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.

I thank Saint Paschal Baylon with this retablo for having met my Maria. I love Mexican food, and she is an excellent cook. I used to travel a lot to Mexico for my work, then we met and got married and I stayed here. I’m very happy because she cooks for me, with great love, mole, quesadillas, chalupas, tacos and many other delicious dishes.

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 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.
