My damned crested rooster was eating my plants. I wanted to scare him off but got frightened myself instead when he almost pecked out my boy’s eyes. In despair, I implored the Virgin of the Solitude for help. Fortunately nothing bad happened. I thank for that and dedicate this.

With great humbleness, I dedicate this ex-voto to Saint Francis of Assisi thanking those who support Linda Blair’s WordHeart Foundation. Blessed are those who help the animals because their love will return to them hundredfold.

In the forest, I ran into the magic pegasus. Thanks.

Whenever my husband has a gout attack, he becomes unbearable. He’s getting bored and asking me to bring him some absurd things to bed, and after a while he doesn’t need them anymore and asks me for other things. So I have to ran back and forth. I thank the Virgin of Zapopan because the herbalist gave me a tea which prevent the attacks. And even if they happen thy don’t last so much. I’m much ore happier when I don’t need to look after my husband for long time.

1917, near de la Rosa ranch in Puebla, two farmhands had a bad idea to send me to the cemetery. I entrusted myself to the Virgin of San Juan and managed to save my life. I infinitely thank for that.

When we began to sow our peace of land, hundred of black birds flew over and started eating the seeds we’d just sowed. We were desperate and didn’t know what to do. We entrusted ourselves to the Virgin of Zapopan and she made the miracle of chasing the birds to other side. She saved our crop.

Mexico — December 9, 1980

When I came to work to the Orozco’ house, I had a lot of troubles with Rosa who was the former cook. She got jealous because my dishes tasted better than hers. So she started to spoil my food. I thank Saint Paschal Baylon for the masters noticed it and scolded her before committing an injustice to me. Finally, I was left in peace.
