Vatican fires Mother Superior Evicts Rebellious Nuns

clipped from

Polish police stormed a convent today and evicted more than 60 ex-nuns after the Vatican fired their mother superior.

Q1x00243_9"When the Vatican formally expelled the nuns in 2006, they refused to leave the building, cutting themselves off from the outside world," the Associated Press reports. "The church eventually sought legal action to remove them, and a court in nearby Pulawy ordered the eviction — a step they had previously resisted. The convent's electricity was cut off earlier this year, but local residents sympathized with the ex-nuns' plight and secretly funneled them food in the night."

AP says it took several hours for police to remove the women, some of whom attacked the officers with an "onslaught of verbal aggression."
