Roberto Fernandez became homeless and in order to survive he had to eat pigeons in the park. People looked at him with disgust. He thanks Saint Elias for he managed to get out of this situation.

We thank the Virgin of Guadalupe for meeting each other and for joining our life paths by an unforgettable wedding. Everybody whom we love and who love us were with us that day. And even a flock of doves flew in to celebrate our present and future happiness. That is a good omen.

I married the man whom I love on the sunny day when the air had a smell of happiness. Even the flock of doves flew over us when we came out the church making this day the most special and the most marvelous one. The one I will remember for ever. I thank Saint Anthony for my happiness.

Señor Ernesto Treviño felt very lonely. But one day he noticed that pigeons in the park flying to him. Now every day, when he comes to feed the birds, hundreds of them gather around him. He thanks Saint Francis for that.
