Although their practice is mostly supported, Sister Kate says that they also get a lot of hate calls.  

“We’ve gotten a few hate calls but by and far the Catholics understand what we’re doing.” 

“The minute they look beneath the surface and see we are dealing with cancer patients and are serious women on a serious mission, they don’t really hold any grudge against us,” she added.

The sisters’ healing business is still technically illegal as it marijuana is legalized in India but not at a federal level.

She also said that the local authorities are watching them closely and they have to spend a lot of their earnings on security.

All these sisters refer themselves as nuns because they are there to heal the sick.
