April 30, 1930, we were performing in Villahermosa, Tabasco. During the lion taming act the tamer received a strong scratch and even his clothes were torn and his skin was cut. The furious animals was about to attack him again and we thought it should kill the tamer. But suddenly the Holy Virgin made a miracle and saved his life.

I give infinite thanks to the Virgin of Guadalupe for letting me arrive to her sanctuary in La Villa. My legs were paining so much, and I was afraid I couldn’t walk. The Virgin sent me the miracle of healing for what I dedicate, with all my faith, this humble retablo.
