I dedicate this retablo to the Virgin of Candelaria because she blessed me with a very beautiful body, although I have very short legs. Thanks to my beauty I was able to become an exotic dancer in a very refined gentleman’s club.

My boyfriend Fernando and I dedicate this retablo to the Virgin of Toluca because we sing beautiful sacred hymns in duo, instead of those sinful songs we used to perform.

I dedicate this retablo to Saint Judith who will hopefully keep giving me the strength to do handstands next to my pooch.

I dedicate this retablo to Saint Paschal Baylon because we won a nice American kitchen in a Guanajuato’s radio program raffle. Now I can cook delicious dishes for my husband—green pozole, pork escalopes, tacos al pastor, chicken balls, marinated arrachera steak, meat with mushrooms, grilled ribs, chilaquiles and pork with beens.

I have a black pug dog named Lucky. He fought with another angry dog and lost his eye. I dedicate this retablo to the Virgin of Guadalupe because I know she, in heaven, would look after my Lucky’s little eye.

I, Pedro Fuentes, and all my crew thank the Virgin Protectress for we managed to disembark safely 30 tons of cocaine coming from Cali at the beach of Mazatlan.

Thanks to the Immaculate Virgin, I finally found a very good and very handsome doctor who prescribed me a very good American medicine without alcohol. It cured this ugly ingrown hair under my right armpit that had turned into a cyst. I’m very happy it’s gone without leaving any mark on my skin.

I thank the Virgin of the Valley because now I can stop worrying about this crafty Carlos—my little daughter Carmen’s boyfriend whom I don’t trust for a moment—putting his hands all over my girl. Now I’m playing maracas at the parties and I don’t loose him for a second while they dance.

My dear Christ of the Sacromonte always helps me when I’m in trouble with my wife’s family.
