(AP) A landmark church sex-abuse trial in Philadelphia has entered its third week with testimony from a nun who said she was fired from a suburban parish for complaining about a priest.

Sister Joan Scary said Monday she lost her job at St. Gabriel's in the Montgomery County town of Stowe after she complained to Cardinal Anthony Bevilacqua (beh-vih-LAH'-kwah) about the Rev. Edward DePaoli. She said she was concerned about a men's magazine DePaoli received in the mail.

DePaoli was at St. Gabriel's after being convicted in 1986 of using the mail to buy child porn.

Prosecutors are trying to show that Monsignor William Lynn transferred predator priests into unwitting parishes.

He is on trial with the Rev. James Brennan, who is charged with molesting a 14-year-old boy in 1996. Both have pleaded not guilty.
