'Homeless Jesus:' the new statue installed in the Vatican

2016-03-26

You will not recognize his face. He could be one among many who roam the streets without a roof for the night. However, he is nothing less than Christ. The remains of the crucifixion are what the holes in his feet reveal.

This is the new bronze statue the Pope blessed during the Jubilee of Mercy. It will remain in the Vatican, alongside the Pope's charity offices, dedicated to the poor in the area.

The life-size piece of work was crafted by Canadian sculptor Timothy P. Schmalz. He says what moved him to do it was a homeless person he found sleeping on a bench during the Christmas holidays.

It is not the only sculpture by this specialized artist that reflects powerful images, scenes or themes related to the Gospel.
