“I would say that bad thoughts besieged me. That the temptation of the flesh was about to beat me. That prayer had not been a sufficient antidote and I had found myself obliged to get up while the demon was backing away from from my bed. That’s what I would say if one of my brothers had discovered me out of my room at dawn, walking the hallways.” Vicente Robledo has been part of Opus Dei since he was fifteen. Upon coming of age and being faithful to his commitment to the congregation, he makes the difficult decision to leave his family in order to move into one of the Order’s residences. Now, at almost thirty years old, sunk in depression and the victim of a psychiatric treatment controlled by his superiors, Vicente endangers himself by snooping in the Opus Dei archives in search of the motives that will lead him to desert.
Diría que me acosaban los malos pensamientos. Que la tentación de la carne estaba a punto de ganarme la partida. Que la oración no había sido un antídoto suficiente y me había visto obligado a levantarme mientras el demonio se alejaba de mi cama. Eso diría si alguno de mis hermanos me descubriera fuera de mi cuarto en las horas de la madrugada, caminando por los pasillos. Vicente Robledo ha hecho parte del Opus Dei desde sus quince años. Al cumplir la mayoría de edad y siendo fiel a su compromiso con la congregación, tomará la difícil decisión de alejarse de su familia para internarse en una de las residencias de la Orden. Con casi treinta años, sumido en una depresión y víctima de un tratamiento psiquiátrico controlado por sus superiores, Vicente se arriesgará a investigar en los archivos del Opus Dei en busca de los motivos que lo llevarán a desertar.
