The biggest collection of modern retablos

My favorite movie is “Clockwork Orange” by Stanley Kubrick. First of all because of the great performance of Malcolm McDowell. I thank Saint Marta with this ex-voto for mr. McDowell’s acting talent which serves as an excellent example for the young actors.

I dedicate this ex-voto to Saint Charbel for the tv-series “Game of Thrones”. Since I saw the first episode I remained fascinated with the story and its characters. Although it’s finished, I never forget these emotional moments it took me through.

I wasn’t a good swimmer, and a sea current dragged me to open sea. I felt lost among this immensity of water. I tried to swim, then tried to scream but nobody heard me. I was doubting that I could survive when suddenly out of nowhere a beautiful dog appeared there, in the middle of the sea. He dragged me to the shore. I could explain this only as a miracle of the Virgin of San Juan who always look after me. I give thanks for this angel who saved me.

Since my wife started her diet, she began sleepwalking at nights. She went to the kitchen and brought cookies, cakes and fruits in the bed. When she finished chewing this, she went to take more. In the mornings she thought it was me who brought all the food. She was very angry with me and didn’t believe me when I said it was her who brought everything. I thank the Virgin because my wife finished her diet because it didn’t work and she was even gaining weight instead. She stopped sleepwalking, and now I sleep calmly.

Karina Sandoval got a boyfriend who was obsessed with drinking her blood. She thanks the Virgin of Juquila with this retablo for she managed to get rid of him in time.

On All Saints’ night, I was walking down the street and suddenly saw a ghost carriage approaching me. To my great fear I heard the driver inviting me to take a ride with him. I prayed Saint Michael to save me, and eventually the ghost disappeared. I bring this retablo for such a great miracle.
