Saint Jude Thaddeus, patron of the impossible things, I thank him with this ex-voto for enlightening me and making e understand that I won’t have any luck in this life—nor good, nor bad, nor in love, nor in gambling. Thanks to that I could enjoy the risk and the game for its pure pleasure and not for this foolish idea of winning something.

I dedicate this retablo with my image for the miracle of the Miraculous Virgin because thanks to her I won the lottery and went to a doctor who removed a very ugly wart from my face. Also, I’ve bought a toupée for my bald spot and have lost 3 pounds from more than hundred I’m overweight.

I dedicate this humble retablo to Saint Clare for having won the lottery. I bought a ticket and was lucky to win a jackpot. When I was poor no woman wanted even to talk with me cause I was ugly. But now when I’m a millionaire, the most beautiful women going after me. I can go out with everyone I want, and they see me as a handsome guy.

I dedicate this retablo to Saint Paschal Baylon because we won a nice American kitchen in a Guanajuato’s radio program raffle. Now I can cook delicious dishes for my husband—green pozole, pork escalopes, tacos al pastor, chicken balls, marinated arrachera steak, meat with mushrooms, grilled ribs, chilaquiles and pork with beens.

I dedicate this humble retablo to Saint Patrick for having won the lottery. I bought a ticket and won a jackpot. When I was poor no woman wanted even to talk with me cause I was ugly. But now when I’m a millionaire, the most beautiful women looking for me. I can go out with everyone I want, and they see me as a handsome guy.

I thank my Virgin of Toluca because not a long time ago I was unhappy working in a bank with a very small salary. But then I won the lottery, and now I’m having a real blast with my chicks. And I go in the bank every day to take more money.
