520    In the early 1890's, an armed rebellion fueled by 
       religious fervor erupted over a wide area of northwestern 
       Mexico. At the center of the outburst were a few hundred 
       farmers from the village of Tomochic and a teenage folk 
       saint named Teresa, who was ministering to thousands of 
       people throughout the area. When the villagers proclaimed,
       "We will obey no one but God!," the Mexican government 
       exiled "Santa Teresa" to the United States and trained its
       guns and bayonets on the farmers. A bloody confrontation 
       ensued - God against government - that is still remembered
       in song, literature, films, and civic celebrations. After 
       suffering several humiliating defeats by the faithful, 
       more than a thousand army troops placed Tomochic under 
       siege. Fighting was fierce, and as the military tightened 
       the noose on its prey, an image of Santa Teresa was seen 
       rising to glory into the heavens above the burning 
520 8  In the minds of many, Tomochic has come to symbolize a 
       people's unending search for justice. Santa Teresa, in her
       day internationally known for miraculous healings, is 
       still invoked by Mexican communities to help cure their 
       social ills.
