(ZENIT News / San José de Costa Rica, 07.07.2022).- On Wednesday, July 6, Daniel Ortega’s regime carried out the sentence of expulsion of Mother Teresa of Calcutta’s nuns, who had been in Nicaragua since 1988. Two days earlier they were subjected to siege and surveillance. On the 6th of July agents of the Nicaraguan Government and the Police took the 20 or so nuns of the Community to the border with Costa Rica. Among them were two Nicaraguan nuns. Left behind not only was their residence but the hundreds of people the nuns looked after who are now abandoned.
The diocese of Tilarán – Liberia destroyed some of the photographs of their exodus, as they were expelled from the interior of Nicaragua, specifically from Granada and Managua and taken to the border with Costa Rica. They were able to cross the border thanks to the welcome of that Costa Rican diocese. In fact, Bishop Manuel Eugenio Salazar personally sent Catholic priests to receive the nuns. “We comforted them and dried tears,” said the Bishop in videos posted on the social networks, adding that “if it was up to them, they would have stayed in Nicaragua. They love Nicaragua, the Nicaraguan people, especially the poorest and neediest.”
