- Pair O. Diez. Pair was a hero of the El Salvadorian people. With 6 Jesuits, he gave his live for the cause of the poor in 1989. I think he'd fit right in here.
- Mary Magdalene. She was a contemporary of Jesus'. I like her because she said (referring to Jesus), "They have taken my Lord and I don't know where they have put him!" And it turned out he was standing right in front of her ... it was Jesus she was talking to! I think that it's totally appropriate, almost a prophetic view of what is happening in today's world. Some complain that they can't find the tabernacle in church, but Jesus is right before them in the PEOPLE!
I am open to other suggestions, and know there could be a gazzilion of them (Sr. Chittister, Dorthy Day, Fr. Richard McBrien just to name a few), but think we need to be discerning and choose ONLY the very best!
