I've referenced Paul's work several times in this column over the last 12 years. The amount of material he collected and wrote during the course of his career was, and is, remarkable. Paul wasn't afraid to take on heterodox bishops, priests and religious, while at the same time promoting Catholic orthodoxy. He deserves praise for exposing church corruption in the years prior to 2002, when the clergy sex abuse scandal exploded in the secular mainstream media.
Paul had his critics, but he clearly cherished the Catholic faith. He will be missed. Please pray for the repose of his soul and for his family. Below is an obituary for Paul.
