An accomplished violinist and wrestler, Fr. Joseph studied medicine and traveled to Medjugorje in 1988, where he was inspired to enter the seminary. In 1991 he obtained a BA in Philosophy and was awarded the Kilburn Award. While assigned for 15 years in Italy, he studied Italian, Greek, Hebrew, Latin and other languages. He obtained a BA, an STL and an STD (Ph.D.) in Theology, with specialization in patristics, dogma and mysticism.
Fr. Joseph was one of four selected students to receive a grant from the Pontifical Biblicum University of Rome to study theology in Israel. While in Rome he assisted the exorcist of Rome, Fr. Gabriel Amorth, and has written several books on prophecy and revelation. He has translated numerous theological works into English and has authored five publications.
Fr. Joseph’s first contact with the writings of the Italian mystic Luisa Piccarreta occurred over twenty years ago, while he was making a holy hour before the Blessed Sacrament in a Trappist monastery. By a stroke of providence, there lay on the empty pew before him a volume of Luisa. He read it and returned it to its place. A senior nun approached Joseph and asked him if he knew Italian so he might translate Luisa’s works into English. Joseph accepted this task. All of Luisa’s writings contained in his doctoral dissertation, approved by the Pontifical University of Rome, have been translated.
