  • Bishop Morlino’s homily for Mass at Conference on Authentic Reform

    It is with a heavy heart that we share the news of the passing of Bishop Robert Morlino, Bishop of Madison, WI. He was called home to Our Lord on November 24th, at approximately 9:15pm CST at the age of 71.
    Bishop Morlino was a dear friend of the Napa Institute and a member of our Ecclesial Board of Directors. Just a few short weeks ago he joined us in Washington DC as a speaker at the Authentic Reform Conference, where he urged attendees not to give into the temptation to despair in these difficult times, for our hope is in the name of the Lord who made heaven and earth.

Giving of our “Everything”

By Fr. Jerome Molokie O.Praem
