    Catholic history is filled with women who became martyrs to their own purity: Saint Agatha had her breasts torn off for refusing to marry; Saint Lucy was burned alive and stabbed in the throat for defending her virginity; Saint Maria Goretti was 11 years old [url=http://www.buyusacigarettes.com]Online Cigarettes Store USA and Buy Cigarettes Online[/url] when she was killed by a man who tried to rape her.

    "It is a sin!" Maria is said to have cried out. "God does not want it!"

    But for a nun, fighting off a priest's advances means pinballing through centuries-old sexual and clerical traditions. Celibacy is a cornerstone of Catholic religious life, as is sexual purity among nuns. Many nuns say a sister who admits to a sexual experience — even if it's forced — faces the risk of isolation within her order, and possibly even expulsion.

    "You're not sure if you'll be kept in your congregation, because so much is about your vow of chastity," said Sister Shalini Mulackal, a New Delhi-based theologian. "That fear is there for the young ones to disclose what has happened to them."

    At the same time, priests are seen as living representatives of Christ, with obedience [url=http://www.buyusacigarettes.com]Newport cigarettes,newport box 100s menthol cigarettes[/url] to them another Catholic cornerstone.

    Then there is the isolation of young women struggling to find their way in new communities after leaving their homes.

    Caught at this intersection of sexual taboo, Catholic hierarchy and loneliness, sisters can be left at the mercy of predatory priests.

    "There's a lot of emotion bottled up and when a little tenderness is shown by somebody it can be so easy for you to cross boundaries," said Sister Dorothy Fernandes, who has spent years working with the urban poor in eastern India. "It can be hard to tell what is love and what is exploitation."
