Some time ago I wrote here about the sad situation in Platteville, WI, in the Diocese of Madison where His Excellency Most Rev. Robert C. Morlino is bishop.
As you may remember, some liberals got their knickers in a knot about a group of good, orthodox priests who made some changes in parishes. The dissidents caused problems, harmed the financial well-being of a parish in such a way that they had to close their parish school. Bishop Morlino weighed in a with a letter to try to resolve the tensions. The liberals did the spittle-flecked thing, as they are wont to do when Catholic bishops act like Catholic bishops. Even the Fishwrap staged a nutty about the affair.
In any event, along the way I made a suggestion that some of you might want to send a donation to the diocese as a sign of moral and concrete support for the bishop and those priests who were viciously demonized by the lefties.
It seems that you responded to me suggestion generously.
A new development:
Today emails have come in from readers all over the place who receive a thank you note from Bishop Morlino. His letter, necessarily generic because of the number of addresses, was really nice. I suspect that the letter came with another note for taxes and so forth.
If you want to have a look at the letter, click the image for a larger version or go HERE.
You can STILL send signs of support, by the way, and you can designate to which fund or institution you want them to be applied.
