[See Schedule Below]

The Faith Based Communications (FBC) Apostolate was established to provide presentations/exhibits without charge to church groups, schools, religious communities, and Eucharistic Congresses on subjects related to Christian Faith anywhere in the United States or Canada.  FBC is currently making presentations on the Shroud of Turin, as well as Eucharistic Miracles.  We have also has been authorized by the Real Presence Eucharistic Education and Adoration Association to exhibit the Vatican's International Exhibition of Eucharistic Miracles of the World. 

There is NO speaker fee/honorarium, NOR any request for reimbursement for travel, lodging, or meals associated with any presentations.  We do NOT take up a good will offering and we don't sell anything for profit.  FBC is a 501 (c) (3) tax exempt foundation.

Shroud of Turin ImageShroud of Turin

FBC's Shroud of Turin Presentation is entitled, "Sacred Cloths of the Passion" and deals with the Shroud of Turin, the Sudarium of Oviedo and the Tunic of Argenteuil. The presentation takes audiences through the history of each cloth, the scientific analyses that have been done, current data that refutes the C-14 dating of the Shroud, analogies between the Man of the Shroud and Jesus through scripture, etc. The inability to explain the mechanism by which the image on the Shroud was created is also explored, along with the unique photo-negative and 3D characteristics of the image. Finally, the links among these three cloths having been in contact with the same crucified person, and its implications are examined. Exhibit materials include full size Shroud images (both positive and negative), relics of the True Cross and St. Longinus, interactive operational VP-8 Image Analyzer, as well as crown of thorns, crucifixion nails, flagrum (whip), 1st century Roman lance, 1/3 size corpus and Shroud for interactively exploring the relative position of body features and blood between the body and Shroud, biblical coins, Roman dice, etc. 70-90 minutes + questions.

A Relics of the Passion Exhibit includes the items identified above, supplemented by display panels arranged by Holy Thursday (Last Supper and Agony in the Garden), Good Friday (Passion), and Easter Sunday (Resurrection).  The display panels include Scriptural references, history of the relics, and the results of scientific studies.  

A Stations of the Cross in the Light of the Sacred Cloths of the Passion presentation is especially appropriate during Lent.  It is accompanied by Exhibit items as described above.


Eucharistic Miracle at LancianoEucharistic Miracles

Vatican's International Exhibition of Eucharistic Miracles of the World

We have selected for exhibition a subset of the 132 Eucharistic miracles (152 panels) approved by the Church.  The full exhibit is overwhelming for most and requires considerable time to properly peruse, whereas the 62 selected miracles (77 panels) can be absorbed during a 60-90 minute visit.  The Vatican Exhibit is ordinarily made in conjunction with the presentation described below.  We have printed copies of the exhibit in Spanish that are available in binders for attendees that are more at ease reading Spanish than English.

Eucharistic Miracles Presentation

The Eucharistic Miracles presentation is intended as an introduction to the Vatican's exhibit, however the presentation could easily stand alone.  The presentation takes audiences through the scriptural basis of the Real Presence, addresses the various events that typically precede a Eucharistic Miracle (e.g. a priest that doubts the Real Presence, a calamity, etc.), and presents examples of each of the thirteen types of manifestations typically experienced during a Eucharistic Miracle.  Scientific data associated with the study of a few of the miracles is also presented.   The presentation includes modern Eucharistic Miracles to assure the audience that this is an ongoing phenomenon.  Emphasis is placed on the fact that the Real Presence is there at every consecration regardless of any physical manifestations.  This presentation can be made with dual screens (we provide both screens and projectors) in order to make the material more accessible to Spanish speaking parishioners.  60 minutes + questions.
