Raped by a Catholic priest: An ex-nun The rape of nuns - another Catholic 1 day ago   06:37

DW News
The Catholic Church has been hit by yet another abuse scandal. Pope Francis has acknowledged that high-ranking members of the clergy sexually abused and raped nuns. Francis admitted suspending priests and bishops for abusing women and promised to do more to eradicate the problem. Up until now, the Vatican has done almost nothing to address the crimes. Campaigners say sexual abusers are protected by a culture of silence and secrecy. Former nun Doris Reisinger told DW that a priest raped her. Today she is an Catholic theologian and author, who has published a book about her experience.

The evil Roman Catholic church only chase money. I dont believe they are Christian either since they worship the insignificant mother mary.

WHAT ABOUT THE SEXUAL ABUSE BY NUNS TO FEMALE STUDENTS IN NJ CATHOLIC SCHOOL ?
Michael D'Emic
Take this woman's statements with a big grain of salt. I am a layman who has had close and extensive contact with her former religious community for many years. They are an exemplary group of men and women--committed, mature and balanced. Frankly, her allegation of "rape" just does not pass the smell test. This is not the kind of congregation in which that could happen and nothing done about it. No way.

The catholic church is Antichrist

Sr. Maura O'Donoghue was my aunt. She has since passed away. She sent a report to the vatican and it was ignored. Then it was published years later in a Catholic Journal. She was called to Rome to discuss how she could have this information about so many cases of abuse of Nuns by Priests. She said she was handed the stories during her travels. She questioned how they could not know when they had people there year round. She was an extraordinary woman, doctor, nun and human being. The church had her followed and attempted to intimidate her.
I wish she was here now to discuss what is happening.

"The Church only admits what it can no longer deny" Powerful! Very true,

shame on so called catholic priests they are predators ... Jesus loved & saved women. he raised a dead girl, healed a sick woman with the blood issue, saved a woman caught in the act of adultery from being stoned, saved a lost Samaritan woman & list of his love & mercy goes on & here these so called evil fake priests are abusing the daughters of God.

Do nuns ever get caught abusing little girls?!?!?
TheProBush
Nuns...you should depend on God...not the Church...that shows that your faith in God is weak...
TheProBush
The acknowledgement is one thing. The chasitity rule is not God's ruling...some impotent guy came up with this crazy idea ... the Church bought the idea..
No normal man can go through life without sex. God made man n woman...

Dear Lady - there is no god. Your Catholic priest had his sexual impulsions like any other person. Surprising that you still believe in God! When will you people ever learn?
Bill Bell
I was having difficulty understanding just how the offending men in the church were able to exert such control over these women. I very much appreciate her explanation since it dovetails with so much we know about what must change in society.

The Catholic Church became celibate since the 9th century because of sex abuse so nothing change, so how can you believe in them,????????
Holiday Holly
She is brave. I'm glad she woke up. 🌷
Sad but It's true
Is that new news?? This bloodshed, murder, powerful institution has been doing bad things since its creation, remember the dark age, where people were burn to death. The only question is: until when??

Obviously the rape this woman experienced was horrific and cannot be excused. But her other complaints about being controlled and being forced to clean and cook make me wonder if she actually looked into becoming a nun before she joined the order. I’m not even Catholic and I kind of always assumed that’s what being a low ranking nun would be like.
