5 May 2013, Day 334

"Wounded Angel" by Emily Young 

I used to spend a lot of time on Loyola's campus, working in Cudahy Library when i needed a change of scenery from my own desk, but i haven't been there in a surprisingly long time. I took a stroll through campus today and was amazed at how much construction had been done in the past couple of years. I also hadn't seen this beautiful sculpture outside the Madonna della Strada Chapel before. It commemorates the death of six Jesuit priests during the war in El Salvador in 1989. It's a very powerful and emotional artwork, and its air of transcendent mourning reminds me a bit of my beloved angel in 30th Street Station in Philadelphia. I think i'll make a habit of visiting it more often.
