A lioness has passed

Oriana Fallaci, one of the writers I most admire has died after a hard fought battle against cancer. She was utterly fearless and wrote with aferocity that was in turns shocking and beautiful. I hope she was able to reconcile with the church before the end came and so because all things are possible with God I pray:

Eternal rest grant unto her, Oh Lord. May perpetual light shine upon her. May she rest in peace.
Heart of Jesus, once in agony, have mercy on the departed.
