Rome — Pope Francis is hosting a landmark summit on clergy sex abuse and much of the focus is on protecting minors. But new protections could help other victims too, including nuns.
Back when she was sister Doris Wagner, raped by a priest in her convent, the then 24-year-old nun from a poor German family felt silenced by the system.
The article goes on to state the following:
“The experience of sexual abuse does not fit in what they tell you the ‘life of a nun’ should be like and any sister who will come to the point to understand that she has a right to speak out at it will be blamed and shamed and silenced by her own superiors and fellow sisters,” Wagner said.
