San Francisco, California. February 19, Covid-21

Thanks to the Holy Virgin of Juquila for saving me so I wasn’t infected with COVID-19 and STD when I forgot a condom.

I’d like to thank Saint Emerald who has protected me and didn’t let me die during the quarantine because I didn’t listen anyone and kept going out on the street to sell my products—I deal with an artificial butter from India. With my earnings, I went to secret parties. No neighbor reported us, no police came over, so I could always get laid with the most flexible bodies of my neighborhood and didn’t catch an AIDS. I never wore my mask because I was always confident in Saint Emerald. I kissed people during the 210th [Independence celebration] and in the subway. I didn’t wear gloves or condoms, and the empty city seemed given entirely to my solitude and hangover. Also, I’d like to thank for all the protection given me by the saints because I didn’t follow the protocol and secretly crossed sanitary cordons, and I have never—never—got COVID. I didn’t receive any paycheck, but this day Saint Emerald gave me a candy on the street.

Saint Pantaleon, thank you for health at times of pandemic but ask Saint Expeditus for help so that they would give us the vaccine or our hands become like this parchment.

Thank you, Virgin, although I have less clients because of the pandemic, I hope to gather money for the Christmas.

I thank Saint John of God for the talent and compassion of David de Leon and six other plastic artists who painted together a mural “The heroes also cry” in Acapulco as a message of solidarity with the doctors, nurses and all the healthcare personnel during this COVID-19 pandemic.

We, nurses fans of Lucha Libre wrestling, give infinite thanks to the Holy Child of Atocha for patriotism and love to the Mexican people of those wrestlers, like the Son of the Sovereign, who are, along with their relatives, producing masks as their contribution to the fight against COVID-19.

CDMX, 2020

I give infinite thanks to the Virgin of Guadalupe for the creativity and artistic talent of the Mexican people. They can find beauty even in this tragic moment when the country is fighting against COVID-19, and these embroidered masks show it.

We thank the patron of the clowns, Saint Genesius of Rome, for our participation in the Public Transport campaign against COVID-19 “Do not let the clown take you” in which we gave out masks and antibacterial gel at the most busy metro stations exhorting “If you’re going in subway, put a mask on right away”.

The villages of Sierra de las Cruces and Monte Alto, state of Mexico, we thank the Holy Lord of Holy Face from Campana, the Lord of the Exaltation from Xochicuautla, the Virgin of Gaudalupe on the board, Mary of Los Remedies, Naucalpan, Saint James of Temoaya, the Holy Lord of Chalma and Saint Michael the Archangel from Ameyalco for covering us with their mantles and keeping COVID-19 away from us. It was invented by the governments to end with villages and old people.
