Dr. Johan van Parys shares about “Let the Oppressed Go Free,” a sculpture by world renowned Canadian sculptor Timothy Schmalz that is installed on the plaza in front of The Basilica of Saint Mary through June 2024. Saint Josephine Bakhita is depicted in “Let the Oppressed Go Free” as opening a trapdoor, freeing figures that represent victims of all kinds of human-trafficking. Cardinal Czerny, the Vatican’s Prefect of the Dicastery for Promoting Integral Human Development, commissioned “Let the Oppressed Go Free” to draw attention to the evil of human trafficking.
