LET'S START OUR OWN CANON OF SAINTS
« on: May 10, 2010, 04:50:10 am »
Who has advanced spirituality in our era? 

The two names that spring to mind to me are Martin Luther King and Malcolm X.  They qualify for sainthood easily to me. 

Any other nominations?

Nelson Mandela is the next name that comes to mind for me.

Nice one;  Ghandi is another obvious play here.  Man, these guys all have one degree of separation between them.
