Jesus Christ — our Lord and Savour.
Chrissy I have never doubted that the Shroud of Turin is authentic. Of course, I am a Catholic. It is what I have always believed 🙂
Ditto! 🙂 One thing that fascinates me is the blood type.
The oldest blood type is O-.
Mutations in the blood genes led to A, B and Rh-positive (+), all of which are dominant over O and Rh-negative. A and B are co-dominants.
Each of these mutation – A, B and Rh-positive – were additions to the blood genome that trigger an immune rejection response in non-matching blood.
E.g., Rh-negative blood can be given to Rh-positive people, but not vice versa. Likewise, O can be given to anyone, but can only receive O. A will react to B. B will react to A.
Because O-negative has no markers that stimulate an immune rejection response in any blood type, it is known as the universal donor type. (That’s why you hear in hospital dramas, “Get me some O neg!”)
At the opposite end is AB-positive, which has markers for every blood type, is known as the universal recipient. AB-positive people can be transfused with any blood type, but can only donate to other AB-positives.
Why am I going on about this? Because the bloodstains on the Shroud of Turin is type AB and the flesh and blood of the Lanciano Eucharistic miracle are both type AB-positive.
Jesus was AB-positive … the universal recipient.
He took our sins upon Himself and paid the blood price so we could go to Heaven.
