An Orthodox Saint on the Mahātmā
I'm not a fan of the above "icon" (nor of its "iconographer" nor of the use of icons to depict Western Christian saints, much less Hindu ones), but I am certainly a fan of Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi, and the image came to mind reading these "words of Saint Nicholas Velimirović (1881-1956), Bishop of Ochrid and Zhicha, on Mahatma Ghandi [sic]" (why can'y anyone learn to spell his name correctly?) — Fasting, Prayer, and Silence in Politics. The saint argues that "ever-active Providence has chosen Gandhi, an unbaptized man, to serve as a warning to the baptized, especially those baptized people who pile up one misfortune on another upon themselves and their peoples by using ruthless and harsh means."
