I caught COVID-19 and had to go to the hospital. I spent several days connected to a ventilator, with small hopes to survive. I’m infinitely grateful to Saint Jude Thaddeus because little by little I recovered my health and survived this terrible illness.

We wholeheartedly ask the Holy Child of Atocha, with this humble retablo, to end this pandemic, because we weren’t able to celebrate the Christmas holidays as we traditionally do because of COVID-19. We beg to be able to celebrate them the next year with all our relatives and friends.

My wife and I caught this terrible COVID-19 and had to be hospitalized. We thank the Lord of the Wonders, with the present exvoto, because after few days in the hospital, we finally recovered and came back home. Let’s survive the virus!

I give infinite thanks to the Virgin of Guadalupe for saving my husband from dying from this horrible coronavirus that he caught while driving in his taxi. Now he’s feeling good, and I thank for that and wholeheartedly ask to always protect him.

It happened so that miserable coronabitch got into my little daughter’s house. Thanks, Virgin, for she didn’t have it very bad and for she has her kitten Jose Jose who keeps her a company and her roomie who looks after her. I send her my blessings and my prayers from far away (although, she’s not a believer) and I hope to hug her as soon as she completely recovered.

Blessed Christ, stop and end this damned coronavirus pandemic that has caused so much damage. Deliver us from the evil here on earth and in the heaven as well. Let us earn our daily bread and live our life without forgetting those who have died. I beg you for those who stay here and for the entire world. A humble neighborhood painter Alfredo Vilchis Roque asks you.

I give my thanks to the Holy Lord of Chalma for giving me another chance after I had caught COVID-19 on the street. When I was in mortal danger I entrusted my health to you, and now I’m here to give thank for your favor.

I thank the Virgin of Guadalupe for looking after me and my family during this COVID-19 sanitary contingency and because those from us who got sick were able to get through, thanks to God and the Holy Virgin. Receive this exvoto painted by Espintla, with all his love.

We are infinitely thankful to Saint Roch, patron of epidemics, because finally the COVID-19 vaccine has been found. We are asking, with all our faith, to use it to end the pandemic and let all the people in the world—whatever their social or economic status—to get it.

Infinite Thanks to Saint Leasa Mann, who offered to pay the bills of strangers who were struggling because they’d lost shifts or work during Covid. She doesn’t know this but because of her help, I was able to stay in my supportive queer sharehouse, instead of having to move back to country Victoria with my parents, & back into a deep dark closet.

Please paint me clubbing with lots of tattoos, because they are the first two things I’m going to do when lockdown is over.

Alka thanks a laureate of the Stalin prize, Saint Luca of Crimea for helping me to overcome my genuine dont-give-a-fuck attitude and get me a Sputnik-5 vaccine in the PhysTech’s clinic on the Cosmonautics Day in the year of 60-years from his decease and of the first human space flight.
