Work continues in the green house

May 5th First Saturday
Today we worked and prayed many rosaries together.

Our very less than well Brother Dominic Mary, seated above, spends the time with us giving out the Rosary while everyone answers up.... the time passes quickly with prayer and work going hand in hand together: Our Father who art in heaven hallowed be Thy name ......Give us this day our daily bread and forgive us our trespasses.......

The shingle and sand together, barrow after barrow, Hail Mary following Hail Mary all the way to the: Glory be to the Father and to the Son and to the Holy Ghost. As it was in the beginning is now and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.

Father Anthony striding out to the tune of the "Holy Mary" looking for a saw to cut the raised bed boxing.....

Yes, of course, the noise of the saw should have been drowned out by the Brothers' Rosary chorus..... but... when prayers meet resistance they triumph through perseverance... O my Jesus forgive us our sins, save us from the fires of hell and lead all souls to heaven, especially those in most need of Thy mercy.

More sand and shingle arrive - the Rosary goes on.... that truckload of sand is nothing compared with the quantity of graces that come from prayer and work done as an act of reparation to the Immaculate Heart of Mary....

Nearly there for today...

The Rosaries came to an end and in the silence we all inspected the progress....

There was Rosary and there was work, the second day.... the raised beds begin to take shape....... in Our Lady's Garden.
May 4th
The project of the day: to prepare the raised beds in the greenhouse.

On the site are L-R: Brothers Xavier, Wolf Maria, Nicodemus Mary, Cyril, Dominic and Filip

Brother Paul Mary inspects the site for the raised beds: "We're going to need a lot of stones and sand."

Brothers Rafail and Cyril securing the foundations for the posts.

The first pipes go in.

Brother Nicodemus Mary levels and passes the workmanship.

Brother Columba Maria hard at it.

"Alleluia!" as the pile of stones and sand is reduced. On the job are Dominic, Brothers Roman, Xavier and Columba Maria.
