A supporter of Venezuela's President Hugo Chavez holds up a collage of images showing Chavez and a central image of the Virgin Mary holding baby Jesus at a rally in Caracas, Venezuela, Wednesday, Jan. 23, 2013. The cult of personality that Chavez long nurtured has been flourishing like never before as he confronts an increasingly difficult struggle against the mysterious cancer that afflicts him. The connections between Chavez and Jesus are surfacing more often, having begun with Chavez himself praying to God on television, and repeatedly kissing a crucifix. (AP Photo/Fernando Llano)
