Bishop Morlino’s tribute section in paper speaks beautifully to a life well-lived Print
Letters to the editor

To the editor:

The December 6 issue of the Catholic Herald had tough competition from tree trimming, gift wrapping, and Christmas cards.

But I welcomed a “sit-down” to read the special “In Memoriam” section about Bishop Robert C. Morlino in the Herald. It speaks beautifully to a life well-lived.

I actually re-read and stroke-counted some of the frequently used words of tribute. Friend, kind, hope, and teacher showed up regularly. But truth, humor, joy, and love were clear winners. I believe Bishop Morlino would be pleased and would smile realizing he was most remembered for truth, humor, joy, and love.

And I paused to wonder what words my life might inspire.

Thanks for continuing to make the Catholic Herald time well spent.
