Unusual Phenomena Happening Around The Holy Sepulchre

Our Beloved Saviour

A strange phenomena in the sky of Jerusalem during the opening of Jesus Christ tomb

EWTN Report

An astonishing discovery has been made during repair work to the Edicule -- the ancient chamber housing Jesus' tomb in Jerusalem's Church of the Holy Sepulchre. Scientists have reported extraordinary phemonena that may support the authenticity of the Holy Shroud of Turin.

On October 26, 27 and 28, 2016 a group of scientists and religious authorities oversaw the removal of the marble slab that covers the tomb of Christ. Marie-Armelle Beaulieu, editor-in-chief of Terre Sainte Magazine, reports that some of the measuring instruments used by scientists were altered by electromagnetic disturbances when they were placed directly on the stone in which Christ’s body rested. The scientists reports that their measuring devices either malfunctioned or ceased to work at all. Aleteia reports

The phenomenon was confirmed by one of the scientists authorized to access the tomb. Later, one of the heads of the building and construction team, Antonia Moropoulou, indicated that it is really hard to imagine that someone would be willing to put in danger his or her reputation just because of a “publicity stunt.” Moreover, the journalist testifies to the scientists’ surprise during the opening of the slab: they hoped that the grave would be much lower than it was. Their conclusion: previously performed analyses with the instruments seemed to have been distorted by an electromagnetic disturbance. 

The observation of unusual electromagnetic disturbances at the tomb of Our Lord may support a scientific hypothesis proposed to explain the creation of the mysterious image on the Holy Shroud of Turin. After five years of study and experiments scientists at Italy's National Agency for New Technologies, Energy and Sustainable Economic Development [ENEA] concluded that the Shroud of Turin cannot be a 'medieval fake'.  The ENEA study proposed that the image may have been created by an intense source of light, but no man-made light would produce the required strength.

The ENEA scientists attempted to re-create the shroud image using a CO2 laser:

"One of the assumptions related to the formation of the image was that regarding some  form of electromagnetic energy (such as a flash of light at short wavelength), which could fit the requirements for reproducing the main features of the Shroud image, such as superficiality of color, color gradient, the image also in areas of the body not in contact with the cloth and the absence of pigment on the sheet.

The first attempts made to reproduce the face on the Shroud by radiation, used a CO2 laser which produced an image on a linen fabric that is similar at a macroscopic level.  However, microscopic analysis showed a coloring that is too deep and many charred linen threads, features that are incompatible with the Shroud image.  Instead, the results of ENEA “show that a short and intense burst of VUV directional radiation can color a linen cloth so as to reproduce many of the peculiar characteristics of the body image on the Shroud of Turin, including shades of color, the surface color of the fibrils of the outer linen fabric, and the absence of fluorescence”.

'However, Enea scientists warn, "it should be noted that the total power of VUV radiations required to instantly color the surface of linen that corresponds to a human of average height, body surface area equal to = 2000 MW/cm2 17000 cm2 = 34 thousand billion watts makes it impractical today to reproduce the entire Shroud image using a single laser excimer, since this power cannot be produced by any VUV light source built to date (the most powerful available on the market come to several billion watts )”.


Report From Russia

The first thing that surprised the workers was the “sweet aroma” they smelled as they drew near to the tomb. As reported by the Catholic Culture agency, the smell is reminiscent of the floral smell which is often spoken about in ancient sources describing the appearances of saints, including the Most Holy Theotokos.

The workers also reported that some electronic devices lying around the tomb began to fail inexplicably. Some of them turned out to be completely broken. A possible explanation is powerful electromagnetic radiation.

Restoration work is now underwayon the Aedicule. In particular, the restorers are cleaning the facing side of the rock on which the body of Jesus Christ was laid. On October 26 archaeologists removed the slab from the Holy Sepulchre (for the first time in 450 years). Beneath it they found another marble slab with a cross. Historians believe it was made during the Crusades.

The funeral bed itself turned out to be completely undamaged, although the walls of the cave in which it was located were destroyed together with the original building of the Church of the Holy Sepulchre in the eleventh century. “It’s absolutely amazing.

My knees are shaking, because I didn’t expect this… We can’t say with absolutely certainty at first glance that there is clear evidence that the tomb wasn’t damaged this whole time. After all, scientists and historians have been working on these questions for many decades,” said archaeologist Frederick Hibert.

The tomb of the Lord is hewn from a natural rock tomb from the Second Temple period, in which is a stone funerary bed (6.6 ft. x 2.6 ft., 2 ft. from the ground). The present space, as the previous cave which was destroyed in 1009, is called the Holy Sepulchre. This space, arranged as an aedicule, symbolizes the cave in which the Body of Christ was buried. To this day, only the bed, part of the walls of the cave and part of the entrance have been preserved. By the middle of the sixteenth century the bed was seriously damaged by pilgrims trying to break off particles of the shrine. In 1555 the bed was covered with a white marble slab to prevent such attempts.
