Roman Catholic Nun are known for their sternness and strict disciplinary method of grooming the children under their care. However, a nun teaching in a school in the town of Kysucke, Nove Mestro in Northern Slovakia took discipline a bit too far by stabbing a boy on the hand with a needle to emphasize a point on how Jesus suffered, as reported in The Mirror.UK.
Sister Ludovita was teaching in a class consisting of 7 year old students, when she summoned a boy, Adam Calko, 7 to the front of the class and stabbed him on the hand with a needle she took from her bag to demonstrate how Jesus Christ suffered on the crucifix in front of his shocked classmates.
The boy’s outraged 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 spokesman for the school said:
“We strongly disapprove of this sort of teaching method, as reported in The Mirror. UK.
“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.
