Here are some photos of some of the works we did a few days ago.

Br. Yousef Marie, F.SS.R. painting the statue of Saint Joseph.

We decided to put up another statue in the shrine on our pier. Fr. Anthony Mary, F.SS.R. brings the statue to the pier.

Br. Nicodemus Mary, F.SS.R. and Br. Martin Mary, F.SS.R. crack open the crate.

The statue is very heavy and difficult to move into place...

Fr. Anthony at the controls of the JCB.

With great care the strap is romoved and the statue pulled back into place.

May Christ the King ever reign on Papa Stronsay!

What a beautiful statue!

Glory be to Thee, O Jesus,
Supreme over all secular authorities;
And glory be to the Father and
The loving Spirit through endless ages.

Just a quick word to compliment you for all your work and for a very beautiful statue of Christ the King.

Dear Fathers and Brothers

Your entrance was already beautiful and felt so peaceful and holy but this magnificent statue will enhance it even further.
God Bless you all

I must come and see this beautiful statue for myself. I have always had a great devotion to Christ the King.

So lovely! Where do you find these statues?? They must cost a fortune! Hopefully the Orkney winter weather will not destroy the gold paint.

I loved the photo with the arms coming out of the statue hole hahaha!

I keep praying that a big Sacred Heart of Jesus statue will fall from the sky and land in our garden. (Without squashing anything important.)

Your monastery is stunning - I can't believe what you all have done there on that wee island! Do keep posting PICTURES!!

God bless!
