"Fragility of Life" (Barbara Schwarz, OP, of the Sisters of St. Dominic of Amityville, N.Y.)

"We are blessed to be alive.
Not every egg makes it.
Is this fallen one a discards of lost possibilities
Or what remains after one has flown to the heavens.
Where is your shell?"

- Dominican Sr. Barbara Schwarz, whose gallery in the Ministry of Preaching Through the Arts of the Sisters of St. Dominic can be viewed at
