(LifeNews.com) The Catholic University of America installed a pro-life sculpture on its Washington, D.C. campus Wednesday to remind passersby of unborn babies’ value.
World-renowned Canadian sculptor Timothy Schmalz said he created the piece, titled “Advent,” as a National Life Monument to celebrate every human life. The sculpture is a bronze and stainless steel depiction of the Virgin Mary cradling unborn baby Jesus in her womb.
“We have to celebrate human life and that’s what this sculpture is saying,” Schmalz told the Catholic News Agency at the dedication ceremony Wednesday.
