With the present retablo, I infinitely thank Saint Peter for helping me to overcome the fear of swimming in the ocean because after watching the film “Jaws” in the movies I got a trauma and wouldn’t go swimming. But I’ve overcome it now. May you be blessed.

The factory near the village dumped the toxic wastes into the river, and the animals and fish were dying. All the village was at risk of dying of hunger. We prayed the saints to make the water clean as before. Then the factory grew and they paid the politicians not to impede toxic water dumping. Now no one can live there, not the animals, not the fish, nothing.

In 2020, I was on vacation in Tulum. When I was swimming underwater near the corals, a monster fish appeared. I instinctively began to kick with my legs, and that moment I prayed the Brow-skin Girl of Tepeyac who calmed me down. And when the fish was about to bite me, it turned around and went away. I testify about what happened in the town of Tulum, Mexico, in the month of July, the year 2020.

I was swimming when an enormous fish began to swallow me. I was so scared I began to pray the Holy Heart for help. Suddenly the monster had a hiccup and I escaped from it.

August 6, 2000, I was diving in Tulum. I was alone and everything was going great. When the evening came and I decided to get out and come back, I felt the presence of sharks. I was getting in the boat when one of them caught my leg. Seeing it, I implored the Holy Heart. I stretched for the harpoon, grabbed it and shot. Although the shark took my leg, I took its life.

Juan Chuk was fishing in his little boat in the area of Ojo Azul and fell asleep for a moment. He was very much surprised feeling the kick in the boat, he thought it was a dream. An enormous octopus, green and monstrous, climbed in the boat and was reaching for him. Horrified, he started praying the Dark-skinned Lady of Tepeyac and saw two little angels who appeared to help him in his fight against the creature. The octopus went away and took the net with the catch of the day. Juan thanks for stying alive and dedicate this retablo.

Quintana Roo, Mexico, 1974

When I crossed the town square it started raining so terribly and so heavy that one couldn’t see around. Suddenly the fish began falling down. I had no idea what to do and where to go. Thanks to the Virgin I saw a light. I went towards it, and it was the bakery door. I waited inside with my baby and my dog until this strange deluge stopped. I thank the Virgin for guiding my way.
