Inside the sacred Cow
Lost between human rights violations and sincere dedication, supporting Love of souls and horrendous abuse, offering life of a lot sacrifice and a lot of lies, established in 1946, the Missionaries of Charity congregation is today among the most controversial formations within the Catholic Church, it’s next “ Boston scandal” and ‘Cologne report” in the making.
In my book, I want to offer a human rights defence and queer feminist Global south centered look on the order, its history and its degradation. Tell stories of those whose voices are silenced, and unheard, and the stories of those who see their religious duty in silencing abuse survivors.
I will talk about racism- of a congregation in which white sisters do the talking and black ones do the working. Of class differences, in which sisters from richer backgrounds enjoy service in what literally is experienced as a different order. Of labor, domestic and sexual abuse, entangling every bit of structure. My own view as a survivor, and my view as a human rights defender, nowadays working in the frontlines of 'worst case’ scenarios.
This book is about my own 12 years within this ” Sacred cow” of the Catholic Church, and how I learned, the hard way, that this Cow is the Golden Calf.
