I thank the Holy Virgin because I was a very weak lad and everybody bullied and beat me. Until one day I found a gym, where one year later, after so much effort, I became a real muscleman. Also, in the gym, I can admire other guys who are shaped as well as I am and make friends with them.

A nagual kidnapped my little son right from the cradle. But thanks to the Virgin of Guadalupe the nagual didn’t carry him further than the cornfield. I came running and saw my baby who was sitting and playing with leaves. Also I saw the shadow of the nagual running away.

Abundio Ramos was coming back to his ranch, when the death on her gaunt steed started chasing him. He encrusted himself to the Virgin of Zapopan, and she worked the miracle so the Abundio’s horse ran faster that the bony one, and Abundio was able to escape.

I dedicate this retablo to Saint Pancras for the miracle that my mother-in-law finally moved out. Since I married her daughter she lived with us. She didn’t leave us alone and always meddled with us. I thank because my wife understood that the married couple needs their own place. Now my mother-in-law comes only for short visits.
