The one whom we consider as the great missionary whose arms would have been worn out because of baptizing, well! He knew also – and very much – moments of passivity. He experienced what we are feeling during times of pandemic. For him, the COVID-19 had as a name « las calmas ». In fact, boats were often held back from moving forward, when, on a calm sea and the wind lacking in the sails, « las calmas » kept the boats off the African coast, at times for 40, 50 or 60 days, with an unbearable heat, with fevers and deaths that would follow. « Las calmas » or « the damn respites » as we could translate them....
