We bishops rely each and every blessed day on the prayers of the good and holy people
of our diocese and of all those who have gone before us. We have no better intercessor
than our Blessed Mother, the Mother of all the Apostles, the Mother of the Church. It
gives me great serenity to know that so many women and men are turning to Mary, asking
her special care and intercession for the bishops. As the Lord blesses the bishops
through the intercession of Mary, may every person who takes part in the Rosary for
the Bishop project also be blessed.
- Bishop Robert C. Morlino, Diocese of Madison
As a Bishop, I am humbled and privileged to be prayed for by name each time Mass is
celebrated in my Diocese. Knowing that many others are also praying for me every day by
participating in the program Rosary for the Bishop, is a special blessing and source of
encouragement for me. The intercession of our Blessed Mother through the praying of the
rosary is a powerful tool to help me in my mission as a Shepherd of the Church. Thank
you to all who participate in the program and for all who make it possible. It means
more to me than you will ever know and I do indeed feel the grace of your prayers for me.
- Bishop R. Walker Nickless, Diocese of Sioux City
