I used a picture of Sister Bertrille, because she’s one of my favorite nuns of all time. I mean, she can fly! What’s better than that?
The Italian priest, who was putting together an online beauty contest for nuns, has temporarily called off the pageant Jesus probably told him to quit playing games and get to work.
Father Antonio Rungi told Reuters (via MSNBC), “My superiors were not happy. The local bishop was not happy, but they did not understand me either. It was not at all my intention to put nuns on the catwalk.” His superiors probably grounded him by taking away his altar boys for a full week!
Father Tony (can I call him that?) insists the contest wasn’t about outer beauty, but about inner beauty. He said, “We have to draw more attention to the world of nuns, who are often not sufficiently appreciated by society. Many monasteries in Italy are dying because of a lack of religious vocations.”
Father Tony needs to put down the communion wine, because earlier he said he wanted to show the world that not all nuns are “old and dowdy.”
He said he plans to do the beauty contest sometime in the near future. Well, I guess this means I should also postpone my plans for a wet thong contest for priests.
