I bring the present retablo to Saint Jude Thaddeus for the miracle that I managed to buy a little car for myself, although I have to pay by installments. But it was a real martyrdom to run after the minibuses every day. And the worst part was that they were always crowded and I had to put up with smelly armpits and body sweats as well as elbowing and stomping.

Joaquin Martinez lost his job. He had no money to feed his family. He was so desperate he went to rob the people on a bus treating them with a pistol. He got into the bus and fired a shot. A girl fell down. Joaquin got frightened and prayed to the Holy Heart of Mary because he didn’t want to end up as a murderer. The girl wasn’t wounded but fainted of fear. Joaquin apologized to the passengers and left the bus.

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.

Ricardo Lezama was afraid of clowns. One day he met few of them in a bus. He panicked and fainted. However, Ricardo thanks Saint James for what happened because it helped him to begin to overcome his fear.

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.
