- CRITTER TALK
While there are still millions of faithful who believe that the mother of Jesus, Mary, was conceived without sex, and was, in fact, still a virgin, there are also millions who think it absolute nonsense. In the case of the Italian nun who became pregnant however, there is little doubt as to the reason for her conception.
In a not-so surprising development, a woman in Italy has named her newborn son after the pope. In a more surprising development, she happens to be a nun. The 31-year-old Reiti woman went to the hospital complaining of stomach pains and reportedly rejected the doctors’ crazy suggestion that she was about to have a baby, reports theTelegraph. “It’s not possible, I’m a nun,” the Italian press quotes her as saying. They were right, she was wrong, and little Francis soon entered the world, reports the BBC.
The unidentified nun worked in an old folks’ home, but the common wisdom is that she got pregnant on a visit to her homeland of El Salvador, and it was doubtful it was an immaculate conception. “It seems she was not able to resist temptation,” says the wise mother superior of her convent. Or former convent: The local bishop says she’s getting the boot for breaking her vow of chastity. The diocese and local residents are collecting donations for the newly formed family.
Praise the Lord and pass the condoms.
