Those who have seen the face of God. Dec 17, 2001
San Manuel Bueno is a priest in a small pastoral village in northern Spain among high mountains and blue water lakes. His fame as a Saint has already moved to the Bishop when Angela, a local girl returned from school and her intelligent brother Lazarus who is a progressive educated man returned rich from America decide to discover what makes the priest tick. What follows is one of the most engaging stories of the meaning of faith. What was the reason we were placed here for a brief moment? What good is there in forgiveness? What makes a man love his neighbor? "The truth? The truth, Lazarus, is perhaps something so unbearable, so terrible, something so deadly, that simple people could not live with it!" said the priest. Later he continues"...he who sees God's face, he who sees the eyes of the dream, the eyes with which He looks at us, will die inexorably and forever." Ranks among Unamuno's best.
