This chapter presents a group of longtime colleagues and friends of Eduardo Bonnín talking at length about his profound faith, humility, and sense of humor. During the course of the conversations, these Mallorquín Catholics wept as they shared their profound gratitude, and laughed when they recalled funny moments spent with a man they credit with changing their lives. They remember him as an intellectual, a man who “always had a book with him,” and as someone who “never turned anyone away.” Some of his colleagues and friends say he was “like a priest because he was always praying with people who came to him for help.” They say that “Eduardo,” as they refer to him, a life-long bachelor and ascetically minded, had a deep and abiding passion for helping laity develop their spiritual lives. The slightly built, bespectacled Mallorquín, a cradle Catholic, was always “on the move,” a man who “walked everywhere, and who would think deep thoughts as he walked.”
