Example text

Parecía que nada iba a cambiar. Los mismos gestos y los mismos deseos se transmitían de padre a hijo y de madre a hija. Apenas se oía hablar del progreso, que pasaba de largo, como las nubes. LA MUERTE, LA FE, EL SEXO Los viernes por la mañana, una docena de hombres y mujeres de edad se sentaban frente a nuestra casa, apoyados en la pared de la iglesia. Eran los pobres de solemnidad. Uno de los criados salía y daba a cada uno un pedazo de pan, que ellos besaban respetuosamente, y una moneda de diez céntimos, limosna generosa comparada con el «céntimo por barba» que solían dar los otros ricos del pueblo.

Entre el auditorio había una docena de francesas que vivían en calidad de institutrices con varias familias distinguidas de Zaragoza. Indignadas por las palabras del sacerdote, fueron a quejarse al arzobispo, Soldevilla Romero (asesinado años después por los anarquistas). No podían consentir que se menospreciara a la célebre Virgen francesa. Hacia 1960, en México, referí el milagro de Calanda a un dominico francés. Él sonrió y me dijo: —Amigo mío, me parece que se extralimita usted un poco. La muerte y la fe.

Solían invitarnos al convento de las carmelitas —después, de los dominicos— que estaba a la salida del pueblo y había sido fundado a fines del siglo XIX por un tal Forton, vecino de Calanda, esposo de una aristocrática dama de la familia Cascajares. Era un matrimonio muy devoto que no faltaba a misa ni un solo día. Después, a principios de la Guerra Civil, todos los dominicos de aquel convento fueron fusilados. Calanda tenía dos iglesias y siete curas, más el tío Santos que, después de un accidente —se cayó por un barranco yendo de cacería—, hizo que mi padre lo tomara de administrador.
