Via Liberal England:
[BBC]: A convent in Italy is being shut down after a fight between its last three remaining nuns.
So badly did relations deteriorate between the sisters of Santa Clara in Bari that the Mother Superior ended up in hospital with scratches to her face. [cont]
Somehow neither these nuns nor the ones convinced their Mother Superior is possessed by the BVM seem to fit with my memories of those I knew as a child. Though come to think of it, in most fights I’d have put my money on the Poor Clare known affectionately (and, frankly, accurately) as The Fat Nun*.
*It was a closed order but she was her convent’s external nun, charged with being its link to the outside world. Which meant she was to be found at almost every social event, enthusiastically collecting gossip.
