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.

The bus driver Ignacio Becerra and his colleague saw a bright beam of light on their way to Tula. They thought it was another bus and sounded the horn. But then the light went up and they realized it was an UFO. The UFO quickly disappeared. They thank the Virgin of Guadalupe for that.

Holy Child of Atocha, thank you for having heard my prayers. I organized a bus trip to Zitucuaro, Michoacan, because I had a bus. It’s an old model but in good conditions. We almost arrived there when suddenly we were stopped by three armored men. They called themselves agents and began to check the passengers—as they were saying— for drugs and weapons. I was worried for kids. There were 10 of them in the bus. I think they were “sicarios” hitmen, because they were asking me what gang I’m in. I prayed them to let us go and finally they did.

My colleague from the route and I were racing against each other. We were driving so fast we almost hit the people crossing the street. I thank Saint Christopher for we managed to brake in time avoiding an accident. I promise to be a more careful driver and not to do stupid things.

In order to get to my job I always had to run behind the minibus. And the worst part was to endure the mistreatment from the drivers. Besides, the minibus was always overcrowded. I bring this retablo to Saint Jude Thaddeus thanking him for the miracle that I could buy a little used car. So now I feel better and stopped suffering in the public transport.

Being under the effects of a bad combination of spliff, beer, vodka and absinthe, I forgot that cars circulate on the wrong side of the road in this country. The Holy Angels sent a police officer on time before a 73 ran me over. I didn’t lose my life, just £100 fine. Thank you, Angels.

Camilo Gonzales worked as a bus driver, and he got a route in Altas de Jalisco. One morning he was driving being drunk and exhausted. He feel asleep behind the wheel, and the bus fell over a cliff, in a lake. The driver thanks the Virgin of Zapopan because no one of his passengers drowned and because he wasn’t thrown in jail for this accident.

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.
