He was a longtime Professor of Moral and Systematic Theology at Sacred Heart Major Seminary in Detroit and a frequent guest on Catholic radio, including Kresta in the Afternoon and Catholic Connection.

Every day we face moral decisions that aren’t necessarily outlined in the Bible. Do I call in “sick” to work on a day when I just need a break? Is it immoral to break the speed limit? We’ll discuss these questions and more.
