No Greater Love

According to AP, Sister Leonella Sgorbati, the nun murdered in Somalia last week, used to joke about there being a bullet in Somalia with her name engraved on it and died forgiving her killers.

Father, forgive them, for they know not what they do, said Christ on the cross.
I think Sister Leonella's killers knew perfectly well what they were doing, and may have been waiting for an excuse to do it.

Father, forgive them anyway, for Sister Leonella's sake. And give us the grace to forgive them as well.
