God in the Streets of New York
The monstrance which is used to carry the Blessed Sacrament is one of six that were blessed by Pope John II before his death to mark the celebration of the Year of the Eucharist. “God In The Streets of New York City” depicts the contrast between the everyday chaos of the busy streets — complete with traffic, construction and police cars — and the peaceful presence of Jesus. There is always an opportunity to meet Jesus face to face. It poses the question: Will you recognize him?
