Catholic League president Bill Donohue comments on the death of Bishop Robert C. Morlino:
Bishop Robert Morlino of the Diocese of Madison, Wisconsin passed away on November 24. He was 71.
Most Catholics have bishops whom they greatly admire, and in my case Bishop Morlino was one of my favorites. I treasure the time we spent together, having first been introduced to him by Raymond Arroyo.
Bishop Morlino was brilliant and kind, witty and humorous, courageous and fair. Above all, he was a loyal priest. He loved the Church and served with distinction for many decades.
He was not afraid to speak the truth, and in this regard, he remains a model to his brother bishops. God bless Bishop Robert Morlino.
