So badly did relations deteriorate between the sisters of Santa Clara in Bari that the Mother Superior ended up in hospital with scratches to her face...........She has not once left the nunnery in 44 years and she is not about to be pushed about now......
If she ended up in hospital, how can they say she has not once left the nunnery in 44 years?
.........But Sister Liliana, the only nun still there, says she has no intention of leaving her home of the past 44 years............. And since she is devoted to her vow of silence it is not that easy to reason with her.
If she is devoted to her vow of silence, how could she say she has no intention of leaving?
While it certainly sounds as though things are grim at the convent, the report seems to be just another 'let's-put-the-boot-into-the-nuns-while-they're-down-because-they-don't-fight-back-and-it's-always-good-for-a-laugh' opportunity for some half baked hack.
osso, I too know very well what nuns can be like - you get the really sincere women who have a true calling and do their best to help wherever and however they can and you get the pure sadists who (I believe) have hidden in the sisterhood because they are too gutless to face the world and who spend their days making life a misery for everyone around them. I clearly recall using the term 'you unmitigated bitch' in conversation with one such 'lady' many moons ago. However, I did at least make a point of saying it to her face so she could have the opportunity to reply, not publishing bullshit about her as the BBC has done in this case.
Sorry dear, didn't mean to get serious, but you did invite opinion.....
