Virgin of Guadalupe

Virgen de Guadalupe

I thank the Virgin of Guadalupe because I’ve managed to get into the US without being seen by the immigration police. I ask to find a good job to send money to my family.

I’m from North America. When I started studying the Mexican culture, I fell in love with its legends, but my favorite one is the Legend of Volcanoes. I dedicate this retablo to the Holy Virgin of Guadalupe in gratitude for I traveled to the Mexico Valley and saw myself the greatness of Popocatepetl y del Iztaccihuatl.


Rutilio Prado was in the field and ate a peyote and saw many bizarre things that scared me a lot because there were colors and figures that spoke to me, but you delivered me from this bad trip.

I dedicate this retablo in honor of the Queen and Patroness of Mexico in the memory of that sad morning of September 19, 1985, when I was surprised by a strong earthquake while going to take a cup of coffee in “Super Leche”, I was crossing the Central Avenue Lazaro Cardenas when I drop my wallet at the lights. I came back to pick it up, and here it happened, and the Virgin of Guadalupe saved my life in this way. It was 20 years ago, and here I tell about your miracle. May you be blessed.

Señor Dionicio thanks the Virgin of Guadalupe because his agaves gave a lot of pulque. He sold it and got money to support his family. He gives many thanks for this favor, and he asks you, from his heart, to always protect them so they would never lack anything in case he’d be gone.
