Jose Sanchez saw an UFO at 6 a.m. in his hometown Zihuatanejo. The UFO crashed into a mountain on high speed. 9:30 a.m., others similar UFOs were flying around. They were looking for their lost mate from which remained nothing. I thank the Holy Trinity for protecting me from anything bad and bring this retablo.

Saint Jude Thaddeus, thank you for the happiness you gave me. I was looking for a partner so long and then I met Enrique, a boy from the capital. We began to date. I found the real love with him. Before him I had been treated very badly and bullied. My father had even kicked me out of house at midnight with a thunderstorm outside.

We thank you, Virgin of Guadalupe, for giving us the opportunity to celebrate one more year of being together as a couple. We were bullied for being homosexuals, but we didn’t care because we are happy.

With all my faith and devotion, I dedicate this humble retablo to the Holy Virgin of Guadalupe for looking after me every time I throw myself to the Gorge. That’s how I make my living. Since I put myself in her holy hands, nothing bad will happen to me.

O my Holy Virgin, what a terrible experience it was in the sea. My daughter Anita and I were swimming, and suddenly a giant octopus appeared to us. He grabbed us with his tentacles. I felt drowning, but fortunately nothing bad happened. We only got scared that he might take us down with him.

I thank the Virgin of the Assumption because thanks to her I received by correspondence the title of gymnastics instructor. It will allow me to enjoy the best beaches of Acapulco in the company of young men of my age without being molested by the vice squad agents.

May you be blessed, Virgin of Guadalupe, for the miracle that Luis came to live with me. We love each other although his family doesn’t accept our relationship. But it’s not our fault that we are who we are.
