Virgin of the Rosary

Virgen del Rosario

Miguel Tapia was passing the paramos and rode into a blue-tongued demon who began to chase him. Miguel thanks the Virgin of the Rosary because his horse ran faster that the wind and the Virgin protected him from the devil’s spell.

The night of the Day of the Dead, a pair of skeletons asked me to give them a ride under the moonlight. Since I was half-drunk and needed money, I agreed. I thank the Virgin of the Rosary for they didn’t take me to their graves at the dawn.

I live alone, with my cat and dog. Sometimes we are bored because nothing happens in our town. But the Virgin of the Rosary made us the miracle. She gives us wings at night, and we go to fly over the fields, and the immensity around is ours. Thanks to that we manage to remain optimists and keep great wish to work. We thank the Holy Virgin.

I thank the Virgin of the Rosary because fairies come to my garden. I give them milk which they love so much they stay in my garden for hours and I can admire them in all their splendor.

The day of my wedding, Manuel Martinez returned to the town. He was the love of my life, and I thought he’d never come back. I thank the Holy Virgin of the Rosary for I didn’t commit an error of marrying a man I didn’t love and only because I wouldn’t like to stay an old maid.

My daughters, instead of sleeping, secretly went to look on the newborn calf. When they came to the corral they saw the ghost of the Weeping Woman who started to chase them. They ran to the house and got sick with fear. For the next two days they were sharing and having nightmares. I prayed the Virgin of the Rosary, and she worked a miracle. Their fear has gone, and the girls sleep well now.

The devils and the angels were fighting in my head every time I had to make a decision. They were making such noise and racket that I was afraid to go insane. I asked the Virgin of the Rosary for her intervention, and she came to establish order. She sent the devils back to the hell and the angels to do something useful at the heaven. They left my head, so I could decide on my own. Thanks.

My horses were stolen by some robbers, and I was very upset because among the stolen were two my beloved horses whom I loved as much as my own sons. I prayed the Virgin of the Rosary so that she would help me to find them. And on the sunset my two horses came back. I ran to greet them overwhelmed with joy that they were so smart and could escape and return back.

A monster began to appear in the Laurita Rios’ closet. She was very frightened and prayed the Virgin of the Rosary so that the monster wouldn’t come back. Thanks to the Holy Virgin the girl’s father got a better job in Guadalajara so they moved there. Laurita thanks the Virgin because there are no monsters in the capital.

I heard some strange noise and went out to see if any animal came to eat my chicken. However it was a nagual whom I met. He grabbed me and dragged to the corn fields. My husband slept like a stone and didn’t hear me screaming. Then I invoked to the Virgin of the Rosary. The nagual got distracted with eating some crickets, and that moment I could escape. I ran and barred the door. I thank the Holy Virgin for saving me from the nagual’s claws.

My life was tedious and my job was boring. But one day I was given a book. I liked it so much, I began to read more. Now I have wonderful dreams about fantasies and adventures. I thank the Virgin of the Rosary for discovering the wonderful world of books.

I thank my dear Virgin of the Rosary. When I got out of the prison I went to Yucatan where I met a very nice man who offered me a drink. Now I have a place to live.

My husband used to have dreams about voluptuous and seductive women. He hugged the air, kissed and spoke in the dream and always had this stupid smile on his face. It drove me nuts. The horrible part was that after that he woke up in a very good mood. Then the Holy Virgin gave me an idea to take my photo in the bed. I looked very seriously in that photo, so he would know that I was watching him. It helped. My husband doesn’t hug or kiss in his sleep anymore, just grunts and murmurs something.
