1978, during the town day in Huejotzingo, an UFO abducted my wife and my mother-in-law. Me—I hid myself and prayed the Holy Child of Atocha whom I thank now because the UFO didn’t notice me.


1915, in the town of Guejosingo, the soul of my buddy appeared to me. He didn’t stop flirting with me so he chased me. I thank Saint Bruno for protecting me so I didn’t suffer any harm.

Following the family tradition, I participated in the Huejotzingo carnival ever since I was a child. But after a grave accident I couldn’t walk anymore. I prayed, with al my faith, to the Lord of Chalma, and he granted me healing. This year, I’m back again to participate in the celebrating of the carnival. I’m eternally grateful for that.
