The Feminine Power Supporting the Pope

The story below illustrates the powerful, important role women play in the hierarchy of the Roman Catholic Church. Without them, what would the church's leaders eat and how would they live in other than filth and squalor? This demonstrates the high regard in which they are held by the Pope and the rest of the hierarchy. So nobody should say the church doesn't value women, OK?

In Vatican Magazine Exposé, Nuns Reveal Their Economic Exploitation

ROME — Sister Marie told of nuns who worked long hours to cook and clean for cardinals and bishops, without being asked to break bread at the same table.

Sister Paule pointed out that many nuns did not have registered contracts with the bishops, schools, parishes or congregations they worked for, “so they are paid little or not at all.”

Sister Cécile said that “nuns are seen as volunteers to have available at one’s calling, which gives rise to abuse of power.”

These stories — told by sisters using pseudonyms — were revealed Thursday in an exposé about how nuns are exploited by the leaders and institutions of the Roman Catholic Church. The article, by the French journalist Marie-Lucile Kubacki, was published in the March edition of Women Church World, the monthly magazine on women distributed alongside the Vatican newspaper L’Osservatore Romano.
