Since we are, in this year of consecrated life, focusing more intensely on the sacrament of Baptism, she made that the special focus of her artistry. Everything comes from Christ, the center, and from his pierced heart. The green plants are fed by the flowing waters (to the left), and the "fruits" produced by grace are manifest in gold.
The novices continued the theme by creating a flowing fountain next to the candle stand.
