People: Spiritual Warriors

Dorothy Stang was a Catholic nun and human rights activist in Brazil who recently met martyrdom. Less well-known is Hladini Dasi, a Vaisnava nun who met with a similar fate during her missionary work in Liberia twelve years ago. When I read of Dorothy, I couldn't help but be reminded of Hladini, and how their uncommon faith and conviction led them both to a state of fearlessness against even the most formidable opposition.
