Founder: Roger Poisson (1943-2011)

The Shroud of Turin

As you may or may not know, the founder of the Mission of the Shroud has been placed in his Heavenly home with the Father. Roger Poisson was in the hands of the Spirit and He chose to take him home on the 6th of March, 2011. He was surrounded by the love of family and friends, though near or far. He was also visited by many priests and nuns, who gave him their private blessings.

Do not mistake this for a “death announcement” but as a re-birth, born-again, into Heaven. Roger has never wanted us to cry for him or be saddened by this moment. He has always said that “even after death I will be with you, continuing to guide you, closer to the Spirit.” To him, the Spirit is more important than himself, than anyone, and we must remember Him always, that He is in everything and is always with us, even though we may forget that sometimes.

Roger was (and still is) continuously guided by the Spirit and even after his bodily death, wanted to do what the Spirit wanted. The Spirit continuously said (and says) that “the body means nothing.” So Roger, guided by the Spirit, wanted his body donated to Science, so as to not to leave any grave site or body to remember, but that we continuously remember the Spirit. Roger’s wishes were carried out in that spirit, to make sure no body, grave, or memorial site was left of his body but that what we learnt by the Spirit and the love we received is remembered and continues forever in our hearts.

The work of the Mission of the Shroud is the same continuation of that love and Roger wanted it to continue. He told us so often that we are the Mission, all of us. We should commit ourselves fully to the work of the Spirit and to continue the Will of God until all are reached. 

Roger Poisson* was called to live a life of evangelical poverty, and the evangelical counsels since 1989. During this time he laboured as a lay apostle among the native peoples (First Nations of Canada), in Winnipeg and especially on the Sandy Bay Reservation. He is most highly regarded, esteemed and loved by the native peoples for his dedication and loving ministry to them and to their cause.

Roger has done what the Lord has asked him to do. He has worked unceasingly since 1989 until his passing on March 6th, 2011, helping anyone with problems, no matter how severe. He did not do the work himself. He received Divine Guidance. Any problem concerning anything can be answered. It is not prophecy. It is the working of God through man to change the hearts of man.

Roger was not paid to do this work. He existed on donations from others. To reach people, his travels on earth had taken Roger around the world and now in spirit he is everywhere. He met with anyone, groups of people, to spread the messages of God. He has recorded many of these messages. Some of them have been typed into book form called, "The Master's Facts", "Supernatural Political Revelations by Self-Denial" and "Words of Wisdom". There have been hundreds of emotional and physical healings which have occurred through the messages. All of this work has been done through a man who slept no more than a few hours each night.

Roger had, and has, a deep devotion to the Sacred Face of Jesus in the Shroud of Turin, and since 1989, he expended much time in studying this image. Hence, the name "Mission of the Shroud". He had done extensive photographic work on the face of Christ from a photograph of the Shroud of Turin. This work has never been done before. Hundreds of spiritual and biblical images have been revealed through the one photograph upon which Roger was guided to work. He was told to enlarge portions of the photograph of the Shroud or to magnify portions of the face in varying levels of intensity. From this guidance, he was given images of Jesus teaching in the temple in Jerusalem, Jesus on the cross, images of Mary, pictures of angels, the infant Jesus, Abraham, the Pope, Mother Theresa, images of "ordinary" people and even a beautiful image of Santa Claus given to him during Christmas Season. Roger was told that the image on the Shroud contains all of the information that humanity needs. It will be understood as a blueprint for humanity.

There are many people in many countries connected to Roger's work as the Mission of the Shroud and the word of God continues to work in people's lives. I know Roger, guided by the Spirit, has touched many hearts and turned many stones. Families, friends, children, adults, Native, Black, White, Oriental, Americans, Canadians, Europeans, Australians, Priests, Nuns, Bishops, daughters, sons, mothers, fathers, sisters, brothers, grandparents, babies, and many, many more people have been moved by the love of God for them and have the realization that ‘Someone’ loves them. Roger did and does love you…forever. He will continuously show you the Father’s love for you, as it was shown and given to him.

Remember in you also lies the continuation of God's Mission, God's love. Each one of us has the ability to love and continue this movement of love. Let us work together and continue this Mission through the love we give to one another.

God Bless all of you. 

In the words of Bishop Roman Danylak:
“Roger Poisson is an authentic Christian who leads a profoundly Christian and Spiritual life in union with the Lord and the Blessed Mother Mary."

*It has been written that Roger Poisson was once a wealthy man. In truth, he had nothing. Today, he is has nothing but is the wealthiest man in the world.

To Whom It May Concern;

I am writing this testimonial on behalf of F. Roger Poisson. Although I met him personally only at the beginning of January 1998, I have had the opportunity over these past several months to come to know his life story and to meet with and to speak to many who have known Roger over the past several years.

Following his conversion experience on Pentecost Sunday, 1989, Roger was called to live a life of evangelical poverty, and evangelical counsels. For the past nine years, he has laboured as a lay apostle among the native peoples (First Nation of Canada), in Winnipeg and especially on the Sandy Bay Reservation. He is most highly regarded, esteemed and loved by the native peoples for his dedication and loving ministry to them and to their cause.

In this time, he has developed a deep devotion to the Sacred Face of Jesus in the Shroud of Turin, and in these past nine years, he has expended much time in studying the image. I am very impressed by the slides and pictures that he has extracted from the image of the Face of Jesus in his possession. I have had the opportunity to observe firsthand his scientific investigation, and can vouchsafe for the integrity of his work.

He has developed a new technique of photography, and he has applied this new technique in the investigation of images of blood, etc. in investigating unsolved crimes. I spoke to the chief of forensic of the Metropolitan Winnipeg Police, who expressed that he was very impressed by the rigorous and scientific method and findings of Mr. Poisson in this investigation.

Mr. Poisson is an authentic Christian who leads a profoundly Christian and spiritual life in deep union with the Lord and the Blessed Mother.

Respectfully yours,
Bishop Roman Danylak
