These are good priests, many of the parishoners seemed tainted by the liberal spirit of the Berkeley of the Midwest, the University of Wisconsin.

And here is Bishop Morlino's letter in response to the complaints:

That infernal beast Satan doesn't like what's going on there. Thus he's enlisted these heretics to topple those good priests and Bishop Morlino. We must pray for them.

Yes, Madison is famously liberal (although the rest of Wisconsin, not so much) -- which makes Bishop Morlino look even more heroic. He is based in Madison, and gets this kind of flak all the time, and I've never seen him back down. It's clear that he does what he does because it's right, not to please the maximum number of people, but it still might lift his heart to know he has supporters as well as detractors. I plan to write him a letter and let him know how much this is appreciated. (I actually got to shake his hand after Midnight Mass last Christmas!)

The bishop's letter is an excellent example of how to deal with people without condemnation.  We could all learn from this letter.

I think that's a great idea!

God bless Bishop Morlino.  There are good things going on in the Madison diocese.

I particularly enjoy in the bishop's letter where he repeatedly states that such and such is not taught by Vatican II, and in the finances section talks about how supporting The Church is mandated by the council.  :laughing:
