Catholic of the Year 2006


Bishop Robert C. Morlino of the Diocese of Madison, Wisconsin.

His Excellency, Bishop Morlino, deserves to be Catholic of the Year 2006 for forcefully reminding the faithful of his diocese of the church's teachings before the election. He did this in the face of withering criticism and in spite of the deafening silence of some of his fellow Bishops on the same issues.

That is a great idea, Cathy. If Time Magazine can make all of us Person of the Year, well, then we should be able to reciprocate.

I'm going to have to think about this. You certainly have chosen two fine candidates. Bishop Morlino was one of only a very few bishops who spoke out in a year where there were lots of issues.

And it's scary what might happen with Milingo with Moon's money behind him.

Another brilliant choice.

Given the nature of my blog, I wonder if I have the guts to nominate "regional" Catholics of the Year. I'll have to muse! Hmmmm.

"Regional Anti-Catholic of the Year?" I can think of two candidates right off!

"Regional Catholic Blogger of the Year?"

Maybe I could do it like the way Pat Reusse does his "Turkey of the Year" Thanksgiving Award in the Strib.

Hmmmmmm. Fortunately, it is a long weekend.

Again, great idea!

Ray: Go for it! I love Reusse's Turkey of the Year award. It's always good for a laugh.
