Anselma Zavaleta went for a few days to the port of Veracruz. She met her most favorite painter by the name of Frida Kahlo over there. They became friends, and she thanks Saint Charbel for that with the present retablo.

Because of a bad fight she had had with her husband, the painter Frida was feeling weighed down. I prayed the Virgin of the Solitude, and the painter got better. She found herself happy playing with her pets, and I thank for that.

1944, my friend, the artist Frida, was in poor health. I prayed to the Holy Child of Atocha, and my friend got better. Now she’s very happy, and I made this retablo thanking for it.
