Señorita Rosalia Gutierrez had an accident in which she broke her ankle. She couldn’t walk for months. She dedicates this retablo to the Virgin of Juquila wholeheartedly thanking her for she was able to recover in time to participate in the Pineapple Flower dance at the Guelaguetza celebration. May you be blessed.

I, Sasha Sh., work in cash-in-transit. Some time ago, I dropped a money bag on my foot and broke it. Thanks to my Guardian Angel because the foot has healed and I had one month of rest. Now I carry moneybags very gently.

1917, on our way to Puebla, the mare got scared of my wife and kicked her. My wife broke her hip. Since no remedy could help her, I implored the Holy Child of Atocha, and she recovered. I thank for that with this retablo.

When Gregoria Coyotzi was gathering wood, she received a blow in her bottom from her donkey. It broke her coccyx, and she was feeling very bad. She implored the Virgin of San Juan and got recovered. She’s infinitely thankful for that.

The grandfather climbed a tree out of stubbornness but he fell, got a terrible blow and broke his hips. He was very sad he couldn’t walk. We thank Saint James because Frida the painter elevated his spirit when she visited us.

I always enjoyed the speed and strong emotions. But then I got in a terrible crash on my motorcycle. I suffered multiple fractures and spent several weeks in the hospital. I dedicate this retablo to Saint Ignatius of Loyola thanking him for that crash because that way I met a gorgeous nurse who made my recovery very pleasant. Now, when I’m recovered I’ve even invited her to go dancing.

November 2, Day of the Dead, my buddy’s ghost came to the bar and wanted to pass some shots with me. I got scared and wanted to run away, but he pushed me down and broke my hand. I thank the Holy Child of Atocha for I didn’t kick the bucket.

Agustin Aguilar was connecting a radio antenna when a strong blow of the wind made him fell down. He thanks the Virgin of Guadalupe because his fractures have been healed and he can walk again, although he still has pains in the spine.

Carolina Telles enjoyed very much to strip dance. One day she was so emotionally involved in her act, she his her head and broke her neck. She prayed to Saint Raymond and recovered quickly. She thanks for that.

With all my heart, I thank Saint Anthony the Great for working the miracle that my horse El Patro’s back legs have been cured. They were broken and wouldn’t heal. Now he’s feeling very well and runs with great agility at the ranch. My dear friend El Patro.
