As a man lives....

Catholics don't rejoice, but recall Gadhafi's brutality, look to future

Women celebrate the death of ousted Libyan leader Moammar Gadhafi after Friday prayers at Martyrs Square in Tripoli Oct. 21. The Vatican said his death marked the end of a "harsh and oppressive regime" that was based on power instead of human dignity.

Catholic leaders said they could not rejoice at the death of Libyan dictator Moammar Gadhafi, but they recalled some of his more brutal moments and speculated on the future of Christians in the region.
