RIP One of the Great Catholics of Milwaukee

A friend, mentor, and great Catholic woman passed away yesterday.

It was my privilege to know her for over 25 years, and it was an honor to speak with her.

She was wise--she knew serpents when she saw them--and yet, like all great women, compassionate. She never gave up, never quit, and never allowed her friends to confuse the Church with its often-ignominious members.

Jo Kuffel, RIP.

In Paradisum deducant te, Angeli
In tuo adventu suscipiat te Martyres
Et perducant te in civitatem sanctam,

Chorus Angelorum te suscipiat,
Et cum Lazaro, quondam paupere,
Aeternam habeas requiem.
