Pope Francis admits to immorality in the Catholic family


On his return from the United Arab Emirates, Pope Francis admitted that priests and bishops in the Catholic Church had sexually abused nuns.

He responded to a question a journalist asked, “There are some priests and also bishops who have done it,” the pontiff said.

The papal admission followed a rare outcry last week from the Vatican’s women’s magazine over the sexual abuse of nuns by priests and religious sisters feeling forced to have abortions or raise children not recognised by their fathers.

The issue hit the headlines last year after a nun accused an Indian bishop of repeatedly raping her in a case that triggered rare dissent within the country’s Catholic Church.
