Severino Rodriguez faced a martian who got into his room and defended my woman Gretta with a head-butt.

Mexico — December 9, 1980

June 24, right in the middle of the night, the martians abducted my buddy. I’m infinitely grateful to Saint Pancras for they didn’t take me so now I have a clear road with his wife.

Santa Rita, 1927

A spaceship landed in the village. The martians were taking the poultry from every person because no one could see them because they made themselves invisible. I thank the Holy Spirit for my dog smelled them and began to bark. The martians got scared so much they lost their invisibility, and then I could saw them. I chased them with my broom. They ran to their ship without my animals.

Some martians moved in the house near us. I was scared, but then, after knowing them better, I saw that they are very nice and generous persons. Our families get along very well. I thank the Virgin for such wonderful neighbors.

When I came back home after visiting my mother I saw some martians in my bedroom. They were drunk with lemonade. It seems that the lemons had had alcohol effect on the martians and they were in deep sleep. When I scream out of fear, they woke up and escaped through the window to their spaceship. On their way they picked up all the lemons from the trees. I thank the Virgin of San Juan for the martians didn’t do anything to me.

I was reading a book before going to sleep and suddenly saw a light from another world through the window. Then some martians came inside my house boating in the air. I was scared to death thinking they were to abduct me for their experiments. But thanks to the Virgin of Guadalupe, I must admit, they were very polite. They only sniffed around and ate the fruits that were on the table. Then they left to their ship.

A dog from Mars rode me around his planet. Thanks for he brought me back to Earth.

One night the famous martians arrived. Thanks to the Virgin they were nice persons.

Martians were going to catch us, but we prayed to the Virgin and they couldn’t catch us. We thank for saving us.

One night I camped on the mountain. Then some extraterrestrials appeared. First I was scared, but then I felt calm and peace. Meanwhile, the martians were running across the forest looking for plants. When they were gone, the fear came back to me and I ran out of there to the tavern in the nearest village. I thank the Virgin of San Juan for the extraterrestrials didn’t abduct me.

My son Jose Luis befriended a martian boy, and I was very scared. I thank the Holy Spirit because when other martians took this boy with them on their ship, they didn’t take my son or anybody of our family and they didn’t hurt us.

I was doing laundry and fell asleep. Suddenly I was awoken by my dog barking. I opened my eyes and saw some martians trying to tie me and take me to their ship. I started screaming. The extraterrestrials got scared and ran away. I thank the Virgin of Zapopan for my dog woke me up in time and, I think, even bit those martians.

A friendly martian loved to dance with me. Thanks for he didn’t hurt me.
