CHAPTER XV - The Written Hymns of Quetzalcoatl

`Then fire rose from the volcano around the old Quetzalcoati, in wings and glittering feathers. And with the wings of fire and the glitter of sparks Quetzalcoatl flew up, up, like a wafting fire, like a glittering bird, up, into the space, and away to the white steps of heaven, that lead to the blue walls, where is the door to the dark. So he entered in and was gone.
`Night fell, and Quetzalcoatl was gone, and men in the world saw only a star travelling back into heaven, departing under the low branches of darkness.
`Then men in Mexico said: Quetzalcoatl has gone. Even his star has departed. We must listen to this Jesus, who speaks in a foreign tongue.
'So they learned a new speech from the priests that came from upon the great waters to the east. And they became Christians.'
Julio, who had become absorbed, ended abruptly, as the tale of the leaflet was ended.
`It is beautiful,' said Kate.
`And it is true!' cried the sceptical Juana.
`It seems to me true,' said Kate.
`Senora!' yelled Concha. `Is it true that heaven is up there, and you come down steps like clouds to the edge of the sky, like the steps from the mole into the lake? Is it true that El Senor comes and stands on the steps and looks down at us like we look down into the lake to see the charales?'
Concha shoved up her fierce swarthy face, and shook her masses of hair, glaring at Kate, waiting for an answer.
`I don't know everything,' laughed Kate. `But it seems to me true.'
'She believes it,'said Concha, turning her face to her mother.
`And is it true,' asked Juana, `that El Senor, El Cristo del Mundo, is a gringo, and that He comes from your country, with His Holy Mother?'
`Not from my country, but from a country near.'
`Listen ! exclaimed Juana, awestruck. `El Senor is agringuito, and His Holy Mother is a gringuita. Yes, one really knows. Look! Look at the feet of the Nina! Pure feet of the Santi,rima! Look!' Kate was barefoot, wearing sandals with a simple strap across the foot. Juana touched one of the Nina's white feet, fascinated. `Feet of the Santisima. And She, the Holy Mary, is a gringuita. She came over the sea, like you, Nina?'
