Sister Leonella Sgorbati

Dieing from gunshot wounds to her back, abdomen, and face from a Muslim attacker, Sr. Leonella's last words were "I forgive, I forgive". The attack has been attributed to a misrepresented reading of Pope Benedict XVI's lecture at Regensburg University in Germany. Pope Benedict XVI paid tribute to this saintly religious Italian who died in Somalia outside a hospital for children where she worked. His Holiness stated that her death was the ultimate expression of 'Christian testimony'.
"the victory of love over hate and evil".
