Workers report extraordinary phenomena at Christ’s tomb
November 15, 2016
Workers engaged in a restoration project at the church of the Holy Sepulchre in Jerusalem have reported extraordinary phenomena at the tomb in which Jesus was laid, located inside the basilica.
Workers report that as they approached the tomb they detected a “sweet aroma”—the sort of floral scent that has often been reported in encounters with the saints and with Marian apparitions.
The workers also report that some electronic devices that were left near the tomb began to malfunction or broke down entirely, suggesting that they had been affected by powerful electromagnetic forces.
An international team is engaged in restoration work at the Edicule: the little shrine that was built around the site of Jesus’ tomb. In October, the team exposed the sheet of rock on which Christ’s body was laid.
