Francis praises Nun for Building Homes for Transgenders, says: “God … did not go to the Seminary or study Theology”
It is no secret that in the world of Jorge Bergoglio, the peripheries are at the center; and in Argentina, that is precisely where Mónica Astorga Cremona is.
Called the “nun of the trans”, she is a Discalced Carmelite religious who works with so-called “transsexual” or “transgender” people, specifically “trans women.” The latter are biological males who consider themselves women and dress accordingly. Not only do they wear women’s clothes, they also change their hair, face, and bodily features as much as possible to appear like women.
This phenomenon is one of those things that ought “not so much as be named among you” (Eph 5:3), but it is not new. In the Pentateuch already, Moses warned: “A woman shall not be clothed with man’s apparel, neither shall a man use woman’s apparel: for he that doeth these things is abominable before God” (Deut 22:5).
According to a news report of Aug. 14, the Argentinian city of Neuquén now has the country’s first “trans neighborhood”, courtesy of Sister Monica: “The first housing complex for transexual people in Argentina, according to the promoters of the project, was inaugurated this week in the city of Neuquén, in Argentine Patagonia, at the initiative of a nun on land made available to her convent by the administration of the city and with funds from the provincial government…” (“First trans neighborhood in Argentina: initiative of a nun”, Yahoo News, Aug. 14, 2020).
A Spanish news report on this, which includes a photo of some of those “women” Sr. Monica works with, can be found here. A video clip that shows scenes from the inauguration of the housing complex and also includes a brief interview with the Discalced Novus Ordo Carmelite (in Spanish), is available here.
The new homes for cross-dressing sodomites are only half the story, however. The other half is that “Pope” Francis, who knows Sr. Monica personally from his days in Buenos Aires, has given the project his full endorsement:
According to the nun, she had written to the pope telling him about the inauguration of her new housing complex, and received a reply telling her that, “God who did not go to the seminary or study theology will repay you abundantly” for the work she has done.
In the brief response, Francis told her that he is praying for her and the transgender women [sic] she is assisting, adding, “Don’t forget to pray for me. May Jesus bless you and the Holy Virgin guide you.”
“He never opposed what I do, and for me it is a great support,” [Sr. Monica] said, recalling one visit from then-Cardinal Jorge Mario Bergoglio in 2009 in which he told her not to abandon her “border work, which the Lord gave you,” and to contact him if she were ever in need.
In a letter received from Francis in 2017, the pope had told Astorga Cremona that he was praying for her and her convent, and on another occasion, he wrote expressing opposition to discrimination against transgender individuals, saying, “at the time of Jesus, lepers were discarded like this.”

Many more details are available in this Crux report, of which we cannot quote more here due to copyright restrictions.
In the above excerpt, we have underlined two specific quotes from Francis. The first one — “God … did not go to the seminary or study theology” — is a comment so remarkably asinine that no one but the pseudo-pope himself could have authored it. It goes to confirm once more the adage that if one has nothing intelligent to say, it is better to keep silent and let people suspect one is a fool, rather than open one’s mouth and remove all doubt.
The second underlined comment from Francis is an outrage typical of Francis’ liberation theology and his obsession with the “marginalized.” It is outrageous because it equates suffering from leprosy, which is obviously not a moral fault at all, with habitual sins of impurity so vile that they cry to heaven for vengeance. The “trans women” we are talking about are male sodomites, many of whom, according to the Crux report, are (or recently were) prostitutes.
Of course, that is not to say that one is permitted to “discard” anyone. Rescuing the poor from poverty, giving the homeless a home, helping the unemployed find work — such are important corporal works of mercy. Insofar as Sr. Monica is doing that, she is doing a good thing: “…for the past 14 years she has worked with transgender women, encouraging them to stop addiction and helping them to get out of prostitution…”, the Crux article notes. Bravo!
What is not morally permissible, however, is to recognize and affirm these men in their perverted inclinations, in their confused sexuality, in their claim to being women — especially not under the pretext of “human dignity”. Yet that is precisely what is done by building a housing complex specifically for “transgenders.” Nor is it acceptable that “[f]our of the new tenants have moved in with their partners”, for that is at least an implicit approval of sodomy, and it puts the individuals in question into a constant occasion of unnatural vice.
Not surprisingly, however, that is entirely in line with Francis’ “New Morality” (aka “situation ethics”), enunciated in the infernal exhortation Amoris Laetitia. Remember?

The fact that unrepentant “transgender” people can receive the Novus Ordo version of Holy Communion in the Vatican II Sect, goes without saying — at least as long as they’re also Communists. Just ask “Cardinal” Angelo Bagnasco.
It is clear, therefore, that here we are not dealing merely with an effort to help sexually-confused souls caught up in mortal sin to attain eternal salvation by providing for their legitimate material and spiritual needs. That would be eminently laudable. Rather, this is about affirming cross-dressing sodomites precisely as cross-dressing sodomites and accepting their “identities.” But that is something our Blessed Lord Jesus Christ, who was kind to sinners, did not do and did not instruct us to do.
When Christ generously forgave the adulteress, His words “Neither will I condemn thee” were immediately followed with: “Go, and now sin no more” (Jn 8:11). When our Lord conversed with the Samaritan woman at the well, He did not “accompany” her or try to find “good elements” in her sinful situation. Rather, He told her candidly: “…he whom thou now hast, is not thy husband” (Jn 4:18). This He did, not in order simply to shame her but because He sought her salvation.
When St. Paul wrote to the Corinthians, he instructed them to marginalize notorious unrepentant sinners in the Church, to have nothing to do with them: “But now I have written to you, not to keep company, if any man that is named a brother, be a fornicator, or covetous, or a server of idols, or a railer, or a drunkard, or an extortioner: with such a one, not so much as to eat. …Put away the evil one from among yourselves” (1 Cor 5:11,13).
Lastly, let us recall that in 2018, Francis heretically claimed that “without [women], men cannot be the image and likeness of God”. What that means for “transsexuals” in the pseudo-pope’s mind, is not clear, but surely one day his “god of surprises” will clarify.
Even if he didn’t study theology or go to seminary.
