Federico Garcia was hit by a bus while riding a bike near by the church. Nothing happened with the bicycle, but Federico broke his leg. The doctor said that he probably would be limping for the rest of his life, because it was a very nasty fracture. But thanks to the Virgin of San Juan Federico got recovered and now walks without problem.

Rogaciano, Panfilo and Silverio Jimenez give infinite thanks to Saint Raymond Nonnatus for reconciling with each other. Because of the rumors spread by the fiancée of one of them, they had had such a violent quarrel they didn’t recognize each other as brothers. But then they discovered that it was a lie of that troublemaker woman.

One beautiful night my boyfriend Pedro and I went to the cemetery so no one could see us, because my parents didn’t allow me to have boyfriend. Suddenly some skeletons appeared. We were so frightened, we ran away. We thank the Virgin of Guadalupe for we didn’t get sick.

Thanks to the Archangel of Justice because “Guadalajara” won The Classic match against “América” with all its damn foreign players. My father-in-law threw me out from his bar because I won the bet against him and now he’s going to shave his head. But I’m cool to celebrate this victory here because I’m a real “Chivas” fan in my heart.

“América” and “Guadalajara” (commonly known as “Chivas” (goats in spanish) because of the goat-mascot) are Mexican professional football clubs. “The Classic” is a football match between them.

My bed became possessed by a devil who arrived every night to sleep in it. And I had to sleep in the living room in a very uncomfortable position because I didn’t know what to do. Until one night my cat saw the devil’s tail and tried to eat it thinking it was a snake. My cat bit it, and the devil jumped out of the bed screaming like hell. After that he never came back. I thank the Virgin of Zapopan for giving my bed back because it has such a soft mattress that I bought in Guadalajara.
