POPE ADMITS SEXUAL ABUSE OF NUNS BY BISHOPS AND PRIESTS!

Pope admits clerical abuse of nuns including sexual slavery

Pope Francis made the admission while visiting the Middle East
Pope Francis has admitted that clerics have sexually abused nuns, and in one case they were kept as sex slaves.
He said in that case his predecessor, Pope Benedict, was forced to shut down an entire congregation of nuns who were being abused by priests.
It is thought to be the first time that Pope Francis has acknowledged the sexual abuse of nuns by the clergy.
He said the Church was attempting to address the problem but said it was “still going on”.

Pope Francis made the comments on Tuesday to reporters while on a historic tour of the Middle East.
He admitted that priests and bishops had abused nuns, but said the Church was aware of the issue and “working on it”.
“It’s a path that we’ve been on,” he said.
“Pope Benedict had the courage to dissolve a female congregation which was at a certain level, because this slavery of women had entered it – slavery, even to the point of sexual slavery – on the part of clerics or the founder.”
Alessandro Gisotti of the Vatican press office later told CBS News that the order in question had been based in France.
Pope Francis said sexual abuse of nuns was an ongoing problem but happened largely in “certain congregations, predominantly new ones”.
Last November, the Catholic Church’s global organisation for nuns denounced the “culture of silence and secrecy” that prevented them from speaking out.
Just days ago the Vatican’s women’s magazine, Women Church World, condemned the abuse,saying in some cases nuns were forced to abort priests’ children – something Catholicism forbids.
The magazine said the #MeToo movement meant more women were now coming forward with their stories.

PAT SAYS

Francis is only acknowledging a truth we all know.

How can Francis sleep at night knowing about all the abuse and corruption he knows about?

  1. The pot-bellied Latino has admitted nothing the international media didn’t compel him to admit. Don’t be under any illusion about Papa Francesco: he would much rather have kept all of this hidden. And he probably has known of it for decades.
    These parasites prefer secrecy and subterfuge to truth and trasnsparency.

  2. It is vitally important that nuns be encouraged to speak about their abuse, not just sexual but also domestically. Some new orders of religious women from poorer countries often end up as housekeepers for high officials and clerics in Rome and the Vatican and elsewhere. It is slavery. I have never liked the concept and argued with clerical personnel that if they want to help these women they should provide educational opportunities for them instead of using them as slaves. I hope Pope Francus firbida all religious sisters frim being used as caretakers of clerics. There are some wonderfully brilliant sisters and lay women in Rome who should be in charge of various commissions and offices. It might bring newness and enlightenment to a male hierarchy which sees only through its own lens. They very often miss the real “realities” and “nuances” of life. Religious sisters sbould never by abused or used by any cleric.

  11. I have a sense that sexual abuse and mistreatment of sisters / nuns is a minority interest, and that maybe it is raising its head as a means of diverting attention from the much more serious and existential problems that exist in the Church today, particularly abusive clerical culture, abuse of the vulnerable, misuse of power and authority….etc etc. The Church is very good at transference or redirection. Note the blaming of the Devil and then homosexual clergy in the Church for the avalanche of abuse. When will Pope Francis and the hierarchy realise that the root cause of so much of the dysfunction in the Church is the clerical culture and hierarchy that has been allowed to dominate for centuries, which is exclusive, privileged and entitled, and which believes that it can do what it wants. The secular authorities have seen through this and are beginning to take some control of the the situation (note the various investigations of the Church being done by secular authorities in the USA and in the UK with IICSA). When will the Church begin to take serious notice instead of transferring blame, and missing the real issues at stake ? Probably not soon, because Pope Francis et al are in thrall to the clerical culture and hierarchy in to which they have been educated and ordained, and to look at themselves is very difficult. Maybe it does need outside agencies to take a grip of the Church and make it change. It doesn’t seem capable of doing so itself.

      1. We’ve been ‘trying change since 1962’? No we haven’t; not where it matters most.
        The priest-parasites still think of themselves as ‘ontologically changed’ at ordination; it’s a doctrine of the Church. It is also the root of clericalism.
        A recently published study by an American theologian called upon priests not to think of themselves as superior to lay folk. But then, mindboggingly, it failed to challenge this gross doctrine; worse, it affirmed it!😲

  12. Just a clarification: abuse of sisters / nuns is a manifestation of the general culture of abuse in the Church, but is by no means as widespread as abuse of children and other vulnerable people. I think the focus might have been put on this abuse of sisters / nuns in part to move the focus, because it is sort of ‘internal Church’ stuff, involving people who are part of the structure of the Church. Focusing on this is like dealing with private grief and will not involve others, at least that is probably what they are thinking and hoping. It is still wrong, and it is an element of wider phenomenon of abuse, but it is not the real issue, which Francis and so many seem to want to keep ignoring.

Though he’s at a milestone now so is a bit touchy about it.

    https://www.thetablet.co.uk/news/11323/pope-s-uk-envoy-fails-to-give-evidence-to-abuse-inquiry-

    This is the Church trying to frustrate investigations by secular authorities in to the behaviour of its clergy and institutions. it will all be dressed up in diplomatic immunity and privilege and use and custom, but it is evident that if the Church is serious about addressing these issue it would want to willingly cooperate with investigations. And if the Nuncio has information pertinent to this investigation, then it should be shared. If not, we can be left with on alternative other than to think that the Church continues to pervert the cause of truth and justice in its own interests. Well, we already know that, don’t we ?
