MADISON -- When Bishop Robert C. Morlino came to Madison as our new bishop in 2003, he said he hoped to practice BLT: "Badger them lovingly with the truth."

Bishop Morlino has continued to practice BLT throughout his 15 years as Bishop of Madison. "That's what I'm doing every blessed day," he has said. "I know that some feel more badgered than others, but I hope to help them to be both badgered and loved."

He will celebrate the 15th anniversary of his installation on August 1. He was installed as the fourth Bishop of Madison on August 1, 2003. The pro-life community in the diocese will be hosting a 5:30 p.m. Mass with Bishop Morlino at St. Mary Catholic Church of Pine Bluff, to which all are invited.

Joy in vocations

"My greatest joy continues to be in terms of the number of seminarians and vocations in the diocese," said Bishop Morlino. "We pray that the Lord will continue to bless us."

When he came, there were six diocesan seminarians. That number grew to a high of 33 seminarians.
