Saint Sebastian

San Sebastián

I was very upset after my partner had cheated on me. Every night after work, I was going to drown my sorrow in a bar. I thank Saint Sebastian with all my heart because—without knowing—I found a real love with Luis, the barman, who was listening and comforting me all the time. That’s how we fell in love.

I’m gay but my family doesn’t know about it because they wouldn’t understand me. I even get a girlfriend so they wouldn’t suspect anything. But she insisted on intimacy. So one night I was going to try it but at the end couldn’t do it. I’m infinitely thankful to Saint Sebastian because she didn’t get angry and we remained good and confident friends. She promised me to not reveal my secret.

I, Maria, give thanks to Saint Sebastian because now I’m feeling better. I was beaten by two men after I refused to go in the hotel with them.

Thank you, Saint Sebastian, for helping us in our relationship. It’s tough because our families are against our love. Amapola Ruiz and Enriqueta Vazquez give thanks.

Saint Sebastian, thank you because my father finally understood and accepted my sexuality. He let me live my life and blessed me.I understand him since I’m his only son, but it’s not my fault that I was born as I am. It’s my fate and I couldn’t do anything.

Sofia met Reyna and, admiring her beauty, couldn’t do anything but think about her. She opened her feelings to Reyna, and Reyna said that she felt the same about Sofia. It was a surprise, so Sofia promised this retablo to Saint Sebastian for giving them an opportunity of meeting each other and living very happily together with no fear of being watched.

I thank Saint Sebastian for the fortune of finding the happiness and the joy of loving and being loved, for making this big dream come true. I feel I’m loved back.

Armando gives thanks to Saint Sebastian because Felipe came back to him and asked forgiveness for doubting his fidelity and thinking he had been cheating on him with another man. Now we thank for being together again.
