UPDATED: December 9, 2018
I have a blog page on the National Catholic Register website now, working with their editor to publish articles based upon my research into Church history, particularly looking at issues of religious freedom and the lessons of history. Please see updates here.
Gilbert, the publication of the American Chesterton Society, will conclude my two part explanation of G.K. Chesterton's counter-factual essay, “If Don John of Austria Had Married Mary Queen of Scots”, a consideration of what might have been in the November/December issue (print only; membership/subscription required). The first part of the essay was in the September/October 2018 issue.
The National Catholic Register has published my review of a new compilation of Newman sermons for Advent and Christmas! Blessed John Henry Newman will likely be canonized next year: date TBD!!
My review of Inside the Mind of Thomas More: The Witness of His Writings by Louis W. Karlin and David R. Oakley (Scepter Publishers) was published in the June 10, 2018 issue of the National Catholic Register and is available online here.
I'm pleased to announce that I'll have two pieces published in the January/February 2018 issues of the Saint Austin Review! The first is an article on the movie Green Dolphin Street, offering a Chestertonian interpretation of the vocations of marriage and religious life: “The Pattern of the Cross”. Lana Turner and Donna Reed are two sisters who learn about God's plans for their happiness. I wrote it a few years ago, so I'm eager to see it in print!
The second piece is a book review of Philip Campbell's Heroes & Heretics of the Reformation, which I just submitted in November.
My interview with Professor Brad S. Gregory, author of The Unintended Reformation and Rebel in the Ranks, was published by the National Catholic Register in the October 29, 2017 issue.
My review of Holiness in a Secular Age: The Witness of Cardinal Newman, by Father Juan Vélez was published in the October 1, 2017 print edition of the National Catholic Register and is available online here.
My latest article in Tudor Life: The Tudor Society Magazine (Members Only) is about the Pilgrimage of Grace: I look at the terms in that name and the banner the pilgrims marched under, the Four Wounds of Christ. It was chosen as the Top Article in the October issue!!
In the September/October issue of OSV's The Catholic Answer Magazine, I answer the question "What Is a Papal Bull?" and explain the other official documents popes have used through the centuries to communicate with the faithful, the hierarchy, and the world!
I also write for other publications and have articles published in these periodicals:
~ “Henry VIII’s ‘Achievement’ What was the Dissolution of the Monasteries?”, The Catholic Answer Magazine, November/December 2011
