Dominican Sr. Lucía Caram from Argentina…

Lucía Caram Padilla (b. 1966) is an Argentine Dominican nun living in Barcelona, Spain. She has a history of making heretical, blasphemous, or otherwise scandalous remarks and is a living reminder to the world that simply wearing a religious habit does not make one Catholic, holy, or even just basically decent.

For example, in 2017 Sister Lucia said on Spanish television: “I think Mary was in love with Joseph and that they were a normal couple – and having sex is a normal thing. It’s hard to believe and hard to take in. We’ve ended up with the rules we’ve invented without getting to the true message.” Although she later apologized to those who “felt offended”, she did not retract her remarks:

Caram’s involvement in humanitarian work offering relief to the needy is laudable, but it cannot offset, excuse, or relativize her blasphemies or heresies. No one can truly love his neighbor who does not love God first. Thus, all her naturally good works have no supernatural value at all.

It is not really susprising that Sister Lucia never seems to get disciplined, since that appears to be reserved mostly for those of a traditionalist bent. On the contrary, she is continually present in the public as a ‘Catholic’ voice, and the world loves her. Her very active Twitter account has more than 190,000 followers and almost 44,000 posts. Although supposedly a contemplative, she hosts her own televised recipe show on the Spanish cooking channel Canal Cocina. If only she could stick to that instead of constantly cooking up theological or other trouble, the world would definitely be a better place.

Despite — or, more likely, because of — the foregoing, Caram has ‘Pope’ Francis’ de facto endorsement. On her Twitter profile, she happily displays photos of herself meeting with Francis, including the cropped title image above, and also this one:

Her most recent encounter with ‘His Holiness’ took place on March 13 of this year, when she was part of a delegation of the leftist Spanish Novus Ordo news site Religión Digital to meet ‘unofficially’ with the false pope, who is her compatriot. A photo of the encounter was made available by the digital platform:

Regarding this meeting, Catholic News Agency reported:

The pope’s March 13 audience with Caram and the Religión Digital journalists went unmentioned in the Vatican Press Office’s daily news brief.

In an article, Religión Digital, now in its 25th year, stated that the Holy Father met with its members for half an hour and reportedly encouraged the team: “Do not lose hope. Continue fighting for this living Church and making it known.”

Participating in the audience with the pope were Caram, a Dominican nun; the director of Religión Digital, former priest José Manuel Vidal; journalists José Lorenzo and Jesús Bastante; and Father Ángel García Rodríguez, president of the nongovernmental organization Messengers of Peace.

Topics such as “the Church in Spain, future challenges, his health, extreme critics, the question of seminaries, future trips, and the validation of Vatican II” were discussed.

On Sep. 18, 2023, Sr. Lucia appeared on the Spanish television channel Telecinco for the program Cuentos Chinos with Jorge Javier Vazquez. What she said in response to questions about the topic of sodomy was as intolerable as it was explosive. The recognize-and-resist writers at Tradition in Action reported on this yesterday and released the following video clip, which we have uploaded to our own YouTube channel for wider distribution:

In this clip, Caram states explicitly that she is in favor of ‘gay marriage’ in the Church because “God always blesses love” — an incredible blasphemy! We know from both divine revelation and the natural law that even merely consenting to illicit sexual affections is mortally sinful and therefore not love and not something God blesses: “…whosoever shall look on a woman to lust after her, hath already committed adultery with her in his heart” (Mt 5:28).

If this is true even for two people of the opposite sex who are not married to each other (think: fornication, adultery, solitary sins), how much more so is it the case for those of the same sex, whose very affections are in themselves depraved? Not to mention the unnatural acts to which these affections typically lead! “For this cause God delivered them up to shameful affections. For their women have changed the natural use into that use which is against nature. And, in like manner, the men also, leaving the natural use of the women, have burned in their lusts one towards another, men with men working that which is filthy, and receiving in themselves the recompense which was due to their error” (Rom 1:26-27).

Again and again we find that one simple fact explains the Modernism of people like Sr. Lucia Caram: They simply do not believe. They do not believe what God has revealed. They do not believe in Catholicism! Tragically, however, they present themselves as Catholics and relish their own subversion of Catholicism. It is pure evil!

Asked directly by Vazquez whether two men — specifically, Kiko Hernández and Fran Antón López, two male Spanish actors who had recently ‘gotten married’ — who commit sodomy are sinning by doing so, Caram would not give a straightforward answer, even though only one answer is possible according to Catholic teaching: Yes, and it would be a mortal sin, one of the most depraved acts two men can commit, one that cries to heaven for vengeance!

Instead, the ‘contemplative Dominican nun’ responded evasively: “Committing a sin is very complicated, to want to do evil…” Actually, no, it’s not complicated at all. On account of our fallen human nature (specifically, concupiscence), committing sin comes very easy to us, and even righteous people sin frequently: “For a just man shall fall seven times and shall rise again: but the wicked shall fall down into evil” (Prov 24:16).

