Thanks for the link. I went to see the video I can see what happened. Lucho asked his sister a metaphysical question, one which was probably very common during the era of modernism in which they lived.
He said, “What purpose is all of this, if God does not exist?” She responds, “But he does exist.”
The translation takes the last part of his question, “God does not exist.”
He is not denying the existence of God. He is expressing a concern for his sister’s happpiness undertaking the life of Carmel, which is very austere. He asks the question that many of us often ask. What if God doesn’t exist?
Actually, that question can lead to great faith. I don’t know much about his life other than what we know of him in relation to his sister. But the question has been raised by people such as St. Augustine, Bl. Mother Teresa and other holy men and women. It is not a question that condemns. It is really a question that calls to God for faith.
Had he blasphemed God when his sister died, then there would be serious concerns about him. But no such thing has ever been said about him.
I know a little about the family, because my brother is married to a woman who is from the same town. My sister-in-law tells wonderful stories about how the people of the town have received many favors from Teresa of the Andes.
