Get thee to a nunnery

... but get some martial arts training first. Holy rampaging rosaries! Anyone care to take a wild guess at what might bring on something like this:
"So badly did relations deteriorate between the sisters of Santa Clara in Bari that the Mother Superior ended up in hospital with scratches to her face.

Now the local archbishop has intervened and asked the Vatican for permission to close the convent." [...]

"Sisters Annamaria and Gianbattista say they were driven to distraction by the nasty habits of their Mother Superior, Sister Liliana.

They became so angry that during the summer they turned on her, scratching her face and throwing her to the ground."

"Nasty habits" - heh, reminds me of that old Monks album. Aaaaaanyway, I have a couple of theories about what might cause such an eruption, and the Vow Of Chastity figures prominently among them. I wonder if anyone got it on video -- "When good nuns go bad", coming soon to YouTube.
