The Liverpool Mattress Imprint: astonishing new, photos now reveal the image startlingly more clearly.
Fr. Francis OLeary, founder of the Jospice International hospices, has recently been in touch with fresh photos of this mattress imprint, the closest known parallel to the Shroud phenomenon, showing the imprint of the deceased hospice patient Les significantly more clearly than before. In particular, besides the astonishing hand imprint with which most BSTS members are familiar (see Newsletter 19, p.9), the new photos unmistakably show Less lower jaw, which can be seen turned sideways, this image seeming to have passed through his pillow in a way no-one yet fully understands.
Fr. OLeary is keen that there should be further scientific research on this imprint, and to this end it is hoped that the photo images can be included in a special section of Barrie Schwortz's web site early in the New Year.
