Additional information

Grade Level

Fr. Robert Wild explores the relations between Catherine Doherty, the Foundress of Madonna House, and six of the most influential Catholic figures of her time in a series of essays that bring them to life and illuminate their spirituality.

“Anyone who enjoys reading G. K. Chesterton or Vladimir Soloviev will delight in this book; the chapters devoted to these two authors alone are more than enough to make it worthwhile. This said, the other chapters provide wonderful insights into the lives of well known Catholic figures and shed new light on the life and spirit of Catherine Doherty.” ~ Richard Bastien, Editor, The Canadian Observer

Fr. Robert Wild lives at Combermere, Ontario. He has been a member of the Madonna House community, founded by Catherine Doherty, since 1971. He is the author of several books of meditations and of a trilogy on Catherine Doherty’s spirituality. Fr. Wild is the editor of “Compassionate Fire: the Letters of Thomas Merton & Catherine de Hueck Doherty” and of “Comrades Stumbling Along: The Friendship of Catherine de Hueck Doherty and Dorothy Day as Revealed Through Their Letters.” His essay “Was G.K. Chesterton a Mystic?” appears in “The Holiness of G.K. Chesterton.”
