CATHOLIC NUN GIVES BIRTH-NAMES BABY AFTER POPE
happening? Another shocking scandal has been recorded in the heart of the Catholic church.
A nun who said she had no idea she was pregnant gave birth in Italy this week after she felt stomach cramps in her convent and was rushed to hospital, Italian media reported on Friday.
The 31-year-old nun and her baby boy, who weighs 3.5 kilogrammes (nine pounds), are doing well and some new mothers in Rieti hospital have begun collecting clothes and donations for her, the reports said.
“I did not know I was pregnant. I only felt a stomach pain,”
The Salvadorean nun was quoted as saying at the hospital. La Repubblica said she gave birth on Wednesday.
ANSA said the nun had named her baby Francesco (Francis) — which is the new pope’s chosen title and one of the most popular names in Italy, where St Francis of Assisi is the much-loved national patron saint.
The nun, who is yet to name the man who impregnated her, belongs to the “Little Disciples of Jesus” convent in Campomoro near Rieti, which manages an old people’s home and reports said she would keep the baby.
Her fellow nuns say they were “very surprised” by what has happened. Source: KRMG news
