Robert A. Wild

Robert A. Wild is a priest of the Madonna House community in Combermere, Ontario—a community of laywomen, laymen, and priests founded by Catherine de Hueck Doherty. He helped in the editing of Catherine de Hueck Doherty's early works and now serves as Postulator for her cause for canonization.


Catherine de Hueck Doherty (1896-1985) was born in Russia in 1896 and emigrated to Canada in 1921. In 1938 she established Friendship House in Harlem, New York—an interracial center that distributed goods to the poor and conducted lectures and discussion groups to promote racial understanding. After hearing Doherty talk at St. Bonaventure University in 1941, Thomas Merton came to Harlem and the two became friends. Doherty later founded the Madonna House community in Combermere, Ontario. She lived there until her death in 1985, and her cause was opened in 1994. She has been given the title Servant of God.


Thomas Merton (1915-1968) is widely acclaimed as one of the most influential spiritual masters of the twentieth century. A monk, poet, spiritual writer, and social activist, he is perhaps best known for his spiritual autobiography, The Seven Storey Mountain.
