Lady in Blue

Mountainair, NM ---- A town we visited a while ago with lots and lots of mosaic work on public buildings... and this one is "The Lady in Blue." There is a backstory to this figure who from 1620 to 1631 made more than 400 apparitions to the native people of Western Texas and Southern New Mexico. The locals were fascinated with her great compassion, love, and understanding. This assisted the Franciscans who were in New Mexico to convert the Native Americans to Catholicism.
