Bishop Robert C. Morlino delivered a powerful and faithful video message to Catholic educators in the Diocese of Madison, Wisconsin.
“As teachers workshops wind up around the country, and as schools begin again, and as this Year of Faith continues, how many Catholic school teachers receive a message like this?” asks Father John Zuhlsdorf, who brought worldwide attention to the video on his popular blog, What Does the Prayer Really Say?
Bishop Morlino knows a bit about teaching, as he taught philosophy at Loyola College (now Loyola University Maryland), St. Joseph University in Philadelphia, Boston College, the University of Notre Dame and St. Mary's College in Indiana.
He asks his teachers to pray for God’s grace and encourages them to “stay close to the sacraments, to Mass, to Confession.”
“You need to pray every day so that you can be the channel for God to give those kids all the graces He wants to give them,” he says. “And they’re countless, because His love for you and His love for them is beyond measure.”
