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 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.
