Virgin of San Juan, I bring you this retablo in gratitude for granting me the miracle of saving my baby, when I fell down the stairs and went urgently to the hospital. We are safe and healthy thanks to the medics.

Saint Sebastian, I thank you because I’m alright now after that tremendous beating a client gave me when he realized that I’m not a woman. He dragged me naked out of the hotel and whacked me. In that mortal danger, I implored you begging to save my life.

On my way back from work, I was kidnapped by some bastards. Finding myself in a deadly danger, I entrusted myself to God asking him not to let something bad happen to me. I was able to untie myself and, with their first slip-up, ran away. I didn’t care that I was naked, because in that way I saved my life.

To the Virgin of San Juan, I make this gratitude because I was able to find my daughter’s piggy that had escaped from the pigsty because she forgot to lock it.

Virgin of Guadalupe, we dedicate you this one for delivering my buddy from dying from a horrible hangover. When I saw how bad he was, I entrusted him to you and asked to alleviate his pain and you did so.

On July 23, in the fight of super stars at the arena of the annual fair of Tulancingo, Hgo, I was surprised by Black Abyss who did a hammer move on me. Finding myself so badly hurt I asked you, Saint Jude Thaddeus, to look after me so nothing bad would happen to me. And today, few days later, I give thanks to you with this because I’m fine.
