Pedro, with few tequilas in his head, stabbed his buddy because of a calumny, as he was told that his buddy was having love affairs with his wife. When he found out the truth, he repented and implored the Virgin of Guadalupe to save his buddy’s from dying promising to offer a retablo. Now I keep my promise because he forgave me and we are friends again. We give thanks.

I thank my Guardian angel for holding me from killing my friends who come visit the artist and keep me from painting.

Edith and I were friends since childhood. But when I presented her my new boyfriend, he told me that she flirted with him. I believe him, because I loved him, and I lashed out against my friend. I thank Saint Charbel because we found out that he played with both of us and we didn’t lose our precious friendship over this jerk.

I, Dmytro Kuzovkin, thank Higher Forces because when I was late for a date suddenly my good buddy came on his car and drove me on his wheels so I didn’t get late! Thanks to this I enjoyed company of a beautiful woman. My gratitude is so great that I asked the retablero to make the symbol of the Higher Forces bigger and brighter.

Thanks, Virgin of Guadalupe, because my husband forgave me after seeing me in the arms of a so to say friend of mine. We hadn’t seen each other many years, and I invited her for a drink. We began to toast, and she took me to dance, warmed up after drinking. My husband imagined the worst thing about me and wanted to divorce me. I begged you not to let this happen, and he forgave me. I’m very grateful and bring you this retablo.

I thank the Virgin of San Juan for giving me courage to run away with my boyfriend. Our friend helped us to go live together far away so our parents can’t punish us.

Saint Raymond, thank you because my buddy didn’t notice me under his bed where I hid myself avoiding a trouble to be seen with his wife when he arrived home. I offer you this retablo for the received favor. I ask you for forgiveness and swear to avoid such situation that insults our friendship, because to insult a friend is to insult for ever <...>

Some martians moved in the house near us. I was scared, but then, after knowing them better, I saw that they are very nice and generous persons. They get along very well with our family. I thank the Virgin of San Juan for such wonderful neighbors.
