MANUEL ACOSTA
SAINT OF ANTINOUS


WE honor Manuel Acosta (May 9, 1921-October 25, 1989) as a blessed Saint of Antinous for being a Texican artist from El Paso who lived and died for his art.

Sadly, he is only known in the English-speaking world for having painted the iconic portrait of César Chávez for a 1969 Time magazine cover.

He was brutally murdered by a 20-year-old boy who was living with him, who had been his model...and more.

Flamen Antonius says of Acosta:

He is a very meaningful Saint of Antinous because he opened whole new world of art for me when I was very young.  I always thought of art as something people did far away in Paris or somewhere.  In my neighborhood they painted the Virgin Mary and low-riders and Aztec warriors...but that wasn't art...right there next to the gang graffiti and a crudely drawn penis squirting sperm on some breasts.  Art was something that people in Europe painted on canvases.  Manuel Acosta changed my perspective...because he lived about a quarter mile away.
Right when he was murdered, they released prints of his work, and my mother bought the full set for me,
it was my first real introduction to art...my walls were covered with Manuel Acosta paintings,
I had no idea that it would mean so much to me later.

Manuel Acosta always used to wear a paper-bag hat. Father Arturo Banuelas, who led the prayers at Manuel’s funeral said, "Today his paper hat is a crown of glory."

He was buried with what he called his Mexican-Italian-Pajama shirt, wearing his trademark paper hat, with a can of Budweiser beer in his hand (his nephew placed it there).

Do you know that there is a great herbal doctor who can cure any deadly disease like herpes, hiv/aids, cancer, syphilis, madness, hepatitis b, STD e.t.c. well my main purpose of wACriting this to the whole world is about the great deeds DR ODOMA  did for me. I was diagnosed of a deadly disease called HIV/AIDS since the year 2000, ever since then i have been taking medications on till i met a great herbal doctor. though i never believed in Herb medicine, i saw many testimonies on how he cured so many people and i decided to contact him. so i contacted him through his email, he gave me a form to fill, i filled it and send it back to him and then he told me that he would require some items to prepare a herbal medicine for me. i did'nt know were to find the items, and he told me that the only alternative is to help me get the items and he helped me purchase the items from the items seller. i promised my self to do anything to get cured, so i sent him the money and he prepared a medicine for me and he told me how i will be taking it. he asked me to have faith and believed in him which i did, 7 days latter he asked me to go for a check-up, when i did the check-up i was tested HIV Negative.
