Funeral and TLM Requiem for @BishopMorlino of @MadisonDiocese

I received the following:

The Funeral Arrangements for Bishop Morlino are as follows:

–  A Prayer Vigil, with opportunity for visitation, will be held Monday, December 3rd, at the O’Donnell Chapel at Holy Name Heights, 702 S. High Point Rd., Madison, from 1:00-7:00 PM, with Solemn Vespers beginning at 7:00 PM, Bishop Paul Swain presiding.

–  Visitation on Tuesday, December 4th, at St. Maria Goretti Catholic Church, Madison, from 9:00 AM until just prior to the Funeral Mass.

–  The Mass of Christian Burial (funeral) will be celebrated at St. Maria Goretti Catholic Church, 4313 Flad Ave., Madison, at 11:00 AM.  The Most Reverend Jerome Listecki, Archbishop of Milwaukee, will be the principal celebrant with the Reverend Monsignor James R. Bartylla as homilist.

–  Interment will be at Resurrection Cemetery immediately following the Funeral Mass.


The Tridentine Mass Society of the Diocese of Madison, will have a traditional Requiem Mass for the late Bishop, the Extraordinary Ordinary.  The time and place have not been set.  We were waiting for details from the diocese about the official schedule before we did anything.   A time and a place will be forthcoming soon. 

Meanwhile, I can’t think of a better tribute to this good bishop than to GO TO CONFESSION, to offer a good Holy Communion and Rosary for him, and then try to stay i the state of grace for as long as you can afterwards.   Get it some thought.

BTW… the last Pontifical Mass that Bp. Morlino celebrated was the annual 2 November Requiem for the deceased priests and bishops of the diocese.

    It’s too bad he isn’t received a funeral Mass in the extraordinary form. I bet that is what he would have wanted.

    @JohnMa: yes, that is the first thing that I thought about. In fact, I had originally assumed that somebody like Archbishop Sample would preside over Bishop Morlino’s funeral Mass in the EF. But I guess it’s all going to be a NO funeral Mass.
