Sr. Meena, the raped nun, A Testimony to Living Faith and Forgiveness - International - Catholic Online


  1. Sr. Meena, what a brave, courageous person!

    I recall a Ursuline nun, Sr. Dianna Ortiz, 39, who in 1989 was abducted by Guatemalan security forces, then tortured in many different ways and gang raped repeatedly. She escaped only to find herself pregnant. Rape led to terminate her pregnancy.

    I remember watching Sister Ortiz’s Mother Superior on television. She stood by the Roman Catholic Church’s teaching about abortion. But made a strong point, what happened to Sister Dianna Ortiz was between her and God. To this day Sr. Dianna is still a nun.

    I do need to remember to pray for those who work in dangerous zones. Especially the missionaries.

This is one of the greatest blessings that we have received as a parish. Anytime a religious vocation comes forward from a parish community, many graces flow back to the local church. I can only pray that as the Sisters of Life establish their ministry in Canada that more and more women will join
