I was riding my tricycle, when a baby crossed the road and I hit him. But thanks to the divine intervention of the Holy Virgin of Guadalupe he got off with a scratch.

On my tenth pregnancy, when I brought Luisita to the world, I went mad. One day I left the house and started wandering. I walked at the streets, they called me the Cat Lady, and I lived on the benches in the Alameda park. But one day Ruperto found me, and when I saw my baby I recovered. I thank the Virgin of Guadalupe.

My son Arturo tried to emulate the deeds of his father—Captain Danger. He prepared an act with a cannonball shot to his chest. I was afraid it was going to kill him or break all his ribs. I entrusted him to Saint Rita, and she protected him, and he had a great success with his act. Now he is inundated with offers from the best circuses.

I thank the Holy Virgin of Guadalupe for letting me put offerings to my dead. I saved some money for everything—mole, tequila, sweets, flowers, tamale. I beg for my dear ones so they rest in peace and find eternal light.

I, a street musician, was walking with my doggies Canico and Capi, when suddenly the bony death appeared dancing to the rhythm of my violin. I was so scared, I implored the Holy Cross, and it disappeared.

We dedicate this retablo to the miraculous Holy Cross. We were very happy riding the carousel when my little Robertito fell off the horse and got stuck under the wheel. It was a miracle he didn’t became crippled. We bring this testimony of divine intervention for this.

I went to the mountains to gather wood. I was about to eat my juicy chicken when the Bony Death appeared and asked me for the half of my chicken. With all my heart, I implored the Virgin of Guadalupe. The horrible apparition sat down to eat in silence and then disappeared.

Enormous cockroaches invaded my kitchen. I was afraid that my little son Martin who put everything in his mouth would eat one of those. I tried to kill the cockroaches but they were too many and never end. They were coming and coming. I prayed the Holy Cross for help, and thanks to its divine intervention the cockroaches <…>

I give thanks to the Holy Cross. We were going to San Felipe square when suddenly Filemon, my donkey, got mad from fear and created a real havoc. Then the señor gendarme wanted to arrest him but the donkey was carrying all my goods. But God spoke to his heart, and he let us go.

I was gravely ill with fever and had some horrible hallucinations. The most torturing was the one with the death on spider legs who was stinging all my body. I felt so much pain and fright that I implored the Virgin of Guadalupe…

To avoid hitting a girl with a dog I made a sudden turn and almost crashed into a train. Only by a miracle of the Holy Virgin of Guadalupe my car stopped just in few millimeters from the train. I’m offering this retablo in gratitude on the day 30th of September 1957.
