I dedicate the present ex-voto to Saint Patrick thanking him fo the tv-series “Game of Thrones”. Since I began to watch it, I was captivated by the excellent storyline and fascinated by the characters. I can’t wait to see its last season because it has become my favorite show.

I was going out with two guys at the same time because I couldn’t decide whom to choose for a boyfriend. I was thinking they would find out, but last Saturday I went to the movies with one of them and there I saw, to my fear, my second suitor sitting right in front of us. I thank Saint Raymond because he was so entertained with the movie he didn’t see me with another guy and didn’t find out about my cheating.

I dedicate this ex-voto to Saint Benedict thanking him because, although I’ve seen many horror movies, I never have nightmares. I’m a fan of the horror movies and even if I’m really scared I enjoy the tension and adrenalin this genre is causing me.

With this humble retablo, I thank Saint Jude Thaddeus because in Hollywood they created this movie “Coco” in which they show the beautiful and colorful Mexican tradition of the Day of the Dead. And it’s absolutely fair that it won the Oscar for the best animated picture.

I dedicate this humble retablo to Saint Patrick thanking him for the talent and great beauty of Marylin Monroe whom I admire. Since I was young, she’s been always my platonic love. I enjoy watching her movies again and again just to look at who is, to me, the most beautiful woman in the cinema.

I dedicate to Saint Jude Thaddeus the present retablo in honor of the great actress Maria Felix better known as “La Doña”. Her beauty and her boldness in playing the roles of women with strong character made her a legend of Mexican cinema.

When I watched the movie “From dusk till dawn” I completely fell in love with Salma Hayek after seeing her dancing with the snake. She became my platonic love. With this retablo, I thank the Saint James the Apostle because after many year of admiring her I finally could see her in person on a red carpet of one of her films. Few minutes I spent near her was the most marvelous moment of my life.

With the present retablo, I thank Saint Jude Thaddeus because they’re taking into account and recognizing the Mexican talents in the movie industry more then before, like in the case of my fellow compatriot Guillermo del Toro who won the Oscar for the best director of the fabulous movie “The Shape of Water”.

I dedicate this retablo to the Christ of the Cross for my family hasn’t yet found out that I’d been fired from my job in the Bank of Fomento because of a theft of quite a lot of thousands pesos. Now we are passing our time watching the super 8 mm films and remembering much happier times when we didn’t lack anything.

It was very late at night when my sister Lourdes and I were coming back from the movies. We were followed by some skeletons in a red car. They asked us to have a ride. We got scared and ran away, because bot only they were dead men but also dead drunk. We thank the Blessed Sacrament for we escaped from these ghosts.

Saturday night, my friend Luisa and I went to see a horror film. After the movie we went in a dark alley and there we saw with fear the vampiress flying towards us. She was about to attack us, but I grabbed the crucifix that I wore on my neck. The monster got scared and ran away. We ran to my house and locked ourselves inside till the next day. We thank the Virgin of San Juan for the vampiress didn’t suck our blood out.

Raul Arellano enjoyed eating while watching movies. One day he was so excited, and popcorn stuck in his respiratory tract. He started to suffocate. Raul gives thanks to the Lord of the Wonders for he was rescued right away and he didn’t die.
