AID MONDAY. MAY 25, 1998 WORLD THE SALINA JOURNAL T ITALY Pope encourages further testing of shroud In its first showing in 18 years, Shroud of Turin attracting thousands By FRANCES D'EMILIO The Associated Press TURIN, Italy — Pope John Paul II knelt in silent prayer Sunday before the Shroud of Turin, and encouraged scientists to keep testing the linen many believe wrapped the body of the crucified Christ. John Paul last saw the shroud in private viewing in 1980, two years after the previous public showing. On Sunday, he became the longest-serving pope of this century, surpassing the 19 years, seven months and seven days of Pius XII, who died in 1958. V FRANCE Following the footsteps of more than 1 million pilgrims who have seen the cloth since it went on display last month, John Paul paused before the linen enveloped in a bulletproof case and what he called "mysterious fascination." The sheet, about 13 feet long and 3 feet wide, is on display for the first time in 20 years in Turin's cathedral. The mysterious cloth bears the image of a man with wounds similar to those suffered by Jesus. In 1988, scientists tested scraps of the shroud with Vatican approval and concluded it dated JOHN PAUL Greek movie takes top prize at Cannes festival But biggest applause goes to runner-up film, 'Life is Beautiful' By CHRISTOPHER BURNS The Associated Press CANNES, France — A poet's struggle with memory and death in "Eternity and a Day," by Greek director Theo Angelopoulos, won the Golden Palm on Sunday at the 51st Cannes Film Festival. But the wildest applause greeted the festival's runner-up. The Grand Prize went to "Life is Beautiful" by Italy's Roberto Benigni, who directed and starred as a father who uses desperate and hilarious means to shield his son from the reality of a Nazi death camp. "Eternity" tells the tale of a dying poet who befriends a young Albanian refugee before entering a hospital. The boy, with the help of words, helps him bring his wife back to life — for a day. "I am very touched," Angelopoulos said as he accepted his prize. Referring to the time he complained about only getting a special jury prize for "Ulysses" Gaze" in 1995, the 62-year-old director said: "I don't know what to say. If I didn't get the (Golden Palm), I wouldn't have done the same thing as last time." The jury president, director Martin Scorsese, said Angelopoulos had won unanimously. But it was Benigni who stole the show, kissing Scorsese's shoes and hugging members of the jury. "I want to dedicate this film to all the people who are not here and who left us, who made us understand what is liberty, love and life," he said. The award for best director went to Britain's John Boorman for "The General," the story of a Robin Hood-style Irish criminal hunted by both police and the IRA. "This week the Irish nation voted for peace," Boorman said. "So we should dedicate this to the Irish people." Britain's Peter Mullan took best actor for his lead role in "My Name is Joe." back to between 1260 and 1390. They still can't explain how the image was made, and some experts have said contamination might have affected the carbon-14 dating tests. "Since we're not dealing with a matter of faith, the church can't pronounce itself on such questions," the pope said. "It entrusts to scientists the tasks of continuing to investigate, to reach adequate answers to the questions connected to this shroud." But the pope urged scientists to respect both "scientific methodology and the sensibility of the faithful." Whatever its origin, the 78-year- old pontiff said the shroud is for him "the icon of the suffering of the innocent of all times." The shroud, which barely escaped a disastrous fire in the cathedral last year, has also become big business. Booths near the cathedral hawk scarves and tote bags imprinted with its image. And a famous fabric shop known for its expensive cloth, Galtrucco, displayed a replica in its window. The snowing has also sparked a rash of books arguing various theories about its origin. Although thousands of reservations are still available, church officials expept at least 2 million will see the shroud by the time the display ends June 14. The shroud will be shown again during Holy Year celebrations in 2000, and there are indications more tests might be allowed after that. Don't Suffer Needlessly! Call Us Today!
