Homeless Jesus

I was walking in downtown San Antonio  near St. Mary’s street and I found this beautiful statue:

The statue had a sign above it reading:

“Homeless Jesus”

By Sculptor Timothy P. Schmalz, 2015

“In Truth I tell you in so far as you did this to one of the least of these brothers of mine, you did it to me”.
Matthew 25:40

Honoring:

Immaculate & The People of St. Mary’s Catholic Church

Edward and Linda Speed Whose Family have been members for over 100 years.


In this day and age, we need to remember our fellow humans and try to help them as much as possible. Such a statue, right in downtown San Antonio is such a reminder. If God blessed us with many gifts, the least we can do (apart from being grateful), is to share our blessings with others.
