A statue on the campus of the University of La Sabana (Colombia)

At the beginning of the 2007 academic year, students, professors, and staff at La Sabana University were present for the installation of a statue of St. Josemaría Escriva in one of the central plazas of the campus. It was paid for by the Fund of the Employees of the University as a manifestation of gratitude and affection to the person who inspired the institution.

The bronze statue is the work of Arturo Guerrero of Ecuador. It is life-sized and weighs approximately five hundred and fifty pounds.

The artist wanted to show St. Josemaría speaking with an expressive gesture of his hands and arms, as if encouraging his listeners to practice what he is telling them. His face has his habitual slight smile.

The statue was blessed by the Vice Chancellor of the university, Msgr. Hernan Salcedo Plazas, on January 19, 2007.
