May you be blessed, Holy Child of Atocha, for sending me Arturo. Since we met each other, I found happiness. Although I’m not a woman, he fell in love with me. And I just adore him because I fell in love with him from the first sight. I promised to offer a retablo if he agrees to be my partner. So some time after he asked me to move in with him. I make this retablo about this nice favor you made me because I’m very happy to be with Arturo.

May you be blessed, Virgin of Guadalupe, for making the miracle for me. Julio came back to me. He had left me for a woman. I prayed so much, and now we’re together again and we’re happy.

Blessed you may be Saint Sebastian for the miracle that Paco returned to me after he had dumped me for a woman. Today we are enjoying our love here in Acapulco.

We met in the wrestling and became a couple. We are very happy but we don’t take our masks off to keep the mystery. We thank the Virgin of Guadalupe for our big love.

I give infinite thanks to Saint Helen because my new neighbors don’t realize that at night I climb a tree to spy on them. Since they’re a couple, I’m getting sexually excited seeing how they show their love and leave the curtains of their room open.

I met Beny in Puerto Vallarta. I was captivated by him very fast. We became friends, and one day during that vacation I confess my love to him. He responded me. I thank the Lord of Oak because I asked for it very much.

I’ve always been a romantic person, and I’ve had many disappointments in love. But now I thank saint Anthony because I met the man of my dreams. He’s also very romantic, and his feelings have been hurt as well. I think now we are going to be happy forever, he and I.

St. Jude Thaddeus, thank you for sending me happiness. One day I was walking to Cuernavaca and I wanted some cold beer. I went to a bar, and there I met Ernesto. This young man dragged my attention right away. Also I liked his mole. In short we started talking, and now we’re a couple. I won a lottery with this guy. We are madly in love.

Saint Sebastian, may you be blessed because Jesus forgave me for not saying him that I’m a transsexual. He is back, even we would never have children.

Gudelia and Rebeca fell deeply in love with each other in the prison. They dedicate this retablo to Saint Patrick because thanks to some cunning tricks they were put to the same cell. Now they enjoy a married life to the fullest.

Blessed Heart, thank you for giving us the opportunity of meeting each other, finding our happiness and living it together such as we are.
