Saint Rosalia

Santa Rosalía

On December 25, 2021 James Eddy woke up with covid so he petitioned Santa Rosalia, the patroness saint of plagues and San Roque, the patron saint of epidemics and disease, and he was cured. He rendered this retablo to commemorate the divine intervention and his subsequent miraculous recovery which occurred on January 1, 2022. Executed in the City of San Francisco on this 18th day of January in the year of our Lord, 2022.

My daughter Luisa was afraid of the birds, even the canaries. One day after school, she had to bring something to my friend. At the friend’s house the geese attacked my girl. They chased her. Luisa got scared and prayed to Saint Rosalia. The saint protected her from the angry geese—they managed to bite her only once—in her leg. I dedicate this retablo thanking the saint, because the geese might be very dangerous.
