Homeless Jesus

What the cathedrals in Toronto and New York rejected, was accepted at a Jesuit school of theology at the University of Toronto.

The artist:

It was very upsetting because the rectors liked it, but when it got to the administration, people thought it might be too controversial or vague.

What do you think? Too radical a depiction of Matthew 25:31-46? Inappropriate, as the big city archbishops suggested?

Regis College dean Rev Gordon Rixon:

The mission of our college is to promote critical theology, with advocacy for justice and an appreciation of beauty.
