Last night I attended a Vespers service held to pray for the soul of Bp. Morlino. A former Vicar General of Madison, now Bp. of Sioux Falls, Most Rev. Paul J. Swain presided and preached. There were many people whom I recognized from out of town in a packed chapel.
It was consoling to see that the diocese availed itself of vestments, candles, and so forth, from the Tridentine Mass Society of the Diocese of Madison. It is a great honor. You readers who have contributed to the TMSM helped and were part of it.
Today we go to a large parish for the funeral. Again vestments of the TMSM will be used, and, again, those of you who have contributed to our projects are morally present.
Please say a prayer for the soul of Bp. Morlino and for those who must choose a successor.
Also, the funeral will be broadcast LIVE on EWTN. Perhaps you readers can post links to watch it online.
This is an important moment for the Church in these USA.
I strongly recommend a sound examination of conscience and good confession.
We are in turbulent spiritual times marked but clear markers.
