I’m grateful to Saint Sava because I managed to catch a wild boar while underwater hunting. It was chased by hunters and jumped to the sea from the cliff. Now my wife, who doesn’t like peeling fish, let me go hunting, with a pure heart, hoping I’d bring home another boar.

Gregorio Osorio was going to hunt. When he went out, he saw an UFO. It approached to him by couple hundreds meters. Suddenly he felt numb and got paralyzed. The bright light flared, and a greeny being came out of it. It was about 120 cm (4 feet) high. It said that if people wouldn’t stop doing evil things they would destroy themselves. Also it said that the polar snows would melt soon. After that it went up in his ship, and Gregorio was able to move again. He thanks Saint Jude Thaddeus and offers this retablo.

When I was on safari in Africa, I felt like peeing. I went to a tree. So I was peeing, and suddenly a viper appeared. It wanted to bite my manhood. I implored the Virgin of Guadalupe. She heard my prayers and shooed the viper away.

A very beautiful deer lived not far away from our house. Sometimes he came closer to me and I gave it some food. One day I heard that some hunters arrived and they wanted the deer as a trophy. I thank the Virgin of Guadalupe for I was able to arrive to the deer before the hunters. I scared it away, so it ran far enough and the hunters didn’t find him.
