First Contemplative Monastery in the Far East
A True Joy From Heaven Awaited for more than 20 Years!
The holy mass of the inauguration of the monastery was presided by the bishop of Hsinchu, Mons. Lee, who had invited the contemplative sisters, and was concelebrated by Mons. Liu Tan Wei, accompanied by 12 priests, among them 5 of the IVE priests missioned in Taiwan, and the provincial, Father Miguel Soler.
Altogether about 160 people participated in the Mass. During the Mass, before the final blessing, the contemplatives read a prayer to Our Lady of Sheshan, patroness of the monastery, and offered her a bouquet of flowers. Mother Victorias offered Mons. Lee a Cross of Matara from Argentina, a replica of the original, also carved in mistol. After Mass, the two bishops blessed the facilities of the monastery, accompanied only by the contemplatives and Mother Victorias. Afterward they celebrated with a lunch and a small show in the parish facilities. It was a true joy from heaven, awaited for more than 20 years!!!…
