Robert Lentz. St Ysidro the Labourer and His Wife St María Torribia. 1992

______________________________

St Ysidro and St María are old-line RC saints, well-known in Spain and Latin America. Note this well… there are saints who were peasants… there were saints who were princes… but no saints who were stockbrokers, salesmen, and PR flacks. Think on that…
