Fallaci gifts pontifical university out of admiration for Benedict XVI

October 22, 2006 at 7:25 am (News, Oriana Fallaci)

The revered Orianna Fallaci (وإنها رسولتنا ورسولة المغرب) left her books and journalistic notes to the Pontifical Lateran University (Pontificia Universita Lateranense) out of her respect and reverence for Joseph Cardinal Ratzinger, Pope Benedict XVI. She had a secret and private audience with Pope Benedict XVI at Castel Gandolfo shortly before her much-lamented death. Although she found much to criticize about The Catholic Church, and she was surely not afraid to voice her criticism, she found hope for The Catholic Church in Pope Benedict XVI. This gift was a surprise to The Holy See, especially as she was an atheist. Nevertheless, there was significant common ground between Orianna Fallaci, of blessed memory, and Pope Benedict XVI.
