Epiphany: To make manifest.
Original commentary on events in the world and the Catholic Church (from my perspective, of course); and original reporting on things which I believe are either ignored or underreported in the secular or Catholic press.
I've been in the Catholic press since 1985, starting at what was then the Catholic Bulletin (it’s now The Catholic Spirit) in the Archdiocese of St. Paul-Minneapolis (for an entire six months). But the journalism bug had bit and wouldn’t let go, so I started freelance writing in the National Catholic Register in 1990. Besides the Register, I've been published in Our Sunday Visitor, Inside the Vatican, Catholic World Report, Columbia and This Rock, and ghost written in New Covenant and Be. I also served for four years as editor of what was the Times Review in the Diocese of La Crosse and is now The Catholic Times.
I’m a graduate of Franciscan University of Steubenville (1984) with a B.A. in Theology. I like to keep my life sane and simple, so I spend much time at home with my wife of 20 years and five children.
