Things I am passionate about. Injustice, stupidity, intolerance, bigotry and small-mindedness. Oh and there might just be some humor to offset the whole thing.

We’ll have nun of that!

It appears that the Pope needs to rein in those boisterous sisters.

A convent in southern Italy is being shut down after a quarrel among its last three remaining nuns ended in blows, AFP press reports said.

Sisters Annamaria and Gianbattista, reportedly upset about their mother superior’s authoritarian ways, scratched her in the face and threw her to the gound at Santa Clara convent near Bari in an incident in July that was kept quiet until now.

Seems like it’s sisters 1 and mother superiors 0.

Anyway, Archbishop Giovanni Battista Pichierri tried to reconcile the nuns but finally decided in late August that that they had “clearly lost their religious vocation” and asked the Vatican for permission to close the convent.

Sisters Annamaria and Gianbattista moved to another convent, but Sister Liliana barricaded herself inside, refusing to leave, the reports said, adding that she suspected Battista Pichierri of planning to cede the convent to another community. Liliana has been at the convent since 1963.

If Sisters Annamaria and Gianbattista find that they don’t fit in at the other convent, they could contact the WWF and see if there’s any need for a new female tag team – perhaps the could call themselves “The Holy Rollers” and also I think after having been there for 44 years, Liliana might deserve a well earned vacation and perhaps a different vocation.
