I thank the Virgin of San Juan for delivering me from death when my truck’s brakes went out in a turn. I entrusted myself to you in such misfortune, and now I’m very thankful.

A bus that was going to Santo Tomas lost the brakes and went down the hill. But Our Lady of San Juan sent her angels to hold the bus. They drove the bus to the tree that stopped it. The driver Justiniano Medina thanks the Virgin for the miracle.

On the way down my bus’ brakes broke down. I entrusted myself and my passengers to the Virgin of San Juan. Thanks to her at the end of the slope I managed to brake and slacken the speed. I give thanks with this retablo for escaping a terrible accident.

I was driving a bus when the brakes broke down. The bus was going to fall of the cliff, but thanks to the Virgin of San Juan I hit a tree, that kept the bus from falling. I dedicate the retablo for that.

My bus’ brakes broke down, and it went into cowboys and their cows. I thought I was going to crush them all. But thanks to Holy Spirit I only hit one cow, but nothing serious happened even with this cow. I thank because no one got killed through my fault.

On the road going down to the town, I noticed that my bus’ brakes went out. There was a christian with donkeys in front of me, next to a cliff at one side and stones at another. I didn’t know what would be worse, to kill this man with the donkeys or to crash my passengers. I entrusted myself to the Virgin of San Juan, and the man with the donkeys moved aside. I flew near him at high speed. I managed to brake at the end of the slope. I thank for I didn’t have to kill anybody.

1958, I went to Tepeaca to sell my goods at the town square. But the bus’ brakes broke down. I entrusted myself to the Father Jesus, and we arrived without any accident. I give thanks for such a big favor.
