Her academic work has focused on the Salesian spiritual tradition founded by Francis de Sales and Jane de Chantal. She is the author of several books, including her most recent publications: "Caryll Houselander: Essential Writings," "Mary and the Catholic Church: Le Point Vierge," and "The Essential Spirituality Handbook."
