One the one hand, they broke their vow of chastity.

On the other, they didn't use contraception?


Artificial contraception is against the church rules.

But if chastity is to be broken, maybe contraception should also be.

What I meant to say was that they broke one rule, but at least observed another in the process.

In hindsight I agree those were two crappy sentences.

They obviously slipped and fell on some sticky holy water.

The same thing happened to Mary.

Africa can be a Violent continent, some areas have a strong rape culture. Contraceptive are rarely used. My heart goest out to the nuns.

I'm not seeing any claim as to rape.

Culture or otherwise you would think they might have mentioned something like that.

One of the nuns reportedly is a Mother Superior


Hopefully she will also be a superior mother.

This happens.
Its the will of survival of the species.

Those threats are part of the reason they are there. They are doing god's work and showing great bravery.
It used to be they stayed cloistered away in the convent never knowing anything of the outside world.
Not now. Now they do missionary work to help communities. They know the risks and choose to do the work regardless of them.

It took me decades to see the first as an achievement.


As a defense mechanism, of course.

ETA - I was thinking on this further and now I'm curious: is this one of those "in for a penny, in for a pound" scenarios? Might as well get third trimester abortions...

Probably just average, like most folks.
As a Mother-Superior: she has probably spent years chastising younger nuns for their 'curiosities', and telling them not to do things, that she was secretly doing.

She's already proven that she don't walk the walk.

Supposing that there is no mention of rape in the story.
But we have heard before that some priests put sexual pressure on nuns, to get them 'serviced'.
So possibly not rape, but just HPS. ( Horny-Priest-syndrome. )

I knew there had to be a plausible explanation.

I think i might have found the daddies.

If it was rape, I doubt they'd want to have it get out and totally negate their "vow of chastity", even though in this case that fact would become obvious in a few months unless they tried to hide it...right? Whatever the reason the outcome was that they came back with little hitchhikers on board, and have a lot to explain! Most especially the Superior.

Att: DictionaryofExcuses...WHY would they just arbitrarily be using birth control? They're Catholic...unless something major has changed I thought they were against being responsible by using birth control. And I wouldn't think they would assume they'd need it just because they were going to Africa. Just seems like a strange kind of question/statement to throw out there....
