He teaches pastoral psychology and ascetical-mystical theology at Iona and Fordham, and at St. Joseph's, Immaculate Conception, and Maryknoll Seminaries. The Preface has been written by Catherine de Hueck Doherty, the founder and Director General of Madonna House. She is author of such well-known books as Poustinia and The Gospel Without Compromise.
