We thank the Virgin of San Juan for giving us the opportunity to see the wonderful sight of a spaceship full of light very close over our heads. We didn’t feel fear at all. We were deeply amazed, and ever since we’re feeling more united, healthier and happier.

The night of May 30, 1949, some guys robbed don Carmelo Medina’s shop taking advantage of his wife being alone. The robbers took all the money they’d earned last month and also grabbed some bottles with expensive liquor. Thanks to the Holy Virgin, the gendarme Natividad was having a meal in the tavern of Lupita who has big eyes and very delicious tacos. He caught the bad guys because they didn’t notice him standing in the shadows. Don Carmelo thanks the Virgin of San Juan.

I went to swim into the sea and right away I felt something was holding me. Then I saw a big octopus. It caught me with its tentacles and pulled me down to the bottom. I started to panic, I was thinking I was going to die in the tentacles instead of marrying a handsome young man and living a happy life. I started to pray to the Virgin of San Juan, and thanks to her the octopus got distracted with some fish passing by and I could escape. I swam to the surface and I was safe. Now I only have to wait when a handsome guy comes to my life.

1952, I left my work. When I was walking down an alley in San Antonio neighborhood in Puebla I was attacked by a man who seemed to be crazy. I implored the Virgin of San Juan, and then the wrestler El Santo The Silver mask appeared. He saved me, and I give infinite thanks for that.

The teacher Rosita said that my son Antonio wasn’t good in arithmetics so she would leave him to repeat the grade. I was distressed and prayed the Virgin of San Juan so that my boy wouldn’t repeat the third grade again. The Holy Virgin made a miracle, and Antonio got better in arithmetics and passed to the fourth grade. I thank for that.

Thousand thanks to the Virgin for saving me from the deadly sting.
