Madonna House as a Divine Milieu: An Introduction for Visiting Guests

Madonna House, a community of laymen, women and priests, offers an experience of living in a Catholic culture; here Fr. Wild (a member since 1971) emphasizes this one aspect of the community's apostolate: as a temporary place of formation. Written particularly for guests who come to participate in the community's life, Madonna House as a Divine Milieu enables a fuller understanding of what is offered.


A temporary place of formation

From the introduction:

I am writing this book for our guests who may come to participate in our way of life for whatever length of time. I have in mind especially the young people, but I believe it will be helpful for visitors of all ages. My emphasis will be on Madonna House as a temporary place of formation. (My reflections will apply, of course, to those who may choose Madonna House as their vocation.) The book, therefore, has a limited focus and is not an attempt to articulate the fullness of our Madonna House apostolate or spirituality. I wish to emphasize the aspects of our community life in Combermere which our guests will experience.
