Sister Leonella Sgorbati, of the Institute of Consolata Missionaries

She was born in 1940.
She entered the religious order in 1963.
She worked training nurses at a children's hospital in Mogadishu.
Men gunned her down outside the hospital this Sunday.
Her last words before dying: "I forgive, I forgive."

Here's an online article with more details.

Wonderful pictures of a dedicated Catholic Sister who obviously loved her work among the people of this land.

Truely martyred for her witness to Jesus Christ and the Gospel of Love.

May she rest in Peace and eternal light. Amen
