Homeless sculpture image of Jesus, blanketed, to appear in Washington and several other cities


The Washington Post reports on a sculpture of “homeless Jesus”, a blanketed figure commonly seen in winter on many city sidewalks, now placed in many cities. The work is by Timothy P. Schmalz, story by Sarah Palliam Bailey here .
  
The sculpture appears outside Catholic Charities at 924 G St. in downtown Washington DC.  I’ll try to get a picture as soon as I can.
  
I had some dealings with Catholic Charities on Lemmon Ave. in Dallas back in 1980.  I went in to talk about the Cuban refugee crisis then, and the Hispanic workers said, “Because you say you are gay, that ends the discussion.”

Update:  Feb. 27

Here is the sculpture

in front of Catholic Charities.
