Truly, I say to you, as you did it to one of the least of these my brothers, you did it to me.

  1. This image reminds me of a section of Lindisfarne Community’s prayer office which suggests a prayer for “All who have no one to pray for them”…….

    A powerful image. Thanks for posting it.

  2. You’re welcome, Senan.

    There are a lot of people who are marginalized, lonely, and suffering. And sad to say they are forgotten. It’s indeed a powerful image to remind us to remember them and pray for them, and do what we can to help them…

  3. What a remarkable sculpture. This time of year, it’s good to be reminded. The first serious cold front of the year arrived today, and all around the city there are people who are shivering. Some will find shelter at various places. Others will not. All need someone to care – and to help provide food and warmth.

  4. It’s the time of the year that we are preparing to celebrate the coming of Christ. It’s indeed good to be reminded that Christ dd not come only 2000 years ago, born in a manger in Bethlehem. He continues to come in the person of people who are marginalized in our society – the poor, the homeless, the sick, the lonely. the hungry. It’s time for us to remember them, and help them when we can…
