I recently walked by the house Gabriel García Márquez owned and used to stay at in Cartagena, Colombia, and I couldn’t wait to get to the keyboard to tell a personal story about this maestro of good literature and even better journalism.
Although his sainthood is yet to be declared by the Catholic Church, miracles abound in the life of Father Felix Varela, the champion of thousands of Irish immigrants who in the 19th century suffered, fought and, eventually, prevailed in carving out their own space in the American society, just as Latinos are doing today.
