I thank the Holy Virgin of the Solitude for the miracle of keeping Eusebio Garcia away from liquor. He wallowed completely in alcohol and made me suffer from beating and bad treatment, and he even took money for laundry, and I had to come for him to the pulqueria-bar.

Jasinto and Pascual Martinez love to go to drink in the abandoned house behind the bridge. But on October 17, 1963, they had a horrible experience there, when a headless bride appeared to them. They got sick out of fear and were cured only by praying to the Virgin of Zapopan. They promised to drink less.

My husband Roman H. S. is a drunkard, womanizer, party goer and gambler. I beg you, Virgin of Guadalupe, deliver him from going to hell.

Pedro Perez got very drunk, fell asleep on a nopal cactus and suffered many cuts. He’s infinitely grateful to the Virgin of San Juan for this lesson and promises to straighten up.

My husband loved to get drunk in a canteen, and he did it very frequently. But one day he met the Huerta brothers’ skeletons there. They had died because of drinking. They invited him to drink for a good life. I thank the Blessed Sacrament because my husband stopped drinking of fright and now only drinks some beer once a while.

Thank you, King David, because, with your prayer, I always got home while being tipsy, avoiding goons and police.

I bit a dieffenbachia’s branch while being drunk, because it bothered me. My mouth and lips got inflamed. I felt very bad and was sick for two weeks. But one month later, my dangerous mole dropped off. I thank my Angel for my recovery.

I wholeheartedly thank Saint Anthony of Padua for delivering my son Valentin from a love pain caused by an evil woman who cheated on him. That’s why he was spending all his time drinking. I was heart-broken. But thanks to the divine intervention, my boy is back to work now. He’s calm and peaceful now, and I bring this retablo for that.

Every time my colleagues and I went to sing serenades I used to pass a couple of tequilas to warm up my voice. But lately I was going out of hand with it to the extent of coming drunk and spoiling the serenades. I thank Saint Cecily because my colleagues gave me another opportunity, and I promised them to become an abstinent mariachi again.

Maleno Romero had diarrhea and strong pains in stomach for several days. To such degree that when he was cross arm drinking with his buddy in the canteen he dropped a poop. Since no remedy would help him, he implored Saint Pancras, and was cured. He fervently thanks him for that.
