For All The Saints, Not Just SomeRock passes on a bit of Jesuit James Martin's New York Times editorial on "Saints That Weren't." Sometimes saints weren't the GLB's and GLG's that conservatives make sainthood out to be:
All Saints’ Day is a good time to remember that while most saints led lives of quiet service, some led the life of the noisy prophet, speaking the truth to power — even when that power was within the church.Sisters with spines: what a thought! Maybe Mother Guerin will be a patron of sorts for VOTF.
