Synopsis: The earth is weeping... how can we heal it?
The heavy treads of our modern machinery pound the earth into submission our society has become expert at efficiently taking from the earth, but what do we give the earth in return? Is this the proper stewardship of the earth that God has entrusted us with?
Concerns are growing about genetically engineered superfood and pesticide use.
Animals are being cloned for use as organ donors, and human cloning may be just around the corner.
The panic over Mad Cow Disease is a chilling example of the real price which we may all pay for cows being fed cheaply instead of nutritiously.
In this remarkably prophetic work, Catherine Doherty helps shed some light on these important issues, with practical, down-to-earth guidance for farmers everywhere whether you are a backyard gardener or industry professional.
Drawing on experience of her father's extensive farm in twentieth century Russia, Catherine Doherty pleads for integrity in making the earth fecund with healthy foods. Written from the perspective of a small farm named "St. Benedict Acres" developed by and for Madonna House (the community founded by the author), this book urges farmers to integrate Christianity into their farming, into the care of their portion of the Lord's vineyard.
About the Author: Catherine Doherty used her heritage as a Russian Christian as a matrix for responding to the needs of Christian life and work in the modern world. Her own personal pilgrimage led her to be poor with the poor Christ in the slums of Toronto and in Harlem; and later to the establishing of the world-wide Madonna House Apostolate. A dedicated wife and mother, Catherine was also a prolific writer of hundreds of articles, a best-selling author of dozens of books, a renowned national speaker, and a pioneer of social justice. Catherine Doherty's cause for canonization as a saint is now under consideration by the Catholic Church.
