The Pilgrim´s Progress


An allegory of a Christian's life as a pilgrimage towards our heavenly destination. The characters are personified weaknesses and strengths, which make the story quite entertaining and fun, specially to see how they react to the misfortunes and fortunes along the way, and also to each other as they meet.

The book is divided in 2 parts. In the first Christian sets out from the City of Destruction by himself: his wife and kids didn't want to go with him (plain and simple). It's the most interesting part because of the novelty of the road, the suspense of the unexpected hangs over the way. In the second part it's the wife and kids who depart to Mt. Zion, following trailblazer Christian.

The tone is didactic but not lecturely, quite colloquial, I'd say. Sometimes discussions get a little too entangled, too elaborate. Young people and kids might enjoy this read if they hang on to it and read it at a small pace and with meditations. It serves as a mirror into our own souls more than about the way per se.

A classic of Christian literature of its own right, that stands the test of time. Written for entertainment as well as for our learning and warning. Ideal for parents-children discussions and bible studies.




On Cuba's Revolution:

"The revolution was a cover for committing atrocities without the slightest vestige of guilt ... we were young and irresponsible. We were pirates. We formed our own caste ... we belonged to and believed in nothing -no religion, no flag, no morality or principle. It's fortunate we didn't win, because if we had, we would have drowned the continent in barbarism."

Jorge Masetti, In the Pirate's Den

España [por el contrario de Estados Unidos] se ha ido configurando, siglo a siglo, como una sociedad herida por la envidia, en la que todavía hacer demagogia con la pobreza rinde réditos electorales y donde los que han tenido o tienen grandes riquezas -tanto los progres como la iglesia católica– no pocas veces predican la solidaridad con el prójimo a la vez que protegen sus patrimonios nada desdeñables en SICAVs, algo, dicho sea de paso, bastante lógico tal y como está el panorama fiscal.”

César Vidal en su artículo Las razones de una diferencia en

2. La Constitución se fundamenta en la indisoluble unidad de la Nación española, patria común e indivisible de todos los españoles.

3.1. El castellano es la lengua española oficial del Estado. Todos los españoles tienen el deber de conocerla y el derecho a usarla.

I know it full well
My soul, once true to God
Is chosen for hell."
