First came the man. Then came his famous signature. A little over a month ago came his own typeface. And who can forget the “get a tattoo of the Eternal President’s face and signature for free. Yes, free!“…?

But now, it seems that the love and admiration for this man has reached a new height. Hugo Chávez had it all. Now, he has his very own prayer, recited by the delegates in the ruling party convention today.

Here’s the Spanish version:

Chávez nuestro que estás en el cielo, en la tierra, en el mar y en nosotros, los y las delegadas
Santificado sea tu nombre
Venga a nosotros tu legado para llevarlo a los pueblos de aquí y de allá
Danos hoy tu luz para que nos guíe cada día
No nos dejes caer en la tentación del capitalismo
Mas líbranos de la maldad y de la oligarquía
Porque de nosotros y nosotras es la patria, la paz y la vida
Por los siglos de los siglos, Amén
¡Viva Chávez!

Here’s the English version:

Our Chávez who art in heaven, on Earth, in the sea and inside us, the delegates
Hallowed be thy name
Thy legacy come, so we can carry it to people from here and there
Give us this day your light, to guide us every day
Lead us not into the temptation of capitalism
But deliver us from evil and from oligarchs
Because ours is the homeland, the peace and the life
Forever and ever, Amen
Long live Chavez!

There is so much more to say… so much more. For now, we are simply speechless.

    • For your entertainment: Marcha Peronista/Los Muchachos Peronistas.
      In terms of worship of the dead, the Evita cult is perhaps more comparable to Chavista treatment of the deceased President.

      • Those lunatics control the CNE, what’s so surprising about “losing” against them? After all, they follow Stalin’s teachings very well: “You might vote for whoever you want, but WE ARE the ones counting the votes”

    • Venezuela IS these lunatics, they are an overwhelming majority.

      Doñitas in venezuela dedicated daily pray to Bolivar. It was not uncommon to find a corner clad in religious paraphernalia at each rural house in Tachira. And these aren’t only of catholic origin, since Bolivar and Paez imagery always appear.

      This country is FULL of these deranged fools who live to praise a man.

    • We are still losing because we avoid trying to take the fight to the relevant scenario. Crime is taking away people every day like it’s nothing. They might as well die for a good cause. Because there is still people out there that believe in a good cause, right? right?

      No, of course not. It’s easier just starting at history from the sidewalk

    • Why does the Vatican have to worry about vene-kitsch? It is not new. Just remember Sabado Sensacional or “son cinco pa’las doce el a~no…” (which I must confess as a guilty pleasure).

  1. I”m guessing these people got their cue from North Korea’s Kim dynasty worship. If so, they have a lot to catch up. Wait til you hear people claiming Chavez could control the weather.

  2. And I thought the Chavez’s prayer was a household name. Since it isn’t, let’s tell the short story properly.

    Today’s “blasphemy” has just been another iteration of the original Chavez’s prayer written by an anonymous man in 1992 and sent to El Comandante while in Yare. It goes like this:

    ESPAÑOL
    Chávez nuestro que estás en la cárcel
    Santificado sea tu golpe
    Vengar a nosotros, tu pueblo
    Hágase tu voluntad, la de Venezuela, la de tu ejército
    Danos hoy la confianza ya perdida
    Y no perdones a tus traidores
    Así como tampoco perdonaremos
    A los que te aprehendieron
    Sálvanos de tanta corrupción
    Y líbranos de Carlos Andrés Pérez
    Amén

    ENGLISH
    Our Chávez who art in jail
    Hallowed be thy coup d’état
    Thy vengeance come
    Thy will, Venezuela’s and thine army be done
    Give us today trust, which has been lost
    And forgive not thy betrayers
    As we forgive not those who apprehended thee
    And save us from so much corruption
    But deliver us from Carlos Andrés Pérez
    Amen

    If in disbelief, go check out the book “Chávez Nuestro” (2005) by Cuban reporters Rosa Miriam Elizalde and Luis Báez.

  3. The weird and sad part is that there are many Venezuelans who are moved by these farcical syrupy gestures of adoration and that the regime is deliberately playing to their grotesque superstition to garnish their support . The existence of these primitive cult rituals is evidence of how primitive and intellectually undeveloped we are as a people that they can add to the popularity of the regime that practices them..

    Can any one say with a straight face that these gestures represents the acts of rational, intelligent people with whom one can have an ideologically fruitful dialogue !! BS!!

    .

  4. Que bolas estos carajos jaja… O sea, disociados profesionales disfrazados de rojo, en lo que un dia fue casa de la cultura venezolan rezandole al fiambre comunista. Pero ojo, entiendan que su única religión es el no-trabajo: ellos viven de vestirse de rojo y declamar estupideces como las del video.
    Es bien difícil sentir algo distinto a un profundo asco por esta gente. Le “rezan” porque el fiambre les cumplió su sueño de vivir sin trabajar, de tener casa sin esfuerzo, de venganza social contra lo que si trabajaron y acumularon bienes materiales.
    Estamos mal, pero estamos todos mal! Ese es su consuelo, el resentimiento es su motor.
    Honestamente, yo sé que somos caribes y que el mestizaje posiblemente nos creó propensión a la anarquía…pero lo que está pasando en mi ex país es sencillamente ridículo.
    La recuperación de Venezuela va a ser una labor profiláctica, más que de batalla de ideas (…)

      • Y la raíz de todo este bululú, desde el año del cataplún, es la falta de una política de BUENA educación, que puediera haber acabado, en gran parte, con las cucarachas.

        • Se nota la falta de educación a la que fueron sometidos los venezolanos con el objetivo de que las basuras comunistas se pudieran apoderar de Venezuela sin peos.
          ¿O por qué creen que a los niños en las escuelas NUNCA se les enseñó sobre la historia de Venezuela durante la década de los 60s cuando Cuba mantenía una guerra invasora con decenas de incursiones armadas donde resultaron asesinados cientos de venezolanos?

          • Yo me refiero más bien a una falta — grosso modo — de razonamiento CRÍTICO que pudiera mejor desarrollar un intelecto más agudo, sin ningún tipo de cucarachas, las hembras siendo las más propensas, historicamente hablando.

          • I wish you all could see how ________ evil/pretentious/condescending you sound. Referring to people as “cucarachas” is the first step towards genocide. Thinking that you are somehow better than someone else (first mistake) because you are more formally educated and don’t believe/partake in quasi-religious cultural beliefs. Those cultural artifacts add spice to life (even if I don’t believe in them myself). Finally, there was and continues to be real discrimination and lack of opportunity for swaths of the Venezuelan population and you continue to think that you and your family just worked harder than the poor. Go read a book and talk to people outside of your narrow circle.

  5. Things like this are the irrefutable proof that people might buy a turd if it’s well presented.

    Cosas como esta son la prueba irrefutable de que la gente comprará una mierda si está bien presentada.

  6. Can’t help but laugh at this. There is nothing to do. They are the richest people in the country,the richest,the most powerful,they control what i eat,what i drink,wether i take a bath today,will i find a job? will i make it home in one piece? They control everything we do.

    They are OUR gods.

  7. Of course this is sick and everything else the comments have called it. But is it so much different from Evangelicals in the US starting their worship services with the Pledge of Allegiance to the Flag? Idolatry comes in many versions.
