“What a difference a bishop makes!” Amen!
Orthodox bishops seem to have the most seminarians thanks to the Holy Spirit.
I don’t understand this. The manutergium was abandoned in the new rite, and replaced by a purificator. In fact, there was an instruction on this very issue which came from the NCCB in the mid 90’s.
Am I missing something? I didn’t think the Rite of Ordination had been re-translated or touched since then. I may be wrong. Not sure.
My grandmother was buried with my uncle’s manutergie wrapped around her hands. It was made from his baptismal gown, which had been worn for four generations of my family.
I got goosebumps watching this and was compelled to make a prayer of thanksgiving. God be praised for these men and all the seminarians in Madison.
And thank you, Father, for posting it. I’ll bookmark it for a donation later.
Good for Bishop Morlino. A true and faithful servant of the Lord. My home diocese ordained eight this year, so keep up the good work and you might just catch up with Bishop Conley!
I like how the ordination has its own trailer.
I was able to line up my ride to the ordination, though I do not have a ticket to be seated and I highly suspect it will be standing room only with 6 men to be ordained. If people know about the men to be ordained they would see why it is right and just and natural for this ordination to involve manutergia. Maybe Bishop Morlino wrote to Cardinal Sarah and said “may I have permission to use the manutergium for our ordinations, multiple ordinands are asking for this,” and Cardinal Sarah wrote back saying “placet.” Why would Cardinal Sarah say no? Or maybe Bishop Morlino is just confident he is the chief liturgist in his diocese.
I hope to be at the 1st Mass of Fr Chris Gernetzke though I have not arranged a ride yet, and I know I will be at the 1st Mass of Fr Gabi Lopez.
This is proof that Our God loves us, and he will not abandon us! New Lieutenants have been forged to lead the Church Militant into battle.
It’s heartening to hear about such great young men in the heartland!
The local Carmelite nuns sewed the manuturgia for my ordination class. It is in safekeeping until the day comes when my mother’s hands will be wrapped with it. The purificator from my first Mass went to my father, who was buried with it – RIP.
They say imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, right? Maybe it was the same production company? But more importantly, may God continue to bless Bp. Morlino and these six men. Ad multos annos!

This is great to see! Though, for the record, Chicago just had 14 men ordained last month. ;)
