"In the cleft of the rock" (Barbara Schwarz, OP, of the Sisters of St. Dominic of Amityville, N.Y.)

Title: In the cleft of the rock

"The climb may be difficult
The sky is witness.
One step at a time
Will I be able to balance
And follow the way
To an unknown future."

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