In 1925, a terrible accident happened when the bus, which young Frida Kahlo was traveling in, crashed into a tram. I was present at the moment. I thank Our Holy Mother of Guadalupe because the young girls survived and became a great painter.

We went to the town to baptize our boy. The bus broke down and we had to ride horses. On our way back a viper scared my horse, it reared up, and my baby flew up in the air. But thanks to the Virgin of Zapopan he fell right into the arms of my husband who rode behind me. Nothing happened to the baby, he didn’t even got scared because he thought we were just playing. I give infinite thanks for this miracle.

My colleague from the route and I were racing against each other. We were going under a red light and almost hit some people crossing the street. I thank Saint Jude Thaddeus for we managed to come to our senses in time and understood that we have to drive carefully to not cause an accident and hurt innocent people with our foolery.

Thank you, Virgin of Guadalupe, for the miracle that I arrived well to the Mexico City, along with the passengers who did confide in me. The bus lost its brakes as we approached Zihuatanejo and it went like it was driven by the devil. In such danger, I entrusted myself to you, promising this exvoto which I bring now.

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.
