Thanks be to God and Our Lady and thank you to the very kind friends who helped me out today. One of them was a Traditional Latin Mass loving blog reader who travelled all the way down from Croydon to help build the shed. I have been to a retreat centre in the region in which the Holy Mass is said in something that looks like rather like a shed. I don't think it would be fitting for a priest to celebrate Mass here, but a sprinkling of holy water and a blessing for the allotment would be good.
Next I need to order a massive bag of manure from a local farm and dig it in to improve the soil, collect an archway I've bought for Our Lady and plant some roses around her. I also have a cheap, plastic greenhouse which I have purchased that needs to go up in order for propagation to take place.
All in all, however, the hermitage is now ready. Truly, this allotment, she is starting to become a pearl of great price. I'm hoping that Our Lady of Whitehawk will appear and make this plot a popular pilgrimage destination with a miraculous water feature and I'll have recouped the money I have squandered on this small piece of land. All I need now is a vision!
