A recent article in a Vatican magazine on widespread exploitation of nuns in the Catholic Church has found many supporters in India, home to the world’s largest number of women religious.
“A welcome statement but late in coming,” said Sr. Teresa Kotturan, former vice president of the Sisters of Charity of Nazareth, about the March 1 article in the monthly Women, Church, World.
Fr. Paul Thelakat, who has arbitrated several disputes between nuns and priests in Kerala, southern India, said the “cry of the magazine from Rome is too late.”
