(April 5, 2015) An over-zealous nun stabbed a schoolboy in the hand with a needle to show him how Jesus suffered.
Sister Ludovita, 30, had been giving RE classes at a school in the town of Kysucke Nove Mesto in northern Slovakia when she told unsuspecting pupil Adam Celko, 7, to come to the front of the class.
She then took a needle out of her handbag and rammed it into the boy’s hand in front of the horrified class, telling him that this was how Jesus suffered - and he would too if he behaved badly.
The boy’s outraged mum Helena, 30, said: "When Adam got home he had a wound on the back of his hand and when I asked him what had happened he told me the nun had done it.
"I was completely shocked. I mean, what on earth was she thinking?
"And with Easter coming I began to worry about what she would do next - crucify one of the students or hammer a nail into their hands?"
A spokesman for the school said: "We strongly disapprove of this sort of teaching method.
