My daughter became a sleepwalker, and I always got up to see if she stayed in bed. One night I saw that she had left the house. I saw her on the edge of the ravine, gathering the stardust, putting it together and then scattering it down over the village to convert it into fulfilled wishes and blessings for all. I thank heavens for allowing me to see this marvel and for making my daughter so special.

Jasinto and Pascual Martinez love to go to drink in the abandoned house behind the bridge. But on October 17, 1963, they had a horrible experience there, when a headless bride appeared to them. They got sick out of fear and were cured only by praying to the Virgin of Zapopan. They promised to drink less.

I saw that a storm was about to start, and I ran to shelter the animals because my husband slept like a log. I got them under the roof but couldn’t ran to the house myself because a heavy rain with hail broke out. So I made myself comfortable among the animals, and I must confess, I have never slept so good as that nigh. I give thanks to Saint Francis because now when I really need to rest I come to sleep with them, as far as possible from my husband snoring.

On the day of the blessing of the animals, I sent my children to the town so the priest would bless our small animals. When they were returning home, a huge eagle thought that our animals looked very delicious. It flew down to catch any of them, but as they already had the blessing they were protected by it, and the Virgin scared the eagle who flew away with an empty stomach.

Barbara Lopez Garcia put her new dress on to go to the town celebration to conquer Antonio Padilla’s heart. But on her way she met don Agapito’s dogs which are always angry like their owner. The dogs pulled her dress and almost tore it apart, but then Antonio came to help her and scared the dogs away. When he saw her so heartbroken, wearing the tore dress, his heart melted and he proposed to her right away. Barbara thanks the Virgin.

I went to the town to sell my fruit when suddenly I was surrounded by many birds. They wanted to peck and eat the fruits. They were so many, I was afraid there would be nothing left for sale. I invoked the Virgin of Zapopan, and she came to help me. I don’t know how she scared the birds, but they immediately flew away with a lot of noise and never came back to attack my fruits which I sold afterwards at a very good price.

I was smoking a lot, and my wife always complained that our house smells of tobacco. I began to get out of my breathe after running or walking up the stairs. One day when I puffing out smoke, horrible monsters, instead of beautiful streams, came out of my mouth. They wanted to catch and devour me. I thank Saint Michael the Archangel because after several days of these visions I stopped smoking. Now I feel much better.

When I feel overwhelmed or sad, I have a perfect remedy. At night I go flying with night birds and bats. trying to reach for the moon. I glide in the wind and merge with the night and its creatures. I’m infinitely thankful to the Holy Spirit for teaching me how to fly and how to leave the problems behind.

I sold a piece of land I didn’t used so much and, with that money, I though of buying cows. When I went to the ranch La Purisima to buy them, I took a shortcut through the cacti. There was a group of bandits who ambushed me. They scared my horse away and asked for the money. But then my dog who’s very clever took the bag with the money and ran away. The bandits went after him, but the dog ran through the most dense cacti. Meanwhile, I escaped and soon found my horse. When I got home my dog was already there with the bag of money. I thank Virgin of Zapopan for this miracle.

A part of the road that Gregorio Canales took got crumbled and he fell down the cliff with his dog and his horse. But thanks to the Virgin of Zapopan’s miraculous intervention no one from the was hurt because they fell on shrubbery and it softened the blow.

We went to the town to baptize our boy. The bus broke down and we had to ride horses. On our way back a viper scared my horse, it reared up, and my baby flew up in the air. But thanks to the Virgin of Zapopan he fell right into the arms of my husband who rode behind me. Nothing happened to the baby, he didn’t even got scared because he thought we were just playing. I give infinite thanks for this miracle.

One day my house was invaded by bats, but thanks to Saint Quiteria I’d went to the movies to see “Dracula” a day before, so they didn’t catch me by surprise. I put a garlic collar on my cat and amend myself with a cross so they wouldn’t suck our blood. We defended ourselves until the saint threw all these infernal beasts out of my house which I asked her for with devotion. I thank for her protection.

We were taking our chickens to the town to sell them, but on our way we were chased by a bull escaped from the corral. Only by the Virgin’s miracle he didn’t gore us, because the chicken ran away and one of them flew right to the bull’s snout, it grabbed him so the bull couldn’t see anything, and we ran to a house where they let us stay until they caught the bull. Then we picked up our chicken and sold them for a good price.
