I am a Ph.D. candidate in systematic theology at Fordham University and a retreat minister. I previously worked as a patient advocate for a head and neck cancer practice.

I specialize in the theology of the Holy Spirit, and also focus on ecclesiology, medicine and religion, and religion and racial justice. My spirituality is both Ignatian and "charismatic"—I was deeply formed by a Filipino Charismatic prayer community, but my vision is to recognize the various ways that people can embrace life in the Spirit by translating the graces of the Catholic Charismatic Renewal for the church catholic. Incidentally, that prayer group was founded by a Filipino Jesuit. I particularly enjoy working with college and young adult professional communities. My wife and I live in the Bronx. My hobbies include playing guitar, running, and cooking.

I hold a Certificate in Spiritual Direction from the Creighton University Graduate School of Theology. I give one-on-one spiritual direction as well as days of recollection and retreats, especially for retired people and people approaching retirement. I specialize in ministry to the aging. I am the author of God Isn't Finished With Me Yet: Discovering the Spiritual Graces of Later Life (Loyola Press 2018). I experienced a late call to this ministry in retirement, after a career as a lawyer and judge. I have also been an active member of the Ignatian Volunteer Corps for 19 years.

Rev. Thomas Massaro, S.J.
A Jesuit of the Northeast Province and holder of a doctorate in Christian social ethics, I have taught courses in moral theology at three Jesuit institutions of higher learning for over two decades. I am currently Professor of Moral Theology at Fordham University, where I also serve as Associate Director of the Center for Ethics Education. My areas of expertise include Catholic social teaching, the role of religion in American public life and developing a spirituality of justice, peace and social engagement in our pluralistic society. My most recent work has focused on the contribution of Pope Francis, who advances Catholic social thought on pivotal issues such as economic inequality, justice for refugees and peacemaking in a distinctively Ignatian key. I describe the Jesuit roots of the ethical commitments of Pope Francis in my 2018 book "Mercy in Action: The Social Teachings of Pope Francis."

Marina McCoy
I write on Ignatian spirituality for Loyola Press.

The last topic can also be adapted to help a parish think about staying in the church in the midst of the abuse crisis. I am available for hourlong talks followed by discussion, and only very rarely for retreats, but usually need to schedule well in advance due to also having an academic career.

Rev. Dennis McNally, SJ, Ph.D.
I paint from dreams and prayer experience. My work is large, installation-size (mostly 6'-4'). They chronicle a half century of trying to discern God in All Things: eucharist, Buddhism, 9-11, the subjugation of slaves, political cruelty, the hope for creation, Christ embedded in human suffering, the interior connection with a "still, small, voice," landscapes, skyscapes, and universe images from NASA photos. I have taught thousands of students in high school and university, and have been at St. Joseph's University almost half a century. Still teaching full time, I do direction, sacraments for those who ask, and have written books on priesthood, art for church, and the history of the liturgical environment (architectural history).

Fr. John Predmore, S.J.
I give retreats using painting/artwork/creativity as way of helping people find a prayer style unique to their spirituality. I use various meditative techniques to help a person free up their imagination and desires so that they can bring their hopes, desires, and suffering to the Lord. I use this model in a class I teach at Creighton University's Masters in Spirituality program. I also give retreats called "Creating Loving Conversations," using mindfulness practices as a way to listen deeply and to respond with compassion and understanding. Using an examination of unconsciousness and some breathing techniques, we learn how to acknowledge our suffering and the suffering of others.
