It’s easy to find Teresa Forcades in the crowd at Barcelona’s airport. She’s wearing a nun’s habit.
Sister Forcades is Spain’s most famous living nun. She’s a medical doctor with a master’s degree from Harvard. She’s a feminist who’s been reprimanded by the Vatican for supporting abortion rights. She’s a Benedictine nun in a country where the Catholic Church has historically sided with fascists.
And she’s hugely popular.
