La Santa Muerte ˆ Mexican Folk Saint Personifying Death
A relatively new and controversial folk saint has emerged in the Americas ˆ La Santa Muerte (Saint Death or Most Holy Death,) a syncretic version of the European grim reaper influenced by Meso-American views on death and folk religion.

They see her as an efficient miracle worker and healer in their lives.
