Her act is most admirable, but I doubt will not gain her any points with the Big Guy on her Big Day.

As a Priest once told me, "If you live your life as if there is no God, you better hope you're right."

Admirable? Perhaps. I would hope that it was more than that. It was a leap of faith-a belief that transcended all of the doubt that she had previously felt. I hope that God, who is far more forgiving than I, can forgive this woman who, at the very end of her life, displayed more faith than many.

If La Fallaci, in her suffering and declining days, found herself thinking about where her real alliances should be; and if she decided she'd like to do what she could for someone who spoke to her of Christ, for Christ, and in the name of Christ (as Papa Benedict did), I'd like to hope that with her last breath she might have said, "For you, Christ! Have mercy on me! Save me! I am for your people, and for You!"

Oh, it's not a matter of gaining points. God is very, very crafty about saving people; He's brilliant at it; Savior is His name.
