Pregnant Nun Didn’t Know She Was Pregnant

31 year-old nun Roxana Rodriguez from the Little Disciples of Jesus convent in Rieti, Italy, received the shock of her life when she delivered a healthy baby boy, on Wednesday.

Apparently, Rodriguez did not know that she was expecting, and only realized she was when she started to feel intense stomach pains.

“I did not know I was pregnant. I only felt a stomach pain,” she said. When the stomach pains became too much for her to bare, Rodriguez made her way to Camillo De Lellis hospital, where doctors informed her that she was pregnant, and would be delivering the baby very soon.

The question is…how would a nun become pregnant when nuns are supposed to take vows of chastity and obedience? While Rodriguez suggests that it could have very well been immaculate conception, others aren’t buying it. Did Rodriguez cave under pressure?

I guess we will never know for sure, but one thing is for sure, she will no longer be accepted back at the nunnery.

“It would be preferable that she now lead a secular life with her baby, away from religious institutions,” a spokesman for the local bishop said.

Rodriguez named her baby boy Francesco, which also happens to be the name of the current Pope and St. Francis of Assisi, the country’s national patron saint.

    What seems the most obvious to me is the media’s incompetence.
    Firstly, how long has ms. rodriguez been a nun?
    Second, at what point in time did she come from El Salvadore to Italy?
    And last, was she possibly a victim of rape or sexual abuse in the recent past?
    None of these questions were addressed in the articles i have read.
    For some people, there is more concern for secrecy connected to a rape than the secrecy the church seems to give to a natural act, such as childbirth.
    Babies are born to all kinds of circumstances. What is the REAL issue here?

    Give me a break I’ve heard every excuse for women like this! It was rape! I’ve been a nun only for 2 years & I had sex right before I became a nun! I was dancing to close to a male and he must’ve been Erect! Hey maybe she was twerking w/a priest! Do a DNA test and interview her male “Friends” & then we will know who gave her baby Jesus!

    Give her a break, over 400 priests have been caught doing a lot worse and one Nun makes a mistake and gets plastered all over the net…who among you can cast the first stone……

    I really feel bad for her. Perhaps she was raped or had sex consentually with a man. Either way she is only human & should not be ostracized by the Catholic church. How many priests have raped little boys & gotten away with it and are still priests today. Give this poor woman a break & let her be.

    In my opinion this is something very beautiful. Im happy for her. Best,from all gifts,is to have your child. Congratulations to new mom and her beautiful babe boy.As mom, I feel very sad when ever I see nuns and know they are not supposed to be mothers .This one nun is really blessed with most beautiful gift.:)

    I,m not angry wth the Nun being pregnant or giving birth.My anger is her response “its not possible, im a Nun”.Let her say whether she slept wth any man or not.
