Roman Catholic nun who left her convent in India after 33 years of
service has penned an unflattering picture of life within the
cloistered walls in a book that may further embarrass the Church.

In “Amen: The Autobiography of a Nun”, published in India in English
this month, Sister Jesme tells of sexual relations between some priests
and nuns, homosexuality in the convent and discrimination and
corruption in Catholic institutions…

“Amen” grabbed media headlines in February, when it was first published in Malayalam
— the regional language of Kerala. With the new English edition and
offers of a film based on the book, Sister Jesme’s plea for a
reformation of the Church is now set to reach a wider audience.
