I’m infinitely grateful to the Holy Virgin of Guadalupe for helping me every day with so many clients who buy my tamales. I didn’t have a job and by a chance found my mother’s recipe of tamales with mole, pickled peppers and sweet green sauce. And the people of the town like the taste of it.

My patrons asked me to cook some mole and two turkeys. I was feeling bad to kill birds. I thank Saint Paschal because I convinced my patrons to have another dish and they even gave me those two turkeys as a gift. I took them back to my hut, and I’m very glad.

With this humble retablo, my wife Remedios and I want to thank Saint Isidor the Labourer for the good harvest of marigold flowers this year, so we’ll have good sales at the cemeteries on the next Day of the Dead.

The firefighter squad from Atlixco thanks the Virgin of San Juan with fervent devotion for they have tried out their new firefighters truck. It’s very modern and helps them a lot at their job.

I’m infinitely grateful to the Virgin of Guadalupe for protecting me every time I’m going out of my village to sell birds. In this way I support my family. I dedicate this retablo for that.

Thank you, Saint Isidor the Laborer, for having heard my prayers, so my first harvest of marigold flowers was very good. Now I’m going to sell them at the cemeteries on the Day of the Dead.

Indalesio Huitzil went to tend his sheep and saw a group of UFOs that were flying to the volcano Popocatépetl’s crater. He was stunned and prayed to the Lord of the Wonders. He brings this as a testimony to what happened.
