Silver Cross of Turin- From Milestones of Life

Monday, January 31st, 2011

Church Services Tv is delighted to announce on behalf of Church Resources the a launch of very special and unique product indeed.   The Silver Cross of Turin- Brought to you by Milestones of Life

“He was wounded for our iniquities and bruised for our sins.” (Isaias 1: 6)

For the first time ever, forensic science has been able to reveal the true manner and form in which Our Blessed Lord, Jesus Christ, was crucified. The Turin Cross depicts exactly how Our Lord sacrificed Himself for us. And now, the form of that cross has gone into production with Milestones of Life Jewelry.

The Turin Cross is based on scientific analysis of the Shroud of Turin, the burial cloth of our Blessed Saviour. The Shroud presents us with the tangible evidence for the Gospel accounts of Our Lord’s torture, crucifixion, death, burial and resurrection.

Blood traces on the shroud reveal the angle that Our Lord’s arms hung on the cross and the fact that the arms were tied tightly to the beams of the cross. This evidence gives us the shape of the Turin Cross: exactly that which appears on the Gothic chasuble.

The Shroud proves the nails were driven through the hand near the wrist.

The Shroud indicates that the right leg was stretched flat on the cross and the left foot was nailed on top of the right foot using only one nail. To accomplish this, a cavity for the right heel was carved into the cross, the right leg was stretched flat on the cross and the left foot was nailed through the right foot onto a wedge shaped foot rest.

Traces of blood on the Shroud indicate that the Crown of Thorns also covered the top of Our Lord’s head.

The Shroud indicates that the lance entered Our Lord’s side between the 5th and 6th ribs of the right side while He was still on the cross.

The Shroud most clearly shows the extent and intensity of the Scourging of Our Lord. He was lacerated front and back, by multiple persons, with multiple instruments, such that His whole body was criss-crossed with bloody wounds, bruises and swelling sores.

“The only thing I can boast about is the cross of Our Lord, Jesus Christ.” (Gal. 6: 14)

The Cross of Turin has been replicated in silver by Milestones of Life Jewelry. A Special 20% discount off all the price is available ONLY to members of Church Resources.

Membership of Church Resources is Free and any profits made partially subsidize churches live streaming on this website.

European Year of Volunteering 2011

Thursday, January 27th, 2011

The majority of people we at work with in Pastoral Councils and on other committees in the Churches are volunteers. Everyday we are reminded how volunteering is the life blood of both our churches and other community organizations. So today we would like to highlight the 2011 European Year of Volunteering.

The EU has designated 2011 as the European Year of Volunteering, in recognition of the important role voluntary work plays in European society.

In giving the European Year 2011 to Volunteering (EYV2011), the European Union is acknowledging the importance of volunteering in creating a more democratic, caring and responsible society. The European Year will raise awareness about the contributions of, and the challenges faced by, millions of volunteers across the EU, whose efforts help to create a more democratic, caring and responsible society. In the European Union, almost 100 million citizens of all ages invest their time, talents and money to make a positive contribution to their community by volunteering in society organisations, youth clubs, hospitals, schools, in sport clubs, etc.

On Truth proclamation & authenticity of life in the digital age

Wednesday, January 26th, 2011

The Pontiff, Pope Benedict issued his communications message for 45th World Day of Social Communications on Monday last, the Feast of St Francis de Sales, the Patron Saint of journalists. In it he acknowledged that the web is “contributing to the development of new and more complex intellectual and spiritual horizons, new forms of shared awareness.”

The Pontiff said these new technologies “are not only changing the way we communicate, but communication itself, so much so that it could be said that we are living through a period of vast cultural transformation.” This dynamic, he said, had contributed to “a new appreciation of communication itself, which is seen first of all as dialogue, exchange, solidarity and the creation of positive relations.”

“As with every other fruit of human ingenuity, the new communications technologies must be placed at the service of the integral good of the individual and of the whole of humanity.”

Recording Request for Armagh Cathedral

Monday, January 24th, 2011

Hello, my name is J_ and my grandfather was buried in Armagh Cathedral on **nd **** 2011 at 12pm. I myself was present at the service, however, several of my cousins were abroad in Australia and were able to watch the service online due to the fantastic service provided by this website! For this, i commend and thank you for making this possible.
Since then, others members of my family have asked is it possible for them to see the service again for example via replay or by dvd? I understand the website provides a live stream but i was wondering are any of the services able to be replayed or available on dvd?
I would be very grateful if you could assist me in this matter.
Thank you

Dear J_

My condolences on the death of your Grandfather. As you are stated above the current services on the web site are for Live streaming of church services only. We are currently developing the software and technology to allow the recoding of these services but unfortunately this will not be available for Armagh Cathedral until later in the Spring.

Kind Regards


Spirit Radio – Passion for Life

Friday, January 21st, 2011

Church Services TV is delighted to announce on behalf of Spirit FM

Irelands’ first ever Christian Radio station will arrive – January 27th 2011.

Spirit Radio plans to air a mix of familiar music hits containing positive lyrics as well as a broad selection of contemporary Christian music.  Spirit Radio is to be enjoyed. It won’t preach to the choir by getting stuck into heavy doctrine. It aspires to exemplify the joy of Christianity through its appealing contemporary music, positive lyrics and chat.

6 years ago, ‘Spirit FM’ operated a temporary 3-month license as a forerunner to the Spirit Radio we know today. One particular story relates to a young chartered accountant working for KPMG, Niall Leahy. Like many Irish, Niall hadn’t considered his Catholic roots seriously. Dipping into depression and exploring Buddhism, Niall one day stumbled across Spirit FM. He was immediately intrigued by what he considered quality music and inspiring speech content. Later he heard an advertisement for a Youth2000 retreat and decided that he at least needed to see what Catholicism had to offer before looking elsewhere. Niall attended the retreat and started a journey back to God and the Catholic Church. Today Niall is into his second year training for the priesthood and continues to be an enthusiastic supporter of Spirit Radio.

The station is located close to RTE on the 88-92kHz FM band in Dublin (89.9), Cork (90.9), Galway (91.7), Limerick (89.8) and Waterford (90.1).
