Holy Virgin of Guadalupe, we offer this retablo in your honor for delivering us from dying in the desert when we were going for our American dream but were caught and beaten by the immigration police. We ask you to protect our fellowmen who go looking for a better life.

I offer this retablo to the Virgin of Guadalupe because my Pedro returned to me. He had dumped me for a woman, but I asked you very much for the miracle, and now we are together and very happy.

Virgin of Guadalupe, may you be blessed for letting me to be triumphant here in the circus performing my deadly act with the lion after falling down in an attempt. Here I’m giving you thanks.

I thank the Virgin of Guadalupe because Hugo isn’t angry with me anymore because “Chivas” (“Goats”) won 8–0–0 over “Cruz Azul” (“Blue Cross”), and he returned to me, and we’ve just celebrated 6 months together. I gave him a player Kikin t-shirt because it doesn’t matter to me if he’s so irritable, I love him as he is, and I don’t care what people say.

I thank the Virgin of Guadalupe for saving me from death when my lion went mad and tried to attack me. I entrusted myself to you and finished my act.

My father caught me when I was with Sonia. He was so furious he kicked me out of the house. I was all alone and implored the Virgin, and my father forgave me. He accepted me as I am, and I thank for that. I was born that way and cannot change.

Virgin of Guadalupe, I’m offering you this retablo for getting me out from the life of prostitution and abuse. I met a good man who loves me and doesn’t care about my past. He proposed to me and I’m letting know about my happiness.

May you be blessed Virgin of Guadalupe for the miracle that Luis moved to live with me. We love each other, although his family doesn’t accept our relationship. But we aren’t afraid to be who we are.

May you be blessed, Virgin of Guadalupe, for I worked one more year as a clown bringing joy to the kids.
