To end violence against nuns by the priests and bishops, some of which used women as sex slaves, will take all possible measures.
This was stated by Pope Francis, reports Reuters.
In recent years, more and more nuns, inspired by the movement #MeToo, began to tell about the abuse by the priests and bishops.
“It’s true… there were priests and even bishops who have done it. I think it’s still going on, because something doesn’t stop just because you found out about it.” Pope Francis
In addition, the Pope noted that the Vatican is actively working on the problem, and many priests have been suspended.
Francis also recalled that former Pope Benedict has dismissed a religious order of women shortly after his election as Pontiff in 2005:
“Because slavery has become a part of this order, even sexual slavery on the part of the priests and of the founder”.
Recallthat Pope Francis personally presented the development of a new religious site and application “Pull and pray” (Click to pray). It was timed to the Day of Catholic youth.
The website “Press and pray” (Click to pray) consists of three main sections: “Pray with the Pope”, with a monthly prayer intentions of the Pope regarding the challenges facing humanity, and mission of the Church.
