My father and I went to work to the United States and worked as carpenters. We give infinite thanks to Saint Martin the Cavalryman for we returned to our country. With all the money we made, we opened our own carpentry shop in our town, and we have a lot of work.

Happened so that in June, in the municipality of Chignahuapan, Puebla, an epidemic broke out among señor Honorio Sanzhez’ animals. Finding himself in such distress he asked Saint Francis of Assisi, with all his heart, to not let the animals die. In few days they were cured. He dedicates this humble retablo for such a great miracle.

I went to work to the capital to earn some money to support my little children. It was hard to stay away from them, and the city life was very difficult. With all my heart, I thank the Virgin of the Solitude with this retablo because I came back to my home town and opened a fruit and vegetable stand. The things are going well, and I can support my family.

With thus humble retablo, I’m infinitely grateful to the Lord of the Wonders who, all these years I’ve been working as a midwife, has been guided my arms with his light to bring healthy babes to this world. May you be blessed.

I was desperate because, since I didn’t know how to cook, all my dishes turned out very bad. I ask Saint Paschal Baylon for help, and now my husband is very happy. He even bought me a lot of pans and pots. My food is very delicious now, and I thank for that.
