Shortly after his death in March 2013, an informal shrine to him popped up by his hilltop grave. Now he's got his own prayer.
Ultimas Noticias reports that at the close of a socialist workshop on Monday attended by President Nicolas Maduro the delegates were led in the "Prayer of the Delegate," which is being referred to as the Chavista "Our Father."
Here's the opening line: "Our Chavez who art in heaven, the earth, the sea and in us, the delegates, hallowed be thy name."
Maduro could use some divine intervention. With plummeting approval ratings and a tanking economy he's announced a shakeup is in the works.
