In July 1936, hardly two weeks into the Spanish civil war, the bullet-ridden body of a 61-year-old priest was found by his friends near Madrid. Pedro Poveda, canonised by John Paul II in 2003, was no ordinary priest: a truly gifted educationalist and founder of the hugely popular Teresian Association, he lived a deeply radical Christian life. His inspiring life and the excellent and highly relevant educational principles he developed are all examined here.
