The don Roque’s dog was furious. One day my daughter came to his yard, and the animal jumped on her. But after it smelled the girl, the dog didn’t do anything to her. And I know this miracle was made by protection of Saint Quiteria.

Ernesto Ortega was caught having sex with the housemaid. With this retablo he thanks Saint Raymond because she wasn’t fired and he was only sent in a boarding school.

My two step-sisters and I thank the Virgin Mary Help [of Christians] because thanks to her compassion we had a splendid idea to dedicate ourselves to the female wrestling. We got lucky and we won all the fights. So now we don’t have to work as prostitutes.

Gregorio Morales went to visit his girlfriend and met the Death who was riding her gaunt steed. Gregorio entrusted himself to the Virgin of Zapopan for not being taken by the Death, because he was so young and hadn’t experienced many things in his life. The Virgin made him invisible for the Death’s eyes. The Death passed by without noticing Gregorio. He thanks for that with this retablo.

I dedicate this retablo, in sign of gratitude, to Saint Paschal Baylon for the miracle that I learned how to cook Mexican food. Because my husband was tired to eat hot dogs and hamburgers every day. Now my beloved Aureliano and I are happy with what I cook.

Maria Rodriguez was washing clothes on the river and saw a cardboard box full of newborn puppies. Some evil man had thrown them into the water. Maria immediately saved the puppies. She thanks the Virgin of San Juan because they are alright and now the puppies are the joy of her house.

I give thanks and dedicate this retablo to the Virgin of Chapi, because, although she was hell of a broad, I resisted the temptation of abusing my sister-in-law Olga, when she fell asleep after my bachelor-party at which we both got drunk.

When my daughter and I were coming back home from the village of San Francisco, we took a wrong way and got lost. It was getting dark, and the night caught us halfway. In the night thousand of fiery eyes were looking at us from the darkness, and we heard horrifying noises. We give thanks to the Virgin of Guadalupe because an old man was passing by. He saw us and guided us to the right way. Afterwards we arrived to our village very quickly and without problems.
