Priest accused of inviting two nuns to take part in ‘Holy Trinity’ threesome

A Jesuit priest who is reportedly close to Pope Francis has been accused of inviting two nuns to a ‘Holy Trinity’ threesome – and now faces allegations of sexual and spiritual abuse dating back decades.

A former nun claims Marko Ivan Rupnik used his “psycho-spiritual” control over her some three decades ago to get her to watch porn films and have group sex sessions, which he said had religious significance .

Rupnik, 68, was the spiritual director of a monastery in Slovenia and has created mosaics for churches including a papal chapel in the Vatican.

The former nun told Italian newspaper Domani that “Father Marko began to slowly and gently invade my psychological and spiritual world, exploiting my insecurities and fragility and using my relationship with God to urge me to have sexual experiences with Him,” according to the Daily Mail.

She said that during her time at the Solvenian monastery between 1987 and 1994, Rupnik nursed her, had sex with her and urged her to remain silent about the abuse.

The former nun also claimed Rupnik asked her and another nun to have a threesome with him, saying they would repeat the threesome relationship between God the Father, Jesus and the Holy Spirit.

Rupnik abused up to 20 women, the woman claimed. She said her first complaint about his abuse was in 1994 but she was ignored by Rupnik’s supporters in both Slovenia and Rome.

“It was really an abuse of conscience,” she said.

After an investigation, it was determined that the women’s claims about Rupnik are true.

The women who accused Rupnik “saw their lives ruined by the evil suffered and the complicit silence of the Church,” Bishop Daniele Libanori said in a letter on Sunday.

He urged members of the church who had kept quiet about Rupnik’s crimes to “humbly ask the world for forgiveness of the scandal.”

The Vatican Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith excommunicated Rupnik in May 2020, then lifted it that same month and declined to prosecute Rupnik, even after nine women made similar allegations a year later.

The congregation, which is run by Jesuits, said the cases are past the statute of limitations and too old to prosecute, as they mostly took place in the 1990s.
