A

Despite the fact that, as it appears from Lucatero’s account of him, Anacleto Morones was nothing but a common crook, there can be only a few doubts that he can generally be described as a rather positive character. The reason for this is that, unlike what happened to be the case with the rest of the story’s characters, Morones can be well-referred to as an utterly industrious individual with a strongly defined taste for commerce. The validity of this statement can be illustrated in regards to the Morones’ realization that selling the figurines of ‘saints’ can be turned into a profitable business. According to Lucatero: “He (Morones) used to sell saints. In the fairs. At church doorways. I carried the big bundle for him.” After all, it is a trade (commerce) that actually makes the world a better place – not prayers. What also appears utterly appealing about the character of Morones is that, regardless of how morally despicable his tricks might have been, they did help a great number of religious women to strengthen their faith in God, which in turn provided them with emotional relief. Moreover, Morones used to succeed in enabling women to experience the sensation of not only religious but also sexual satisfaction: “He (Morones) liked them (the consulted women) young and tender…”. In my opinion, this indeed makes the character of Morones nothing short of a saintly figure. Consequently, just about any of his views could be considered rather legitimate.