Sin originates in the will, and as soon as one has consented to what one knows is (or suspects might be) forbidden by the moral law, sin has been committed. Nor is inculpable ignorance a possible defense here, for, as St. Paul makes clear, even the Gentiles “shew the work of the law written in their hearts, their conscience bearing witness to them, and their thoughts between themselves accusing, or also defending one another” (Rom 2:15).

One need not intend the sinfulness of the sin to be guilty of the sin, as Caram begins to suggest (“…to want to do evil…”). That was precisely the error of Peter Abelard (1079-1142):

In ethics Abelard laid such great stress on the morality of the intention as apparently to do away with the objective distinction between good and evil acts. It is not the physical action itself, he said, nor any imaginary injury to God, that constitutes sin, but rather the psychological element in the action, the intention of sinning, which is formal contempt of God.

(Catholic Encyclopedia, s.v. “Abelard, Peter”)

In short, Abelard’s ethical doctrine “implied that no immoral act, such as killing a man, is wrong if we do not have the express intention of committing sin” (Mgr. Teodoro de la Torre, Popular History of Philosophy [Houston, TX: Lumen Christi Press, 1988], p. 98). It seems that Sr. Caram was going that route when she pointed to sin being oh-so “complex”….

If these people cannot even affirm clearly and decisively that when two men engage in sodomy, it is always a mortal sin, what is left of Catholic morality? Why bother with the Ten Commandments at all? What will they not justify or excuse if even such a manifestly repugnant and instrinsically evil act is not only not denounced in straightforward terms but is even blasphemously celebrated as “God blessing love”?!

Lastly, the infernal nun was asked point-blank if she recommended for the two men in question to engage in sexual relations with each other — to which she responded: “If they love each other… I… [what] do you want me to tell you? They don’t have the vow of chastity that I have!” Here the intended implication is obviously that since they haven’t vowed to be celibate, therefore it is perfectly alright for them to commit sodomy! As if the obligation not to commit sodomy or any other sexual sin only pertained to those who have vowed lifelong chastity!

There is no defense for Sister Lucia, least of all ignorance. That woman knows very well what she’s doing, and she’s enjoying every minute of it. No wonder Bergoglio loves her!

Now, in addition to all this, Sr. Caram also dropped a bombshell of sorts on that televised program when she mentioned that Francis “placed one who is gay” into “one of the most important dicasteries” of the Roman Curia, one that deals with “the whole issue of protection”, presumably of minors. Although she does not name him explicitly, looking at the more recent past, that description would seem to fit only one man: ‘Cardinal’ Victor Manuel Fernandez, also known as ‘Tucho’ Fernandez.

Why Fernandez, though? For one thing, at the time of the broadcast he had just been appointed roughly two-and-a-half months before, and Caram was apparently speaking in the context of what Francis had done recently for aberrosexuals. Secondly, Fernandez is one of only two dicastery heads who were appointed in 2023, the other being ‘Cardinal’ Robert Prevost, who leads the Dicastery for Bishops. That one, too, is very important, but it does not deal with the protection of minors — that falls to Tucho’s dicastery, that for the Doctrine of the Faith — even though that specific task is one Francis has more or less ‘exempted’ Fernandez from needing to worry about personally, as he told him in his July 1, 2023 letter:

Given that for disciplinary matters – especially related to the abuse of minors – a specific Section [in the dicastery] has recently been created with very competent professionals, I ask you as prefect to dedicate your personal commitment more directly to the main purpose of the Dicastery which is “keeping the faith”.

Besides, like Caram and the ‘Pope’, Fernandez too is Argentinian, and so it makes sense that she would know him better than other dicastery prefects. Lastly, given Fernandez’ public track record (more on that below), it is not difficult to imagine him being ‘gay’, to use Sister’s terminology.

Tradition in Action asks: “If Fernandez is a known homosexual, why would Francis elevate him to the Cardinalate and invite him to be Prefect of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, if not to promote this vice against nature?”

And indeed, during his first year in office, Fernandez has not failed to deliver, although occasionally he’s been forced to do some damage control. From declaring that adultery can sometimes just be a venial sin, to allowing ‘transgender’ people to be godparents and marriage witnesses, to authorizing the blessing of sodomite couples and declaring human dignity to be ‘infinite’, Fernandez has been busy in his new job of doctrinal undertaker. At the same time, his attempt to throw a decoy into the mix to placate critics and create more confusion, does not seem to have had the desired effect.

Earlier this year, it was revealed that Fernandez had published a book containing blasphemous pornography in 1998 — in addition to the already-known book Heal Me With Your Mouth: The Art of Kissing, released in 1995.

Enough said. Bergoglio and his henchmen are from the deepest pits of hell.
