Kochi: The Vatican has rejected a second appeal by Sister Lucy Kalappura against her expulsion from Franciscan Clarist Congregation (FCC).
She was one of those nuns who demanded action against rape accused Bishop Franco Mulakkal. Sister Lucy Kalappura took part in public protests urging the arrest of the Bishop, in accordance to which she was later expelled from the FCC.
In her plea, she sought to hear her version and revoke the expulsion from FCC.
In a letter received from the Vatican, it says that her appeal has been rejected. But the remaining part of the letter is written in Latin.
“The authorities are contemptuous of those who make such complaints. That is why the letter is written in Latin. Sister Lucy would continue her legal fight in the courts,” said spokesperson George Moolechalil.
