During his stay in Cuba, he edited the magazine of the Apostolic School for three years (1938-1941). In 1940, he published an interesting historic and liturgical Catechism of the Mass (Havana, 1940), which was directed to serve as a textbook in seminaries and Religion classes. Over thirty years later, already in Spain, he published the essay ‘Concepción Arenal, una auténtica reformadora social’ (A Coruña, 1975).
