The program would help businesses and nonprofits make payroll. Keep people buying groceries. Help us get through this. Federal law set eligibility requirements for the program. It set specific criteria for churches. Some churches appl

September 7, 2020 World News Comments Off on Farewell, Uncle Di: Father Paul Mankowski, RIP

Among them all, for sheer full-spectrum intellectual wattage, none was more brilliant than my friend, Father Paul Mankowski, who died suddenly this week. You may well ask: If he was such a world-class genius, why wasn’t his death front-page news? Why wasn’t he a celebrity? Why is the only book available under his name an obscure work on Akkadian Loanwords in Biblical Hebrew? Those are good questions. The answers make his life story all the more interesting. That he was a prodigious intellect…Continue Reading
