We are truly devastated to learn of the passing of the great Bishop Robert C. Morlino at 9:15 in St. Mary's Hospital in Madison, Wisconsin (the Feast of St. John of the Cross).  He was 71 years old.

After having survived a cardiac “event” the day before Thanksgiving, His Excellency took a turn for the worse. In your charity, please storm Heaven for the repose of  the soul of this good and faithful bishop.

Over the years, Bishop Morlino confirmed several of my children according to the traditional Rite of Confirmation, as his diocese had become something of a port in the storm for many displaced and disillusioned Catholic families. His faith and pastoral solicitude for us--strangers in his diocese--was a great consolation and proof that God had not left our children spiritual orphans. 

He was surely one of the most charitable and pastoral bishops my children had ever been graced to know in person. And for that fine priestly example I'll be forever grateful to him and to God. 

Bishop Morlino fought the good fight and, for him, the race is now over. But Christ's poor Church, which the good Bishop served so well and for so many years, will surely mourn his passing for a long time to come. May he now intercede on behalf of us all, the flock with whom he stayed and kept careful watch -- even when so many other shepherds had fled for fear of the wolves.  

Eternal rest grant unto him, O Lord, and may perpetual light shine upon him. Requiescat in pacem. 
Orémus. Deus, qui inter apostólicos sacerdótes fámulum tuum Robértum pontificáli fecísti dignitáte vigére: præsta, quǽsumus: ut eórum quoque perpétuo aggregétur consórtio. Per Dóminum nostrum Jesum Christum Fílium tuum, qui tecum vivit et regnat in unitáte Spíritus Sancti, Deus, per ómnia sǽcula sæculórum. Amen.

Réquiem ætérnam dona eis, Dómine. Et lux perpétua lúceat eis. Requiéscant in pace. Amen.

I've added his Excellency to my regular intentions.
The Church Militant loses a great warrior among an army of thieves, knaves, and cowards. May he quickly join the Church Triumphant and if he is to spend time among the Church Suffering, let his time be greatly diminished by our prayers and the intercessions of the saints.

Requiem Aeternam dona eis, Dominie. Et lux perpetua luceat eis. Requiescant in pace. Amen.
                                            One of a handful of good Bishops in the US. He'll be missed.
Eternal Father, I offer There the  Most Precious Blood of thy Divine Son Jesus, in Union with the Masses said throughout the world today, for all the Holy souls in purgatory, for sinners everywhere, for sinners in the universal church, those in my own home and within my family. Amen.

(A powerful prayer revealed to St Gertrude the Great. Our Blessed Lord promised that 1000 souls would be released from purgatory each time it was said devoutly)

Eternal rest grant to him O Lord and may perpetual light shine upon him, may he and all of the souls of the faithful departed rest in peace. Amen
