Family

I have been married to Catherine Ruth Pakaluk since August 15, 1999.   She received her Ph.D in economics from Harvard in 2009, and we have 7 children:

My late wife, Ruth, died at a young age in 1998.  I have written a memoir of her life, The Appalling Strangeness of the Mercy of God, published by Ignatius Press.

I was blessed with seven children of that marriage:
