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."
