I am a priest of the Archdiocese of New York, ordained on December 18, 1963. After having taught nearly full-time for 45 years–three at the College of New Rochelle, ten at St. Joseph’s Seminary, Dunwoodie, and thirty-two at The Catholic University of America, I am now retired and able to devote myself to continued research, writing, and lecturing. I assist at Sunday Masses at St. John the Evangelist Church, Goshen, N.Y.
In my teaching and writing I have concentrated on ecclesiology, modern Catholic theology, the thought of John Henry Newman and of John Courtney Murray, and the history and theology of the Second Vatican Council. I am the editor of the English edition of the five-volume History of Vatican II.
