“San Isidrio y el angel”  

San Isidrio, the patron saint of farmers, is naturally important in New Mexico where he symbolizes the sustainable agricultural cycle that existed only a generation ago. In this visual narrative, San Isidrio was so poor, and had so little land, that his turn to use the water came on a day of holy obligation. But as he was dutifully irrigating to feed his family an angel came and said, “Go to mass, Isidiro – I’ll irrigate.”
