...when I began preaching at Las Humanas an Indian sorcerer became infuriated (when) he saw they were satisfied with my explanations and that the whole town had decided to be Christian. He shouted: `You Spaniards and Christians must be crazy! And you live like fools, and you want to teach us so that we might be crazy too!'... he must have seen some procession in a Christian town during Holy Week, for he said: `You Christians are so crazy that you go together through the streets whipping each other like madmen, spilling blood and that's the way you want it, so that these people would also be fools: And with that, he left town shouting vey angrily, saying he didn't want to be a fool. The things is, everyone was left laughing, and I even more so, ...being persuaded to myself that he was the Devil, who had been put to flight, humiliated by the power of the Divine Word.
