The National Catholic Bioethics Center Mourns the Death of the Most Reverend Robert C. Morlino
© 2019 by The National Catholic Bioethics Center
The National Catholic Bioethics Center mourns the death of the Most Reverend Robert C. Morlino, who served as the Chairman of the Board of Directors of the Center from 2005 until 2011. He served on the NCBC Board from 2001 until 2011. Bishop Morlino was a trained moral theologian with a doctorate from the Pontifical Gregorian University in Rome who provided solid leadership and unwavering support of the Center. He was a strong defender of the sanctity of life and the sanctity of traditional marriage. He also had a great love for the liturgy and sought to instill a sense of reverence in worship throughout the diocese of Madison Wisconsin. Dr. John Haas, President of the Center, stated: “Bishop Morlino was a mentor and a friend who was solidly grounded in the moral teachings of the Church. He was always able to share them with true piety but also with an engaging sense of humor. He will be missed, but we know we now have the benefit of his prayers with more immediate access to our heavenly Father!” With his help, and that of the benefactor he brought to us, Dr. Marlen Junck, the NCBC was able to translate and publish the seminal work Personalist Bioethics of Cardinal Elio Sgreccia. May Bishop Morlino rest in the peace of Christ whom he served so faithfully.
