Nun Stabs Boy In Hand To Teach Him ‘How Jesus Suffered’
When we were at school, we had a mock crown of thorns plonked on our head to demonstrate what Jesus went through on his way to the cross.
But one nun took it a little bit too far when she stabbed a schoolboy in the hand so he could experience the suffering of Jesus.
Sister Ludovita, 30, had been giving an RE class at a school in the town of Kysucke, Nove Mesto in northern Slovakia when she beckoned a boy to the front of the class.
She then reportedly proceeded to take a needle from her handbag before ramming it into the hand of seven-year-old Adam Celko, and told him that this was how Jesus suffered.
She also said that he too would experience a similar fate if he behaved badly.
Adam’s mum Helena, 30, said: ‘When Adam got home, he had a wound on the back of his hand and when I asked him what had happened he told me the nun had done it.
‘I was completely shocked. I mean, what on earth was she thinking?’
‘And with Easter coming I began to worry about what she would do next – crucify one of the students or hammer a nail into their hands?’
A school spokesman said: ‘We strongly disapprove of this sort of teaching method.
‘When I contacted the Sister she told me that the class had been learning about Jesus Christ and personal sin.’
‘She added that the children had been invited to voluntarily experience mild pain so they could empathise with the theme.
‘She said she had invited the pupils to prick themselves if they wanted to but were not forced to.
‘She denies stabbing the boy and says he did it himself.
‘Either way this is inappropriate behaviour and will not be tolerated in this school.
