He taught at Spring Hill College, Loyola University in New Orleans, the Pontifical Gregorian University and the Pontifical University of St. Thomas, both in Rome, and at St. John’s University in New York City. He is the author of Ascent to Being, a study of the philosophy of communion in the writings of Gabriel Marcel, the noted French philosopher, dramatist, and essayist. He is also the author of The Gods of Atheism, a study of modern atheism as it developed among philosophers and some theologians from the eighteenth century to present times. Dedicated to Pope Paul VI with his approval and enhanced with a laudatory preface by John Cardinal Wright, this work had great success. He published many articles in journals and magazines — L’Osservatore Romano, Thought, The New Scholasticism, National Review, Homiletic and Pastoral Review, the New York Times, Triumph, Human Events, Christian Order, Social Digest, National Catholic Register, Men of the South, et al.
