Hermit for Hire

Help Wanted: A job posted to Facebook comes with scenic housing, but you’d better be prepared to “leave all uncivil or immoral activity outside.” The role: “hermit” of Our Lady of the Rock, Mont-roig del Camp, Catalonia, Spain. Responsibilities include “all the proper functions of a hermit,” such as “guarding and looking after” the religious site, which was mentioned in writing as far back as 1299. The job also involves showing tourists around, so if you know Our Lady of the Rock’s history and speak Catalan, this special opportunity could be yours if you move quickly: the deadline is August 31. (AC/Local Spain)
. . . Do the “proper functions of a hermit” include posting want ads on Facebook?
