St Beuno's; Part Five; Capel y coed

The Woodland Chapel.
The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us. John 1:14.

The vestmant press at the back of the Chapel.

Through the front entrance, left down the corridor before it bends left again, you find the Woodland Chapel - Capel y coed, where the Blessed Sacramant is perpetually exposed in a circular glass monstrance surrounded by plants and framed by the most beautiful window through which, are the woods. The Capel y coed is a place of tranquility and prayer. Christ’s great love for us was shown when he was crucified on the cross to pay the penalty for our sins and give us eternal life. He loves us without limit, and offers Himself to us in the Holy Sacrament of the Mass. Can we not give Jesus a few minutes of love and adoration in return?

Tantum ergo Sacramentum
Veneremur cernui:
Et antiquum documentum
Novo cedat ritui:Praestet fides supplementum
Sensuum defectui.

Genitori, Genitoque
Laus et iubilatio,
Salus, honor, virtus quoque
Sit et benedictio:
Procedenti ab utroque
Compar sit laudatio.
