Saint Raymond Nonnatus

San Ramón Nonato

My neighbors were gossiping that my friend flirted with my husband. One day when I met her near the laundry sinks on the roof I grabbed her hair. Thanks to Saint Raymond, those rumors turned out to be pure lies. I made up with my friend, and the gossiping neighbors won’t upset us ever again.

Since we needed money so badly, I decided—after noticing that the prostitutes from the Rosales street earned quite a good money—to try this thing. I put on a blouse in which I looked very beautiful, took my sister’s skirt, borrowed high heels shoes and went to the Rosales street. First, a horrible drunk old man hit on me. He wanted me to go with him but I ran from him. Then came the police and tried to put us in jail, but I managed to escape. I thank Saint Raymond, and I suppose it’s better to work in a bakery.

After I’d broken up with my girlfriend I had no luck. Every time I go out strange things happened to me. I even lost my job without any reason. Then I was told that it was my ex-girlfriend who put an evil eye on me. I was so devastated, I prayed Saint Raymond Nonnatus. Thanks to his divine intervention my life has changed and I’ve got my job back. I dedicate this retablo.
