Gratitude

I am profoundly grateful to Our Lord for bringing me to such a beautiful place on His earth. The view of the Irish Sea in the distance lifts the heart to God. The entire property was dedicated to Saint Thérèse of the Child Jesus by the Brothers of Saint of John of God in 1940. She has watched over it, kept it for us, and led us to it. We ask her now to obtain the funds necessary to pass from a lease to purchase. This means raising 600,000 Euros. Might there not be six benefactors willing to offer 100,000 Euros each?

In the Radiance of the Eucharistic Face of Jesus

The monastery and property are destined to become a place of beauty, silence, healing, and peace, not only for the monastic community, but especially for the priests from near and far who will make their way here in search of the Face of Christ. The splendour of Our Lord's Eucharistic Face radiates over the entire property.

Saint Thérèse

Adoration of the Eucharistic Face of Jesus in the little monastic church of Silverstream Priory, long dedicated to Saint Thérèse of the Child Jesus will be, without any doubt, pleasing to The Little Flower who wrote:

Divine Jesus, here truly is the ultimate limit of thy love; after having made visible to feeble creatures thy adorable Face, the brightness of which even the seraphim cannot bear, thou wishest to hide it beneath a veil even thicker than that of human nature . . . but Jesus, I see the splendour of Thy countenance radiant in the Host.

Silverstream Priory, under the patronage of Our Lady of the Cenacle and Saint Thérèse of the Child Jesus and of the Holy Face, is a place of great natural beauty. The radiance of Our Lord's Eucharistic Face, contemplated and adored here, will make it a place of supernatural beauty as well. Where there is beauty, there is healing, because all created beauty here below, that of earth, and sea, and sky, and stars, suggests that, behind it all and before it all, there is an Uncreated Beauty who yearns to show us His Face.
