I am an insignificant Catholic layman sharing the story of my journey on the Trail of the Dogmatic Creed with St. Joan of Arc and St. Thérèse of Lisieux.

I am not a professional Catholic; I do not make my living by promoting the Faith or my own testimony. I have no ties with any publisher or media agent. I have no Church sponsored ministry. I neither ask for nor accept money. The only financial profit I receive is from the sales of my books. However, I am willing, and would be delighted, to speak to your parish or organization for no fee. My only caveat to the above statement regarding money is that assistance with travel expenses would be appreciated.

This site represents my personal inspirations and views. My first two books (Journey to Christendom and Seek First the Kingdom) have received Permission to Publish by the Vicar General from the Archdiocese of Chicago with official declarations of ecclesiastical authority that the material is free from doctrinal and moral error (the other books have not yet been submitted - perhaps one day). However, I do not wish to imply here, or on any other site under my administration, that I am working in an official ministerial capacity. My sites and books are for inspiration, not teaching.

I desire many to join me, none to follow me. We follow Ste. Jehanne d'Arc and Ste. Thérèse de Lisieux on the Trail of the Dogmatic Creed of Roman Catholicism.

My intention is for all of my activities to be in union with our Holy Father, the Pope, and the Magisterium of the Church in a counterrevolutionary hermeneutic of continuity with Sacred Tradition. I strive to be in accord with the spirit and letter of  Title I, Canons 215 and 216, of the Code of Canon Law.
