Many already know of the sculptures by Timothy Schmalz such as “Homeless Jesus” and “Angels Unaware” – a monument to migrants and refugees, unveiled at St. Peter’s Square on World Day of Migrants and Refugees, in 2019.
Timothy, who describes himself as attempting to spread the challenging message of Jesus through sculpture, is currently working on a new and timely sculpture titled “Health Care Prayer”. This piece shows a health care worker, like the millions daily working in our hospitals, in a mask and other protective gear during the current Covid-19 pandemic, kneeling over the Earth, praying with an angel standing behind them.
