#TodayInDevelopment: Kerela Church Dismisses Nun For Protesting Sexual Assault By Priest

Publishing poems, learning to drive, buying a car, and supporting the protests against rape accused Bishop Franco Mulakkal: Kerela-based nun Sister Lucy Kalappura’s crimes against the church. The church dismissed from the congregation on August 5. this year. The Vatican confirmed her dismissal.

Yet, Sister Lucky joined protests led by four nuns of Missionaries of Jesus in September, 2018. An exemplary member of the church, Sister Lucy’s life changed after she joined the protests. After the protest. the church banned Sister Lucy from teaching the Bible. It disallowed her from attending prayers, worship services and other activities of the parish, including offering holy communion.

In a country that purportedly aims at empowering its women, Sister Lucy Kalappura’s only real transgression was speaking up against what was wrong; her only fault was to point out the criminal activities of powerful men.
