Shepherd and Lamb

Jesus comforts and protects us, his lambs.

Bronze, 30 feet long, 5 feet wide and 8 feet tall. Installed at the Pastoral Center, Catholic Diocese of Greensburg, Pennsylvania. Jesus, holding a lamb, walking His sheep, approaches a wolf. Following behind on this road are three shepherds from the Old Testament: Abel, David and Moses. This piece stands outside the Bishop's offices, and each of the Shepherds holds a shepherd's staff, the crosier, the symbol of the bishop's office.

Wolf Face

"I have never seen a wolf in a Good Shepherd painting or sculpture, but if there were no wolves, there would be no need for shepherds."

Three Shepherds

Three shepherds from the Old Testament follow at the end of the path, Abel, the first to offer a sacrifice to God; David, the shepherd who became a king; and Moses, who brought the people to the promised land.
