I thank the Virgin of Guadalupe for not losing my eye and going blind when I was gathering prickly pears and one fell down in my eye hitting me with thorns.

My husband was a football fan, He used to come home and turn on the TV first thing to wash his games. He didn’t pay me any attention and never had time for the intimacy. I was so desperate I even thought about asking for a divorce. I fervently prayed Saint Barbara, and title by little my husband’s sport fever went down. Now he’s a more loving and, above all, fulfilling husband.

With this humble retablo, I thank Saint Patrick because my husband hasn’t found out about my love affairs with the young and handsome plumber. My husband’s unique interest is watching his soccer games all day long, and there’s no attention for me. So I have to satisfy my woman needs with a real man.

I dedicate this retablo to Saint Barbara thanking for I’m not pregnant. My periods were delayed, so I bought a pregnancy test. I was frightened to see the result since I had no idea who might be the father. The thing is lately I had affairs with my neighbor, my friend from the university and even a professor. But now I’m relieved, since the result turned to be negative.

Martina Ojeda thanks Saint Joseph for the miracle that her husband Eulalio came back home to celebrate the Christmas with her and their children. He worked whole year and they didn’t see him all that time and missed him so much.

I, Ambrosio Fernandez, town hall secretary of the Torreón city, dedicate this retablo to Saint Fermin because our town is proud to be the birthplace of Ricardo Montalban, a great actor from «Fantasy Island», «Hawaii Five-O», «Columbo», «Dynasty», «Star Trek», «The Colbys», «The Love Boat», «Ironside» and many other great TV series.

Avelino Sanchez thanks, form the bottom of his heart, the Virgin of Guadalupe for helping him that night when the town lumber storage was on fire. The flames were dangerous but he went through it unharmed.
