Clouds of Witnesses

I was working on a creative project related to the subject of All Saints for which I needed to assemble a collection of saints (official or otherwise) around Christ. The only restriction I set myself was that those chosen had to number some multiple of 12 (the number of the People of God). Since the list was not intended to be comprehensive or even representative, my choices tended to be highly idiosyncratic. I guess you could say these are my spiritual heroes.

The Boy with Loaves and Fishes
Jairus' Daughter
Cuthbert
Athanasius
John Wesley
Hubert
Gall
Brendan the Voyager
Melchizedek
Uhtred of Boldon
Bede the Venerable
Julian of Norwich
Brother Lawrence
J.S. Bach
Dante Alighieri
Johannes Kepler
Elizabeth I
Lord Baden-Powell
Edwin's Alderman
Eutychus
J.R.R. Tolkien
C.S. Lewis
Dorothy Sayers
Charles Williams

Whom would you choose to represent what All Saints means to you?
