Carmelite Events

Visiting Our Lady of the Martyrs Shrine, Auriesville, NY

Sister Helena - Sunday, September 20, 2015

 by Sister Katherine Theresa Twitchell, O.Carm.

A "Homeless Jesus" was  on display at the Shrine of Our Lady of Martyrs for the 130th anniversary of the North American Shrine in Auriesville, NY. Renewal Sisters, Novices and Postulant visited the shrine and were all very moved by the life size sculpture of the "Homeless Jesus." Timothy Schmaltz who is the artist of the statue was present at the celebration and telethon. Timothy explained that the sculpture which was inspired by the Gospel message in Matthew 25 suggests Christ being with the most marginalized in our society. This sculpture will be in its way to NYC next week to be blessed by Pope Francis.
