Are India's Nuns Rebelling against a Top Cardinal "Pet" of Francis because he purportedly "Shield[ed]" one of his Bishop who allegedly "13 Times" Raped a "Former Religious Superior"?
Cardinal Oswald Gracias, who is a member of the eight-member Council of Cardinals of Francis's governing board, is according to Rebel Priest editor Dr. Jules Gomes a "pet prelate" of Francis.
The top Cardinal Gracias appears to possibly have a rebellion of nuns on his hands because they are demanding justice "after a former religious superior accused Bishop Franco Mulakkal of Jalandhar of raping her" according to Catholic News Service:
The protest was to demand justice after a former religious superior accused Bishop Franco Mulakkal of Jalandhar of raping her. Indian nuns questioned the church’s silence in the rape case and expressed support for the complainant nun after a court acquitted Bishop Mulakkal of all charges Jan. 14, 2022...
... “As women religious, we express our solidarity with the victim-survivor and her companions, who have walked with the victim with a lot of courage, dignity and determination in their fight for justice,” the Conference of Religious India said in a letter to Cardinal Oswald Gracias...
... Apostolic Carmel Sister Maria Nirmalini, the newly appointed national president of the conference of religious, said she had been inundated with phone calls from both religious men and women as well as laypeople from around India after Mulakkal’s acquittal Jan. 14.
“The issue here is not that most religious women are completely taken aback with a totally unexpected verdict against the sister, but a section of the clergy and people have been celebrating the verdict as a victory for the church,” Nirmalini said.“Right from the beginning of the case, the victim sister and her companions were subjected to all kinds of innuendos and insults. Hardly any church authorities supported them. How come a bishop who is accused of rape is part of the church and the victim, along with her supporters, are not?” asked Nirmalini, who as the Conference of Religious India president represents close to 125,000 Catholic religious.
A trial court in the southern state of Kerala exonerated the prelate of all charges, including raping the former superior general of the Missionaries of Jesus, a congregation under his patronage. The court said the prosecution “failed to prove the charges against the accused.”
The nun had accused Mulakkal of raping her 13 times during his visit to her convent in Kerala between 2014 and 2016.
Referring to reports of the nun and the prosecution planning to appeal the verdict, the letter said. [https://cruxnow.com/church-in-asia/2022/01/indian-nuns-decry-church-silence-on-rape-case-ask-where-women-can-get-help]
Many in India including a chief justice consider their court system to be corrupt where the " judiciary... can be bought" so the bishop's acquittal to the nuns and others appears to be suspect:
Pray an Our Father now for reparation for the sins committed because of Francis's Amoris Laetitia.
