Carlota Espinoza paints mural in Our Lady of Guadalupe altar

Carlota went to Father Lara at Our Lady of Guadalupe to ask if she could donate a piece of art to the church. With approval Carlota painted a mural, The Apparition of the Virgin Mary to Juan Diego in Mexico (1977). The mural had been on the altar for 32-33 years until Father Benito Hernandez took over and had the wall blocked because it took away from the central focus of the Holy presence of the altar.
