I thank the Virgin of Zapopan because my dog Casilda accepted stray kittens that came to my garden. The dog even licks them and let them climb on her, so I could give them milk and pet these poor abandoned animals.

The girl Ofelia Tellez was attacked by vampires while playing in a cave. She got rabies. Her parents thank the Virgin of Guadalupe for the timely medical intervention.

I thought I didn’t like pets. But one day someone left a basket full of kittens behind my house. They were so helpless, and my heart softened. I couldn’t leave them over there. I fed them and decided to keep the kittens for a while. But I loved them and felt attached to them. Now they keep me company, because I live alone with no family. I thank the Virgin of Guadalupe.

The don Roque’s dog was furious. One day my daughter came to his yard, and the animal jumped on her. But after it smelled the girl, the dog didn’t do anything to her. And I know this miracle was made by protection of Saint Quiteria.

Gregorio Morales went to visit his girlfriend and met the Death who was riding her gaunt steed. Gregorio entrusted himself to the Virgin of Zapopan for not being taken by the Death, because he was so young and hadn’t experienced many things in his life. The Virgin made him invisible for the Death’s eyes. The Death passed by without noticing Gregorio. He thanks for that with this retablo.
