He is asking nuns to send their photos to him, saying that internet users will then choose the winner. Father Rungi stressed that nuns were not being invited to parade in bathing suits (for shame!), saying it will be up to them whether they pose with the traditional veil or with their heads uncovered. "This contest will be a way to show there isn't just the beauty we see on television but also a more discreet charm," he said "You really think all nuns are old, stunted and sad? This isn't the case anymore," he said, pointing out that many young nuns had arrived to Italy from around the world.
He added that the idea of staging such a contest had been suggested by nuns themselves...
Hmm.... on the other hand when lined up against the Craggy island v Rugged Island all priests over 75 five a side football match it’s pretty mild!
Sadly FrRungi has cancelled the contest, claiming that his intentions were misunderstood.
“I wanted to make a blog on vocations, one where everybody could bring their own experiences. “I wanted to create a showcase for the pastoral experience of nuns.Instead, they made it look like it was a catwalk a la Miss Italy,” he said. “I have been misunderstood.”
Ah well it was a wonderful if absurd idea!
