God

Dios

To my Lord and to the Holy Virgin of Guadalupe, I offer this retablo because I got my lands back. I inherited them from my late parents and then the lands were taking from me without any reason as a mortgage. I prayed to you and now I work on my lands again as my parents’ wish. Bless me, Holy Virgin, since I’m all alone.

Forgive me, God, for lacking respect for my father. When I came home on drugs, I tried to beat him, but realized what I was doing and stopped myself. I understood my mistake and I swear to not take drugs anymore. I follow his advice, and he forgot me and helped me to get out of this terrible sin.

I thank God with this ex-voto. My horse Colorin got sick. I had to give her medicine, and she almost died. Then I got an idea to give her medicine with a reed tube. My horse got cured, and I’m very happy. I thank the Virgin of Guadalupe.
