Holy Virgin Mary, thanks for this good cow that our uncle Fernando gave us. Thanks to the money from selling her milk we were able to cure my sister Carla. Thank you very much, Holy Virgin Mary.

We had to go to the town to sell milk. But some devils began to bother our donkey, and the poor thing didn’t know what to do. I implore the Virgin of Zapopan who came to help us. She made the donkey shake the annoying devils off and give them a couple of kicks afterwards. The demons ran away from this attack, and we could go sell our milk which miraculously didn’t spill.

I thank the Virgin of the Rosary because fairies come to my garden. I give them milk which they love so much they stay in my garden for hours and I can admire them in all their splendor.

Petra Sanchez had no milk in her tities and couldn’t feed her son. She prayed to Father Jesus Nazarene, and the next morning she woke up with a lot of milk for which she infinitely thanks.

When a three-headed calf was born we felt sorry for it. But it grew up in a heathy and beautiful animal. Although this cow doesn’t give a lot of milk, it made us important people in the village. We are looking best in the eyes for keeping it.

I thank the Virgin of Zapopan because my dog Casilda accepted stray kittens that came to my garden. The dog even licks them and let them climb on her, so I could give them milk and pet these poor abandoned animals.

The milkman Vicente Gomes thanks Saint Pancras with this retablo for the big favor he asked for—to be able to overcome his addiction to a client who always paid him with sex.

My restaurant is always full because I am, in all modesty, a great cook. But when I close my place at night, here come my favorite clients—stray cats from the neighborhood. I give them milk and feed them with the leftovers. I thank Saint Francis because during the day I earn money and get praised for my dishes and during the night I receive gratitude and caress.

We dedicate this retablo to the Virgin because we won a 30 gallon can of our very favorite evaporated milk.

The Melecio Martinez’ donkey got sick. Since they loved it very much and cared about the donkey, and also since there was no other way to carry milk to the town to sell it, they prayed to Saint Francis of Assisi who heard the prayers and made the miracle of curing the donkey. Now the donkey is strong and cheerful again.

My son plays flute so wonderful that all the farm animals dance around him and the birds lay more eggs, and the goats give more milk, and the pigs have more piglets. I thank the Virgin of San Juan for giving my son this magic talent. Thanks to his music our farm prospers.

I lived happy with my cats, but sometimes we had no food because my salary was very small. Also I needed a man. I thank the Virgin of Guadalupe because I met a milkman Jose, who proposed me. He is a very good man. He sheltered us. He loves me, and my cats don’t starve anymore, because they have fresh milk every day.
