Holy Show

Sisters please!

NUNS, LET THEM out of their convent for the day and they’ll make a complete holy show of you.

That’s exactly what happened when this group of cloistered nuns left their nunnery in Naples to meet Pope Francis.

All hell (or perhaps heaven) broke loose.

First, the nuns were introduced by Cardinal Crescenzio Sepe and began waving frantically at the Pontiff.

Then, without warning, they were unleashed to shower gifts and adoration on the unsuspecting Pope. Poor Francis didn’t know what hit him.

The nuns had to be restrained by security but Cardinal Sepe thought it was only hilarious altogether, joking :

“And these are the cloistered ones. Just imagine the non-cloistered ones? They are going to eat him! Sisters . . sisters!”
