A Jesuit with a doctorate in theology, Fernando taught for many years in the Facultat de Teologia de Catalunya [o: Theology Faculty of Catalonia]. He was very involved in spiritual formation and accompaniment both in Catalonia and in Bolivia, where he lived for long stretches. Despite all his teaching and pastoral activity, he published little; he used to tear up his writings once he had used them for his classes because he considered God and theology to be living realities that could not be captured in any manual. In 1986 he wrote D. Bonhoeffer a los 40 años de su ejecución [D. Bonhoeffer at the 40th Anniversary of His Execution] for the booklet collection of Cristianisme i Justícia (Cuadernos no 14). In 1989 the publisher Sal Terrae released his work, Una larga marcha. Aprendizaje de la vida religiosa [A Long Hike: Learning about Religious Life] (Colección Servidores y Testigos no. 41). Finally, the EIDES collection published his spiritual reflection, La oración. «Con el sentimiento de una presencia» [Prayer: “With the Sense of a Presence”] (EIDES no. 18, 1996). Fernando left us in April 2020.
