The teacher Rosita said that my son Antonio wasn’t good in arithmetics so she would leave him to repeat the grade. I was distressed and prayed the Virgin of San Juan so that my boy wouldn’t repeat the third grade again. The Holy Virgin made a miracle, and Antonio got better in arithmetics and passed to the fourth grade. I thank for that.

I dedicate this retablo to the Miraculous Virgin. She helped me to find a puppet to do ventriloquism. I named it Johnny The Little Gringo. With him I have a successful tour through whole South Jalisco.

Elena R. loved when somebody licked her feet. She is immensely grateful to Saint Raymond with this retablo because she met a partner with the same fetish and now they’re very happy together.

My daughter Evarista was very sad because her 15th birthday was coming and we lacked money to celebrate it. I entrusted myself to Saint Jude Thaddeus, and he helped me. The carnitas sales went very well, and I could organize a party with a big feast for the neighborhood. I thank for that.
