An Easter Card from Silverstream Priory

Last summer, Silverstream Priory in Ireland launched a new website for its online store, the Cenacle Press, and I am sure our readers will be interested in exploring what it has to offer, from Catholic books from dozens of publishers to items made by hand by the monks themselves. Here are a couple of interesting videos from their YouTube channel; the first shows the steps of the process of making a very nice block print of a Paschal Agnus Dei motif, which can be purchased as an Easter card, a once-common tradition that should definitely be revived.

And the second shows the making of a rosary, with an explanation of the symbolism behind the knots with which it is tied together.
