About a half a ton, but He ain’t heavy. He’s my Brother.
That method didn’t work. We thought about cranes, the works. Finally we figured it out. A special machine. Brute force. Prayers.
A caption for the statue? “Welcome home!” to those who have been away all too long. Is Jesus trustworthy? This statue also correctly provides instruction on trustworthiness: there are wounds, large and deep. Yes, Jesus laid down His life, Innocent for the guilty, to take us up in life for eternity.
This is the Sacred Heart of our Holy Redeemer.

Oh Father… you follow your last post (which made me weepingly sad) with this post. Tears of joy! Deo gratias.
I recall that there is an Egyptian obelisk standing in St. Peter’s square that I read was there to “stand witness to Christ.” I have never really bought that explanation. No matter how it is adorned, it is still a monument to Caesar that was moved to its current location.
Who thought, “you know what we need, right here, that would be perfect?” Honestly, I don’t get it.
I mean, it smacks of a mosque at ground zero in NYC. Hyperbole, I know.
Your statue says it all, Father. Perfect!
