One of the key components of the Catechesis of the Good Shepherd atrium is a statue of Jesus the Good Shepherd. We had one on our wishlist.
We got it today, from a beautiful soul.
Here is the note which accompanied the statue in its package:
I go to atrium in Cleveland. I did jobs for my mom to earn money to buy this statue for your school. Love, Theresa.
Thank you, Theresa.
From the bottom of our hearts, thank you. Your generosity, love, and dedication to help others inspires us.
Here is a picture of the statue Theresa worked so hard to buy for our atrium.
The framed card next to it is a quote from Saint Teresa of Calcutta that Noëlle and I keep on our mantle:
I have found the paradox, that if you love until it hurts, there can be no more hurt, only more love.
The children of Steubenville who see this statue and come to love Jesus the Good Shepherd more because of it will have you to thank, Theresa.
