Apostolic Farming

Healing the Earth

“It doesn’t do to make the earth angry,” said the Russian peasant. “It will punish us if we do.”

Long before concern for the environment became an urgent world issue, Catherine Doherty, foundress of the Madonna House Apostolate, drew on her childhood experience to incarnate the Christian vision in the community’s small farm, St. Benedict’s Acres.

In this remarkably prophetic book, she raises the issue of stewardship--of respect for animals, the earth, for machinery and for all creation. Farming, she tells us, is a way of walking with God.

“Last fall, we took a scenic drive to Madonna House to meet the people at St. Benedict Acres… We were warmly greeted, and invited to have a big lunch. After lunch there was a short spiritual reading and then the men dispersed back to work in the field… We were touched by a deep peace of God’s love with this community. We were impressed how this community village is also quite self-sufficient. The tour was very enjoyable… the warmth shared from the people was very easy to sense and the cross on the peak of the hill gave me a peaceful feeling of how we can work the land in harmony.” — Ruth Freeman, The Draft Horse Connection
