about

Hey! I’m Richaél Lucero. I hold a master’s degree in theology from Franciscan University of Steubenville. I love being Catholic. After returning to the Faith I have an unquenchable desire to manifest the Lord’s command in Matthew 28:19 to “go and make disciples of all nations.”

I strive to do this as the host and founder of the Clumsy Theosis podcast and ministry. Nothing brings me more joy than speaking at parish events and retreats. I’ve also used my passion for teaching the Faith as a part-time theology instructor at the San Diego Diocesan Institute.

My husband and I are enchanted by the ancient liturgy of the Eastern Catholic churches and have been active members of our Byzantine Catholic Rite parish since 2016.

The Clumsy Theosis podcast. In every episode, I take 2,000 years of Catholic goodness, draw from the great minds and spiritual masters of the Church, and boil it down, to give practical advice to 21st century Christians.

Each topic covered will help you enrich your spiritual life, take ownership of your relationship with the Lord, and strengthen his Church.

Become who you were created to be with Clumsy Theosis—the place to transform the world by being transformed by Christ.
