Happened so that in June, in the municipality of Chignahuapan, Puebla, an epidemic broke out among señor Honorio Sanzhez’ animals. Finding himself in such distress he asked Saint Francis of Assisi, with all his heart, to not let the animals die. In few days they were cured. He dedicates this humble retablo for such a great miracle.

Sr. Macario gives thanks to the Virgin of Ocotlan for saving his sheep from dying of a strange disease that was killing the animals. It was impossible to find a cure. That’s why he made this retablo thanking for the received favor.

I dedicate this retablo to Saint Francis as a testimony of my eternal gratitude for saving my bulls. There was an epidemic at the farms in our region, and miraculously my cattle was saved. I’ll be always grateful for that.

There was an epidemic in the village that infected the animals. With all my faith, I entrusted myself to the Virgin of Guadalupe so that she would save my animals. They were saved, didn’t got infected and stayed in good health. They are all I have, and I thank you. May you be blessed, Virgin.

Me and my husband have no kids and maybe because of that we love our pigs so much. When there was the plague that killed pigs in our region we couldn’t sleep. We were worried that our pigs were going to die. But thanks to the Virgin of Guadalupe, who protected them, our pigs didn’t get ill. We thank for that.

A rare disease was killing pigs in our parts. Thanks to the fact that we gave to drink holy water to our pigs, they got cured and now they are healthy. We offer this retablo to the Virgin of Zapopan for that miracle.
