I am drawn to researching and writing Catholic Systematic Theology in the classic sense of faith seeking understanding, which means that my task as a systematic theologian attempts to serve the deepening understanding of the Catholic Christian faith. My research, presenting, and writing strive for greater convergence of thought regarding Mystical theology, Trinitarian theology, Christology, Pneumatology, and Ecclesiology. Through an integrative methodology, I constructively interact the articulations of God in Mystical Theology with the articulations of God in contemporary Trinitarian theology. The theologies of Adrienne von Speyr (1902-1967), who was a lay woman, doctor, and mystic, and Hans Urs von Balthasar (1905-1988), who was a significant twentieth-century Catholic theologian, provide a fruitful example of the synthesis that I would like to achieve in my own research.
