Heroes of the Faith
But why should we spend time talking about heroes of the faith? Well, I think the first thing we need to note is there's a difference between a hero and a celebrity. And we should never confuse heroes and celebrities. I'm not talking about one time heroes. I want to talk about life time heroes. What exactly is a long term hero? A long term hero is someone who, over the course of his life, leads an excellent life. A hero is someone who is good at life. It is a person who has skillful character. A hero is someone who has an outstanding character that draws other people to lead excellent lives.
