With this humble retablo, I thank Saint Michael the Archangel for I’ve found a job near my home. Before I used to take subway at peak hours to get to my old job. It was full, and there were men who were feeling me up and groping me. It was so disgusting. May you be blessed.

After I’d broken up with my girlfriend I had no luck. Every time I go out strange things happened to me. I even lost my job without any reason. Then I was told that it was my ex-girlfriend who put an evil eye on me. I was so devastated, I prayed Saint Raymond Nonnatus. Thanks to his divine intervention my life has changed and I’ve got my job back. I dedicate this retablo.

When they closed the school where my wife used to work as a teacher for many years, she got upset. Then she acquired the habit of teaching our pets. I was worried and prayed Saint Francis so he would help her. The saint worked a miracle, and my wife was given a teacher job in another school. And now she doesn’t have this rare habit of teaching animals which annoyed them greatly.

I thank Saint Paschal Baylon for letting me get a job as a cook in the house of good masters. Here I can also raise my son. I dedicate this retablo to my saint patron.
