After years of awaiting Vatican approval for the sale of the sprawling $14.5 million Los Feliz hilltop convent/really great find, Katy Perry met ambassador of Christ and final arbiter of his properties, the Pope. Perry, her mom, and current boyfriend Orlando Bloom came for an international summit on curing cancer, where she was to speak about “meditation”–which, by the way, did she mention is an excellent use for prayer quarters and reflecting pools with water features? She did!

In 2015, the Los Angeles Times reported that Perry has declared her intentions for the property to the previous tenants, the Sisters of the Immaculate Heart of Mary:

Sister Rita said that at the meeting with Perry in May, the singer made a fairly good impression, telling the nuns she wanted to live on the property with her mother and grandmother, sit in the meditation garden, sip green tea and find herself.

Today, she again professed the importance of transcendental meditation to balancing life as a pop star with evangelical Christian roots:

I’ve just found it the most productive tool being a creative, being a multi-tasker, being a Millennial...I’m a super sponge, I love information, I love technology, I mean, I grab my phone when I wake up like everyone else, and sometimes that causes my mind to be really exhausted, and I have to reset.

Perry has reportedly spent $2.6 million in a tragic and bitter legal contest against the elderly nuns who inhabited the property for decades, which did not come up.

So I was thinking about how nuns vote and came across this:

Abortion is often seen as an intractable issue. But is it? What’s going on here?

I’m not trolling, I’m genuinely baffled. Where did the 53% come from? And how were they so drastically different from white Catholic women?
