We went fishing, and our boat started leaking. There were a lot of hungry sharks around the boat. We asked the Virgin of the Rosary for protection, and miraculously we arrived to the shore before our boat sank and we were eaten by the sharks. We thank for that.

I was desperate after I had been fired. I didn’t know how I would provide for my family. Then I had an idea to sell tacos by nights. I entrusted myself to Saint Jude Thaddeus, so he would help me. With his divine help I’m doing pretty well and I have many clients. May you be blessed.

Blasa Jimenez thanks Saint Anthony because she met an old rich womanizer. Now she has the best dresses and jewelry in the town.

I dedicate this retablo to you, Virgin of Guadalupe, for the love of my mother, who used to lull me in her rebozo-shawl until I fell asleep. She sang me lullabies while working as a laundress, washing clothes. She loved this rebozo so much that she wore it till her death. When I see a rebozo, it calls up these sweet memories about my mother, doña Carmelita, whom I never forget.
