By Rick DelVecchio

A detail from an icon in the Santiago, Guatemala, Catholic church. The icon is one of many sacred figures blending Catholic and Mayan spirituality. They are maintained by fraternities that bridge the worship of Christ and the saints and Mayan nature dieties. (Photo by Rick DelVecchio, Catholic San Francisco. May 2008.)
