In times of the Revolution, there was a very tough battle in my village, and I became an orphan. One day I met the general Emiliano Zapata himself and humbly asked him for help. I thank the Virgin of San Juan for having sent him to me, because he took me with him and gave me many advices that made me into a hardworking, loyal and brave man.

St. Jude Thaddeus, thank you for sending me happiness. One day I was walking to Cuernavaca and I wanted some cold beer. I went to a bar, and there I met Ernesto. This young man dragged my attention right away. Also I liked his mole. In short we started talking, and now we’re a couple. I won a lottery with this guy. We are madly in love.

I thank Saint Charbel with this humble retablo because I managed to save enough money to pay for my breast augmentation surgery. I had small bust and had to stuff my bra every day. Once at a party a filling fell off in front of the people, and I was dying of embarrassment. Now this won’t happen again.

Saint Jude Thaddeus, thank you for all your favors. It seemed I was loosing my mind when I got in the river completely naked. One and half year before, my boyfriend Pepe had drowned at the very same place. A lady saw me there and reported to the police. They came looking for me, and then I spent three days at a police station until my mother and my sister came after me. They payed the fine, and then I was taken from there with the psychologist. Few months later, I was doing better mentally, since I had been at the edge of going crazy.

Humberto Rodriguez, 23 years old, went camping with four his friends in vicinity of Cocoyoc, Morelos. 11 p.m., he moved away fro the group and immediately was taken up in the air by a bright light ray. He was brought right inside an UFO. 30 minutes later, he returned to his friends. They were scared and looking for him. Humberto told he remembered nothing besides that he had been praying to the Virgin of the Holy Heart. He brings this retablo as testimony.

Saint Jude Thaddeus, thank you for your favors. My cousin Pedro from north came to visit me. The next day, we went for a walk around those places we used to wander around when we were children. I decided to climb a rock but fell in a hollow and fractured my leg. My cousin took me home. I thank Saint Jude for helping me to heal my injuries.

During their visit to Tepoztlán, Ricardo Arriaga and his family noticed two UFOs not far away from the archeological site. The UFOs were hanging in the air for more than 30 minutes before people started praying to the Virgin of the Light. This retablo is a testimony of what happened.

Holy Child of Atocha, I thank you for all your favors. It happened so I went to gather some food for a sick cow a day before I had to give birth. I gathered a very heavy basket, that’s why my contractions began while I was doing my laundry. Thanks goodness, my friend Ramona was near and she helped me. I was very sick, but the worst part was that a baby died. I thank the Holy Child for consoling me.
