R. M. was feeling very lonely. She ordered a stripper and slept with him. She thanks Saint Elias with this retablo for she didn’t get any infection and promises to not be so lewd.

We live far from the town, and my little son had no kids in the neighborhood to play with. One day he told me he got a friend. I thought it was an imaginary friend, but then I saw, to my surprise and fear, that it was a big nagual whom he played with. The creature looked friendly but any way I felt scared and prayed to the Virgin asking for help. The help came when the daughter of our close neighbor Don Romo came to live with him with her three children who made friendship with my son. The nagual got scared with so many people and didn’t approach my son again. Next year my son will go to school, and he’ll have many more friends.

My children grew up and went to live far away. My husband is almost never at home. I felt very lonely until I found a stray dog ​​and brought it home to care and to feed. I felt so good to have someone to love. I began to bring homeless dogs and cats, and I’m very happy feeding and petting them and watching how they get fat and shiny, with a little care and love. I thank Saint Paschal for this miracle.

Since my kids moved out I felt very lonely. One day a stray puppy came to my door. I took him, and then I felt so happy. I thank saint Francis for now I have seven dogs. They keep me company and protect the house.

I dedicate this ex-voto to Saint Segismundo “Froy” for giving me the joy of meeting my love in Roma and to end with me being single. I manage better and get rid of my sorrows. I’m happy with my husband and son.

Rosa Maria Telles was very sad because she couldn’t find a partner. She implored Saint Anthony and one day met Erika Montiel. Now they live together and are very happy. She thanks for this favor.

I live alone, with my cat and dog. Sometimes we are bored because nothing happens in our town. But the Virgin of the Rosary made us the miracle. She gives us wings at night, and we go to fly over the fields, and the immensity around is ours. Thanks to that we manage to remain optimists and keep great wish to work. We thank the Holy Virgin.

I enjoyed going outside in the patio to read. One day a little girl came to me and asked me to read for her. Now I have many kids who come to listen me reading, and I love it very much. I thank the Virgin of Zapopan because the children and the books alleviate my loneliness.

I thank the Virgin of the Solitude. I almost lost hope and I thought I’d never love again. But love came back to my devastated heart in the most sweet and passionate way. There will be no more long hours of loneliness that I used to live through. From now on, I’ll have a sweet and wonderful companion with whom I will share the happiness and sorrow—which I hope won’t be a lot—for the rest of my life. Thank you.

I was a very insecure girl being overweight and developed many complexes. It made me feel very lovely, and I got very depressed. I thank Saint Rita for putting aside my prejudices and for inspiring me to take pole dance classes. It helped me to lose weight. Now I’m very happy with my new figure and my new life.
