Virgin of Sorrows

Virgen de los Dolores

I thank the Virgin of Sorrows, because since I have been appointed the Cardinal of Puebla, the children that I visit in the hospital don’t cry like crazy anymore when they see me coming to give them the blessing.

My little sister and I dedicate this retablo to the Virgin of Sorrows. Although we remained orphans and spent bad days in a shelter in Toluca, we have been adopted by a very rich family from the capital. Here we are eating oranges and cookies with our parents and brother.

Holy Virgin of Sorrows, I give thanks to you for saving me from a certain death when I found myself as a recipient of flying dive of the wrestler Toro Negro (Black Bull). I only had two ribs broken and one arm bruised.
