Fr. Wild explores the relations between Catherine Doherty, the Foundress of Madonna House, and six of the most influential Catholic figures of her time, in essays that bring them to life and illuminate their spirituality. G.K. Chesterton, Dorothy Day, Thomas Merton, Fr. Paul Watson of Graymoor, Jean Vanier, and Vladimir Soloviev all influenced Catherine in significant ways, for her own spiritual journey, and for the Apostolate she founded, and for the life of the Church.
