Fr. Z nominates His Eminence Raymond Cardinal Burke as 2014’s Catholic Man of the Year and lists his compelling reasons.  Here’s my annotation in the comment box:

I’ll … 34th that nomination, for all the reasons you cite, Father. His Eminence’s support for the canonization of the late great Fr. John Hardon, SJ, comes as a very pleasant surprise. For the uninitiated, Fr. Hardon was a master catechist and his Catholic Catechism, Q&A Catechism,[Which I was given by Msgr. Richard Schuler in my instruction to enter the Church. Outstanding.] and The Faith form a holy trilogy of orthodox, compelling, and very well-written catechisms. The Q&A Catechism comes with a forward by Cardinal Ottaviani (santo subito!) on the benefits of traditional catechesis, written at a time when the elites running our dioceses and parishes couldn’t abandon those methods fast enough. All three books have been recently released in affordable Kindle versions:
