Christian Courage

This is a story of Christian courage: Sr. Leonella Sgorbati's dying legacy, after being shot by two men just days after Pope's Regensburg lecture. What grace must have worked in her to prompt her to speak of forgiving her killers as she lay dying. It is courage born of charity (love).

But a bitter part of me laments the lack of outrage over this senseless murder, from the same people who were outraged, scandalized or embarassed over the Pope's few words, taken out of the context of the lecture. Why are they not being as vocal about this, the death of an innocent?
