Buying car, not submitting salary: Why congregation expelled nun
The aforementioned expelled nun is Sister Lucy, who shot to popularity after she participated in a protest against Mulakkal.
In the order, the congregation said the action was taken against Lucy as she violated dress code, bought a car, disobeyed orders, was involved in large monetary transactions by publishing a book, releasing music CD, didn't submit her salary to the convent, and made media appearances since September 2018.
"My colleagues in the convent keep smiling, talking among themselves. They have completely isolated me. The congregation targeted me only because I spoke up against Bishop Franco, because I supported the nun who was fighting for justice. Because I stood by her," she went on.
Lucy added she was tired of hearing the words obedience and disobedience.
"Obedience is not just about shutting one's eyes and saying 'yes'. How is that wrong if I'm using it for God's work, which is my duty as a nun? The CD has worship songs that I wrote by myself," she said.
