Vatican reminds cloistered nuns not to tweet too much

VATICAN CITY 

The Vatican has issued new guidelines for cloistered nuns, reminding them that they're supposed to live separated from the world and in silence — and therefore shouldn't be tweeting too much or downloading too much news.

 

The instructions from the Vatican's office for religious orders cover a host of administrative and financial issues. Included are norms for when a monastery must be closed because the number of nuns shrinks to the point that the community is no longer viable — an increasingly frequent occurrence. [Snipped]

PLEASE EXCUSE THE ANNOYING COMMERCIAL BREAKS IN THE CONVERSATION:

As with everything these days, the cost of keeping the Ex-C forum up and running has been rising. Inflation? In part, but the primary reason is this: As participation in the forums grows, costs increase. The Ex-C forums will remain free of charge to everyone, but if you believe this little corner of the Internet provides value to you or others, and you feel inclined to help keep us online, please consider making a one-time donation or becoming a regular contributor. Contribution options appear under the "Upgrade" link above, and can be accessed by clicking here.

Oh, and as an incentive (no, you won't be given any bogus promises of eternal bliss), if you do become a regular contributor by signing up for any monthly or yearly patron package, this annoying ADVO will disappear.

And now, back to the regularly scheduled conversation...

Yeah, we wouldn't want those cloistered nuns to find out about all the abuses that have been going on in the catholic church forever!

     Headline sounds almost like someone tried to censor the pope.  What are them nuns doing that he can't say?
