"Nuestra Señora de Guadalupe" a painting by Marie Romero Cash that belongs in the permanent collection of the Sangre de Cristo Arts Center, has been chosen as one of 21 images to go into the 2015 Roman Catholic Missal.

The missal, which is used in masses around the world, and according to Sangre, is mandatory in the United States, contains prescribed prayers, chants and other sacred instructions. Cash's work was chosen by the Conference of Catholic Bishops and approved by the Holy See in Rome. It will be used in the section devoted to the day of the Feast of Our Lady of Guadalupe, set for Dec. 12.

Cash, a New Mexican artist, has created religious art since 1975, including commissions from the Cathedral Basilica of St. Francis of Assisi in Santa Fe to create the 15 Stations of the Cross that was followed by a similar, smaller commission from Albuquerque's The Cathedral Church of St. John.

Cash's work was donated to Sangre by Bishop Arthur Tafoya as part of a group of 63 santos (images of saints or angels) he gave to the museum in 2011. It's part of Sangre's hefty collection of such artwork. "Nuestra Señora de Guadalupe" depicts the Virgin of Guadalupe (who appeared before Juan Diego in 1556, according to the official Catholic account) in vegetable paint on wood with a tin frame. Sangre will put it on display in 2015, with a copy of the missal.
