Flavia Paz Velázquez

Flavia Paz Velázquez, biographer of Pedro Poveda, 1986.

"We are not before a man who is dazzling, but before a ‘compelling spirit,’ exquisitely polite, while being natural and plain. An unhurried man, capable of taking an interest in everything that is ours and give each thing its relevance.

We discover in him a communicative person that immediately puts us in touch with his idea, his deepest concerns, whether these are the situation of a group of marginalized people or the national problem of education and faith formation. A man capable of ‘suggesting,’ of making us his accomplices without forcing us. A ‘tolerant’ and respectful person, a ‘cooperating’ spirit.”
