I’ve always heard how Catholic school nuns are pretty strict, but this seems over the top even for them:
Sister Ludovita, 30, had been giving [religious education] classes at a school in the town of Kysucke Nove Mesto in northern Slovakia when she told unsuspecting pupil Adam Celko, 7, to come to the front of the class.
She then took a needle out of her handbag and rammed it into the boy’s hand in front of the horrified class, telling him that this was how Jesus suffered — and he would too if he behaved badly.
The teacher claims she didn’t do it and that the boy did it himself… but even if this was voluntary, what sort of lesson plan includes the line, “Have the students stab themselves”?
Local priest Peter Holbicka said: “The Sister in question has been removed from the school and I shall be taking the matter up with her personally.”
