Praying to Saint Joseph for Silverstream Priory

San_Jose_ O glorious Saint JOSEPH, thou art our advocate and our defender, our father and our friend, who on the word of the angel speaking to thee in the night, didst put fear aside to take MARY, thy Virgin Bride into thy home, and, even in poverty and in exile, didst provide security for JESUS, the blessed Fruit of her womb.

Thou art the good provider upon whose resources and generosity we rely. Obtain for us, then, the funds required to renovate Silverstream Priory and to maintain it for years to come in security and in peace, in the beauty of holiness, and in perpetual adoration of the Most Holy Sacrament of the Altar.

O Joseph, first adorer of the Sacred Humanity of the Word, thou art not indifferent to His designs upon Silverstream Priory and upon those sons of Saint Benedict who, by His grace alone, must struggle to make it a school of the Lord’s service, a sanctuary of adoration for all, and a haven of peace for priests.

Humble and powerful Saint Joseph, who didst appear at Knock, together with the Mother of God, with Saint John the Beloved Disciple, and with the Lamb of Sacrifice, thy mission in Ireland is far from ended. Visit Silverstream Priory. Provide for our fathers and brothers as thou hast provided for so many in the past, and we shall publish abroad the wonders obtained through thy intercession to the glory of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost, one God, forever and ever.  Amen.
