    When you see a thread title like that, you expect some sort of massive courtroom fight (preferably on video) between Katy Perry and a bunch of penguins leaping over the tables to attack each other. The judge impotently banging a gavel and yelling "Order!" and calling for the bailiffs. The bloodied and bruised combatants being pulled apart and then someone looking around and asking, "Where's Sister Margaret?" and there she is lying still off to the side and shes isn't breathing.
    That's how I'm choosing to remember it.

    Too young? Aww, that's cute. I remember her, and Sr Janet Mead (local groover in a habit who rocked out to the Lord's Prayer) but my advanced age has fortunately blocked those from my consciousness.

    What a beautiful example of spiritual folk music. I myself am quite fond of the dulcet tones of the Order of St. Beryl: Example Song

    Here's an interview with the head of the Order in 1965:

    Quoted for truth. I totally believe she did some black magic shit and made the poor old lady drop dead or maybe she just started singing.

    Just out of curiosity, can someone tell me how these nuns were able to 'own' this property when they are supposed to forgo worldly possessions?

    ^^Especially after they had moved out years before when they decided to form their "own" group away from the church?

    I think they broke away decades ago but still lived there until 2011 when the Archdiocese forced them out.

    I find it completely believable that they had paperwork but couldn't produce it, and that they don't realize they're being scammed by the boutique hotel person. My usually reasonably intelligent 88-year-old father was ready to get a new roof for $27k because a pushy, charming, goodlooking salesman talked at him for hours. Last year he almost undersold our house and signed up for a reverse mortgage because the salespeople talked a good game. Also, he miraculously can never find any important papers even when he and I repeatedly sort through and store papers carefully. Not having the documents in court sounds just like something that would happen with my dad. Getting old sucks.

    If they were already the true owners of the property, how could the archdiocese force them out? Wouldn't they have to go to court and prove which one was the true owner?

    After going to catholic school (thankfully only one year, but that was more than enough), nuns are mean, sexually repressed hags. Sorry! (not sorry)

    True... I dunno, there's a lot of weird stuff going on in this story. I was thinking the convent might belong to their order and that's why they own it. I wouldn't put it past an archdiocese to steamroll over a couple of nuns and lose anything that isn't to their (the archdiocese's) benefit.

    The red flag for me is that they gave up wearing habits decades ago and are suddenly wearing them for court. Maybe I'm as gullible as my father!

    Still, it's tough to side with Katy Perry on anything.

    I don't have any specific love for Katy Perry, but it sounds like she didn't really do anything wrong other than purchase a property that the legal system said she could buy.
    Not to mention that whole vow of poverty thing.

    Ummm, how are you ALL missing the point that Katy kissed a girl and she liked it.

    What about poverty of the spirit? Maybe they took a really specific vow and just ignored the material poverty aspect.

    I had over a decade in the Catholic system, and to be fair some of the nuns were amazing, really caring ladies who loved kids - my kindergarten teacher was like a kind old aunty, and my second-grade nun was awesome and in high school took a bunch of us to our first ever concert - ABBA! Hard to have bad memories of that. But a lot of them were as you say, mean and hateful old bags who hated young girls, especially the cute ones. It probably didn't help that I called them Jesus Groupies. Well they were! "I'm married to Jesus!", yeah right, and I'm married to Andy Gibb.
