Bishop Morlino connects with youth, defends values Print
Letters to the editor

To the editor:

On September 26, I had the opportunity to be part of the Sacrament of Confirmation of dozens of young Catholics at St. John Vianney Parish in Janesville. The event was made even more special thanks to the presence of Madison Bishop Robert Morlino. His connection with the young people — speaking to them in a language they understand — and his steadfast defense of basic Catholic values during his address were truly inspiring.

It’s no secret that Bishop Morlino has drawn the ire of the press and people — both within and outside the Church — who detest true Catholic values. Yet, I for one continue to be inspired by the bishop’s willingness to boldly speak out on many issues, especially the need for vocations and the sanctity of human life.

Thank you, Bishop Morlino, for truly being a shepherd — as opposed to telling people only what they want to hear.

Greg Chesmore, Milwaukee
