Viva homosexuality!
Gay. Faggot. Happy. Hooray!
Pedro Reyes thanks the Virgin.

My sons went to the movie to watch a movie with monsters and mummy without asking my permission. After the movie they were so scared, that when they were going through a dark alley they imagined that there was a mummy growling at them. But my Samuel took out his medallion of the Virgin of San Juan, and the mummy got scared. So the kids ran away, and this monster didn’t follow them. I thank the Virgin for protecting my sons.

We offer this retablo to the Virgin of San Juan for the miracle that we arrived to USA after we had met the immigration police but managed to escape.

Because of our lack of money, we couldn’t build a stable. And every time when it rained, my wife brought the cow in the house so that it wouldn’t get wet. I hated to see cow’s muzzle waking up. I prayed to the Virgin of Guadalupe for money for the stable, so now the animal sleeps over there.

Virgin of Guadalupe, I promise not to drink pulque nor mescal, or the death would take me. O, Mother Holy Virgin, help me not to get drunk again.

I thanks Saint Mary of the Head because, although I was born as a man, she gave me necessary strength to decide to inject hormones and to wear woman clothes, pretty much against my family wishes and especially my brothers’ will.

Margarita Segura was a very depressive girl. So when she saw that her fiancé didn’t arrive on the day of the wedding, she ran and threw herself to the lake, from which she was saved by a fisherman, thanks to the Virgin of the Rosary. Afterwards, she found out that her fiancé didn’t mean to leave her, but had some serious troubles and couldn’t arrive in time. She thanks the Virgin for being saved for her own happiness.
