Oh, how happy I would be to live alone in a desert with that image!

MANTLE 

Accept me for thy servant and receive me under thy mantle, O Mother of Mercy.

GLORIOSA 

O Queen of all the Virgin choir,
Enthroned above the starry sky;
Who with pure milk from thy own breast
Thy own Creator didst supply.

The statue of Our Lady of the Garden Enclosed in the hermitage chapel of Warfhuizen, the Netherlands.

The hermitage of Warfhuizen was founded in 2001 as the dwelling of a Catholic consecrated hermit. It revived the tradition of Dutch hermits that originated in the Counter Reformation.

As is typical of Dutch hermitages, the one in Warfhuizen includes a chapel for public devotion.
