I dedicate this humble retablo to Saint Jude Thaddeus asking him for the eternal rest of hundreds of firefighters died trying to save people on that tragic September 11, 2001. I’m also asking for nothing of this kind would happen ever again.

My kitten Pepe is my only company because I didn’t marry and have no kids. That’s why, the other day when we had a fire in the building, I was very much preoccupied since I was outside and couldn’t get in and save him. I thank Saint Francis of Assisi for a brave firefighter risked his own life to save my kitten who is everything for me. May he be blessed.

I wanted to impress my neighbor whom I was attracted to. I climbed up a tree to bring her kitten down totally forgetting that I have a fear of heights. I thank Saint Pancras for the firefighters arrived to save me because I was so scared I couldn’t move. The cat meanwhile had come down giving me a great embarrassment. I promise to not doing brave anymore to avoid being a ridicule.

The firefighter squad from Atlixco thanks the Virgin of San Juan with fervent devotion for they have tried out their new firefighters truck. It’s very modern and helps them a lot at their job.

The fireman German Linares went up a tree to save a cat but the cat attacked him instead. He almost lost his eye. German thanks Saint Charbel with all his devotion for the recovery.

Avelino Sanchez thanks, form the bottom of his heart, the Virgin of Guadalupe for helping him that night when the town lumber storage was on fire. The flames were dangerous but he went through it unharmed.

There was a fire in our house on May 3. I was on the third floor, and I thank the Virgin of Guadalupe because me and my cats were saved by a fireman. Everyone was saved, and the fire was extinguished promptly.

The fire brigade decided to have a party with strippers on their fire station, and they recorded it. This caused a lot of complaints from the community. The fire brigade thanks Saint Francis for they didn’t lose their job and were only punished with public works.
