contemplate the Shroud, which is only exhibited briefly every few years. And with so much doubt, faith, and mystery surrounding the true origins of the Holy Shroud, there will certainly be lots to contemplate. According to Father Nicola Di Narzo of Montreal, “There has been much controversy around the veil that covered the body of Christ in the tomb […] There were those who said it was fake, and others who said it was real.”
