Wilmington, DE––A replica of the replica of the Shroud of Turin, the hand painted copy of the replica of the shroud believed to have been wrapped around Jesus after his death, went on display today in Wilmington, Delaware. “It’s amazing to look at,” Fr. Jerome Franklin of St. Matthew Catholic Church said. “I mean the people, not the Shroud. It’s amazing to just look out at all these Catholics come to venerate a replica of a replica. It’s kinda weird, actually.” Franklin went on to tell EOTT that, although he “kind of” felt guilty about charging parishioners the $10 admission fee to look at the replica of the replica, that he planned to use the money St. Matthew’s made to bring the actual replica of the Shroud some time in the future. “I feel so, so blessed right now!” parishioner Roberta Thomas said as she kissed and touched the relic with a variety of medals and rosaries. “Look…I think some of the paint got on my hands!” At press time, some parishioners were taking pictures of the replica of the replica of the Shroud of Turin to place in their homes.
