Father Antonio Rungi said he hopes that his proposed Miss Sister Italia contest would show people that their stereotype of nuns as old and sad is wrong, and that sisters can also be beautiful, because beauty is a gift from God.
The candidates that Rungi, a member of the Passionist Order, intends to have as participants of the pageant, should be aged 18 to 40. They would not compete in bathing suits, but rather show their "inner beauty."
Father Rungi said the idea had been suggested to him by nuns, and added that many of them told him they would participate in the contest.

News that Moscow Mayor Sergei Sobyanin would resign in order to run for the mayoral election in September came as quite a shock. Sobyanin’s political potential is fairly dubious, not to mention his approval ratings. He has not finished many of the projects he initiated and the electoral effect from these projects is expected to come a bit later than September 2013. Sobyanin’s opponents were not entirely unprepared for this blitzkrieg.
