From USA Today:
Pope Francis’ acknowledgement aboard the papal plane this week that nuns have suffered sexual abuse by priests and even bishops — including nuns in the U.S. — caught many off guard with its frankness.
But it wasn’t exactly new information, according to U.S. women leaders within the Catholic Church. In a statement issued Thursday, the Leadership Conference of Women Religious, the largest association representing nuns in the U.S., said that while this problem is prevalent mostly in developing countries — there have been many cases in Africa, and last year a nun in India accused a priest of repeatedly raping her between 2014 and 2016 — it has gone on in the U.S., too.
