At CIC on Oct. 18, the NSTE was honored to co-host Fr. Robert Spitzer S.J., Ph.D., one of the world's leading experts on the Shroud of Turin. Fr. Spitzer is beloved by millions of Catholics and seen weekly on his popular EWTN show “Father Spitzer's Universe.” He is founder and president of the Spitzer Center and the Magis Center. Fr. Spitzer, who is blind, is an inspiration to those with disabilities, as a scholar, leader, teacher, author, pre-eminent theologian and philosopher. His other fields of expertise include management science, finance, ethics, and physics.

Fr. Spitzer's presentation informed and engaged the CIC audience about the compelling scientific data behind the Shroud. He highlighted the linen cloth's theological insights addressing how science intersects with faith and hope – shedding light on why millions of people believe the Shroud of Turin is the burial cloth of Jesus Christ. Watch the Oct. 18 program here.
