Most were first published as part of his nationally-syndicated column appearing in
Catholic Newspapers during his term as Director of The Christophers, New York,
NY. The syndicated column continued, though, even in retirement until his last one
which was completed in October and published in November 2019. These have
been scanned from the originals, in the order placed in his scrapbooks through the
years. On many of the earliest ones -- no publication date was retained.
