SILVERSTREAM MONASTERY – WHERE HAS ALL THE MONEY GONE TO ???

A source close to the Monastic Visitation currently being conducted into Silverstream Monastery says the monastery has only enough money to survive for weeks.

But look at these published figures from the Irish Charity Regulator’s site – for 2015, 2015 2016, 2017 and 2018.

In those 5 years the monastery income was Euro 4,065,899.

Their expenditure for the 5 years was Euro 1,696,825

Therefore their profit was Euro 2,369,074.

And this does not include income for 2019 and 2020 which on average would have been Euro 1,626,359.

So income for 7 years was Euro 6,434,973.

Expenditure for 7 years Euro 2,375,555

Total Profit for 7 years Euro 4,059 418

If Silverstream has made Euro 4 million profit in 7 years why are they now broke?

Who spent the 4 million?

What was the 4 million spent on.

I was surprised to hear that they have wine at every lunch and dinner 7 days a week.

Could 8 monks spend 4 million on food and drink in 7 years?

That would be Euro 11,000 plus a week on food and drink?

I wonder how much the monthly and yearly wine bill was?

I have learned that Silverstream has not only been reported to the Gardai but also the Irish Charity Regulator, who are launching an investigation.

Where there is sexual irregularities there are generally financial irregularities also.

One source has told me that Mark Kirby kept a drawer in his office with many thousands of Euros in cash in it?

TOM DENNIHAN of Meath needs to clarify where the Euro 4 million has gone to.

This is money that the Catholic faithful have donated thinking everything was ok.

You can see the wine in this video, from around 9:40. It looks like ordinary supermarket wine (Gallo?). Fr Prior has his own bottle but they seem to be drinking out of used jam jars, so a bit more digging is needed to find the missing millions.

Your ‘theology’ is heretical. Jesus was not present at ‘every one’ of those Masses, because this implies that there is more than one Mass, which in turn suggests that Jesus must sacrifice himself for human redemption, again and again; this is an outright denial of 1 Peter 3: 18.

When Mass today is said, we, as it were, tap into the transcendent nature of that first and only historical Mass 2000 years ago. But were we to do so, faithfully, it should not liturgically be the ‘Extraordinary Form’ offered, nor the ‘Ordinary Form’, but the ritual manner in which it took place back then. And the language of worship would be Hebrew and Aramaic, not English, and certainly not Latin.

I realise that many of the seminary rejects on the blog were ejected before they got to studying dogma and theology, so here’s a little primer, from the Catechism of the Catholic Church, quoting the infallible teachings of the Council of Trent.

1366 The Eucharist is thus a sacrifice because it re-presents (makes present) the sacrifice of the cross, because it is its memorial and because it applies its fruit:

[Christ], our Lord and God, was once and for all to offer himself to God the Father by his death on the altar of the cross, to accomplish there an everlasting redemption. But because his priesthood was not to end with his death, at the Last Supper “on the night when he was betrayed,” [he wanted] to leave to his beloved spouse the Church a visible sacrifice (as the nature of man demands) by which the bloody sacrifice which he was to accomplish once for all on the cross would be re-presented, its memory perpetuated until the end of the world, and its salutary power be applied to the forgiveness of the sins we daily commit.

1367 The sacrifice of Christ and the sacrifice of the Eucharist are one single sacrifice: “The victim is one and the same: the same now offers through the ministry of priests, who then offered himself on the cross; only the manner of offering is different.” “And since in this divine sacrifice which is celebrated in the Mass, the same Christ who offered himself once in a bloody manner on the altar of the cross is contained and is offered in an unbloody manner. . . this sacrifice is truly propitiatory.”

Are you addressing my post at 4.05? You don’t indicate any post, so we are left having to assume one poster or another. It is always helpful to be express in this matter, and to be specific. For arguments sake, I’ll assume that you were indeed addressing my post at 4.05. And I’ll overlook that cheapshot of yours about seminary rejects
I’d bet you figured that qualifying ‘teaching’ adjectivally with ‘infallible’ would pre-empt all further discussion on the ontological nature of Mass. This was your trump card, wasn’t it? Instead, you played a busted flush: bullshit is never infallible.
The Eucharist does not, and cannot, make present the sacrifice of Jesus on the Cross, since this was a concrete event, fixed behavioually in human history (unless time travel was discovered while I was looking the other way). However, what we can do at Mass is unite to that historical event through its transcendent, universal efficacy, a very different, not to mention more logical, act altogether.
Jesus was not a priest. Nor did he refer to himself in any such way. The title ‘priest’ used of Jesus is entirely a theological attribution. On the contrary, the Letter to the Hebrews makes clear that Jesus’ self-offering exposed the utter futility of priestly ‘atonement’; his self-offering, therefore, rendered priesthood absolutely redundant.
Jesus does not offer himself perpetually through the ministry of priests, since this self-offering was, as I said earlier, made concrete in human history; it occurred, therefore, just once, because once was sufficient, as 1 Peter 3: 18 makes clear. To claim that this act is continually, for all time, made through the ministry of priests is to imply either that the act is a work in progress (we are not yet redeemed), or that it must be repeated an infinite number of times. Every day, in fact.
As I said, too, ‘bullshit is never infallible’.

You don’t believe the form of the Mass in Ireland of the first Christian millennium was identical to the post-Tridentine missal of 1570?

Like

@2:44, yes, an Irish Christian from the first millennium would have no difficulty in recognising the Mass celebrated according to the codification of the Missal in 1570. It was not a new Mass, unlike Paul VI’s invention.

“The Order of Mass as found in the 1570 Missal of St. Pius V (1566-1572), apart from minor additions and amplifications, corresponds very closely with the Order established by St. Gregory (d. 604 A.D.).” (Davies)

“All later modifications were fitted into the old arrangement, and the most important parts were not touched. From, roughly, the time of St. Gregory we have the text of the Mass, its order and arrangement, as a sacred tradition that no one has ventured to touch except in unimportant details [until the Second Vatican Council].” (Fortescue)

“Essentially, the Missal of Pius V is the Gregorian Sacramentary; that again is formed from the Gelasian book, which depends on the Leonine collection. We find the prayers of our Canon in the treatise De Sacramentis [of St. Ambrose, c. 340-397] and allusions to it in the IVth century. So our Mass goes back, without essential change, to the age when it first developed out of the oldest liturgy of all.” (Fortescue)

There were Irish priests long before Pope Gregory the Great, and therefore long before his codification (his attempt at uniformity) of the Mass. Clearly then, not every Irish monk would have recognised the Tridentine Mass, either in form or language.

Like

An Irish monk certainly wouldn’t recognise Paul’s New Mass. The difference is that until after Vatican II the Roman Rite had grown organically, its fundamentals unchanged and recognisible down the centuries. The Novus Ordo is a rupture, a rushed committee job, rejected by the majority of the faithful in the European heartlands of the Roman Rite, who have voted with their feet.
