Vatican meets #MeToo: Nuns denounce their abuse by priests

Vatican meets #MeToo: Nuns denounce their abuse by priestsThe nun no longer goes to confession regularly, after an Italian priest forced himself on her while she was at her most vulnerable: recounting her sins to him in a university classroom nearly 20 years ago.
