Father Rentería is the parish priest of Comala. Her certainly doesn't feel badly for what he does. A miserable hypocrite who continually forgives the Páramo family their sins because they can pay, even though it makes him sick to do so; Miguel killed his brother and raped his niece. He exploits the villagers' superstition to maintain his power over them, and is quite cruel and selective in terms of to whom he offers forgiveness.
