The nuns served in the Diocese of Matagalpa — whose bishop, Rolando Álvarez, is under house arrest in Managua — and dedicated themselves to praying the rosary in the cathedral and promoting adoration of the Blessed Sacrament.
The Mexico-based congregation reported yesterday on Facebook that the last nuns had arrived from Nicaragua.
A source close to the congregation, who asked to remain anonymous for security reasons, said that “their departure was due to the pressure exerted by government workers to know where each contribution the sisters received came from, even the smallest small donations.”
The source said the demand was absurd, because the nuns, like the parishes, subsisted “from the offerings that our faithful give.”
In addition, “the residence permit of the foreign sisters was not renewed and they had to leave the country” before the rest of the sisters.
