Fr. Paul Mankowski, a great Jesuit and a dear friend, died today at 1 pm. It just so happens that today I had assigned him on my syllabus.
I am so grateful for his presence in my life. He encouraged me when I was an overwhelmed grad student with four kids, he helped me teach Homer, Shakespeare, and Melville at UofC, and he was there for me during some of my worst trials and sorrows. He continued to encourage me long after I left Chicago. He was generous, kind, erudite, brave, and funny as hell. He cared about what really mattered and he held fast to the truth when doing so cost him. I last saw him in February. He gave me a big hug and told me he was proud of me. I just cannot believe he is gone.
We are still working on getting more details about the death, as a family statement on the death is yet to be released.
