4) Early writings While I was at the seminary I took my first tentative steps in writing on issues of moral theology for publication. Again, the personal element comes in here. I had first got to know Michael Richards while I was in Rome. We both lodged at the Beda College. It was Michael who made possible the publication of my doctoral dissertation, Conscience: Dictator or Guide? (1967) in a series he was editing for Geoffrey Chapman. When he became the Editor of The Clergy Review he began to encourage me to publish in that periodical and later invited me on to its Editorial Board.

It was Michael who made possible the publication of my doctoral dissertation, Conscience: Dictator or Guide? (1967) in a series he was editing for Geoffrey Chapman. When he became the Editor of The Clergy Review he began to encourage me to publish in that periodical and later invited me on to its Editorial Board. I have never forgotten my first piece. It was in two parts and entitled ‘The Authority of the Church’s Moral Teaching’ (The Clergy Review, 1967, pp. 682-694 & pp. 938-949). I showed it to my predecessor and former moral theology teacher, Paddy Hanrahan, who was still on the staff.

In the course of my personal odyssey I have been fortunate to have had five books published. Sadly they are all now out of print. The first was my doctoral dissertation, written prior to Vatican II. All the others were attempts to express as clearly as I could where I felt the reception of Vatican II was taking the Church, especially in its moral theology and pastoral practice. Hence, they played an important role in my personal odyssey. Moreover, in addition to contributing chapters to various books, I have also had the privilege of having numerous articles published in the following journals and periodicals in the UK and Ireland, The Tablet, The Furrow, The Clergy Review, The Month, Priest and People, New Blackfriars, The Way, and the supplement to The Way.
