RIP Most Reverend Robert C. Morlino, Bishop of Madison, WI

From the Diocese of Madison, WI, via Fr. Z:

It is my sad duty to inform you of the death of Most Reverend Robert C. Morlino, Bishop of Madison. Bishop Morlino died tonight, Saturday, November 24th, at approximately 9:15 pm at St. Mary Hospital in Madison at the age of 71...

Eternal rest grant unto him O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon him. May he rest in peace.

I never met Bishop Morlino, but I knew of him, and his work, and he was an inspiration to me as an example of what a good and faithful Catholic could be. Along with one of Fr Zā€™s commentators, I pray that he has heard these words:

ā€œWell done, O good and faithful servant.ā€
