Fr. Ramon Andreu's Notes: Part One, Post 13

“It’s the Joyful mysteries”—in the trance, she announced it smiling, as if it was a demonstration for someone that she doubted knew it.

In a certain moment, one of the attendees, an older person, censured one of the priests for smiling when he heard one of the festive expressions that the girls used. As though she’d heard it, Conchita said: “I don’t like the serious people, I prefer those who smile—they are kind—what is kind?”
