MADISON 1 July: Pontifical Mass at Throne for Suffering and Persecuted Christians Around the Globe


I’ll pass this along…

From the Chancellor of the Diocese of Madison:

With this email I convey the dispensation of the Most Rev. Robert C. Morlino, Bishop of Madison, granted to any of those who assist piously in the Pontifical Mass for the Feast of the Precious Blood (this Friday) from their observance of Friday penances.


The Extraordinary Ordinary, His Excellency Most Rev. Robert C. Morlino, by the grace of God Bishop of Madison, regularly celebrates Holy Mass also in the Extraordinary Form of the Roman Rite.

The next Solemn Pontifical Mass will be offered by Bishop Morlino “at the Throne” (with the help of an assisting priest, deacon, subdeacon and two deacons at the Throne), on the evening of 1 July 2016, Feast of the Most Precious Blood of Our Lord, at 7:00 PM, at the chapel of Holy Name Heights (aka Bishop O’Connor Center).

This Mass will be celebrated offered for the intention of Suffering and Persecuted Christians Around the Globe.

The Mass is organized by the Tridentine Mass Society of the Diocese of Madison.

We will be using the beautiful RED vestments we had made.

All are welcome.

Catholic clergy are cordially invited to participate in in choir dress.

The Mass will be sung in the Church’s global language, Latin, of course.  The music will be Gregorian chant and polyphony.  For more information see

    A Solemn mass is being half way to Heaven.

    For those of you that live not in Wisconsin but in Southern California there is also a great opportunity tomorrow (or today depending on when you read this).

    May the witness of Bishop Morlino stoke the fervor of his flock and exalt our Church to the glory of God. Madison will be in my prayers that evening in Youngstown, Ohio, during the celebration of the traditional Dominican Rite at St. Dominic Parish.

    It was beautiful!
    Thank you!

    I hope you all saw that Cdl Rivera of Mexico City just celebrated his first public TLM since 1970. Keep your eye on him. He’s emerging as a very orthodox voice in Latin America.

    Possibly the only good thing about our current situation is that people are being forced to take a stand, and I think that far more than we believe will wind up on the right side.

    What a difference a Bishop makes.
