New book—Father at Night


Father at Night is a collection of my personal stories and reflections on the vocation of fatherhood, its challenges, triumphs, defeats, consolations, humour, sorrows and joys lived in circumstances ranging from difficult to impossible.

“… the family seems at times a hospital, a prison, a boarding house and a mental institution. It is all of these and more, of course. It is a place of ‘fearful beauty’, packed to the full with every emotion imaginable, with moments of brilliant illumination and dark squalor, with limitless opportunities for heroism and for sin. … It is the great school of the soul.”  ~ Michael O’Brien
