El primer paso para cambiar el mundo y aliviar el dolor en nuestra sociedad no se encuentra en nuestros ideales, ni tampoco en las conclusiones y acciones que llevamos a cabo para mejorarlo. Todo eso será en vano si previamente no cambiamos lo que realmente importa... practicar la proximidad.


Changing the world is an ambitious goal to die for if we compromise ourselves to actually improve it. However, we shall never forget that the first and crucial step in this journey relies deep within our own soul, in our identification with others.

The restless Dominican Contemplative Nun, human-passionate and ecumenist Sor Lucía Caram has nothing but an inspiring (and modern) life activity. Originally from Argentina, the Catalan of the year 2014, cook and social activist helps over 1.400 families through the Rosa Oriol Foundation, fighting poverty and social injustice step-by-step.
