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.

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.

Thank you, Virgin of Guadalupe, for saving me during that accident. January 1958, I was crossing a street and was hit by a car. My hip was broken, and I couldn’t walk for a year. I used a wheelchair. I prayed the Virgin of Guadalupe to help me to recover after many surgeries.
