In particular I congratulate His Excellency Most Reverend Robert C. Morlino, the Extraordinary Ordinary, Bishop of Madison.
Let’s have a look at St. Robert’s entry in the post-Conciliar Martyrologium Romanum of 2005.
Sancti Roberti Bellarmino, episcopi et Ecclesiae doctoris, e Societate Iesu, qui praeclare de theologicis temporis sui controversiis peculiari ac subtili habitu disputavit; cardinalis renuntiatus, ad ministerium pastorale in Ecclesiae Capuana magnopere sese impendit et tandem Romae ad Apostolicae Sedis et fidei doctrinae defensionem plurimos suscepit labores.
St. Robert’s body may be venerated in Rome at the Church of St. Ignatius, Sant’Ignazio, which is a must visit for many reasons. He was deeply involved – and positively – in the “Galileo Affair”.
Would you all like to stretch your Latin muscles? I’ll turn on the moderation queue so that you can’t copy from each other’s papers. Other comments (without translations) about St. Robert I’ll let through as I find them.
Not long ago, I was privileged to see a letter with a signature of St. Robert Bellarmine. HERE
