Mercedes Salazar wholeheartedly thanks the Virgin of Guadalupe for the miracle that her husband Alberto came back from the United States to spend Christmas and New Year with her and their two little kids. He was gone for entire year, and they couldn’t see him and missed him very much.


May you be blessed, Holy Virgin of Guadalupe, for helping me to get back to Mexico alive. The migration police beat me till I lost my senses in Arizona desert which I had crossed to earn some dollars.

Saint Sebastian, may you be blessed because Jesus forgave me for not saying him that I’m a transsexual. He is back, even we would never have children.

My horses were stolen by some robbers, and I was very upset because among the stolen were two my beloved horses whom I loved as much as my own sons. I prayed the Virgin of the Rosary so that she would help me to find them. And on the sunset my two horses came back. I ran to greet them overwhelmed with joy that they were so smart and could escape and return back.

Virgin of San Juan, thank you for your favors. I thank because my adorable Nuco has returned to me. He dumped cause of a misunderstanding but one year later he has come back.

My beloved Simon moved out from our village with his parents. He promised me to come back to marry me. All that time I was praying Saint Anthony of Padua for the miracle so Simon would turn back as soon as possible because I was missing him very much. I asked so that Simon won’t forget about me. Some time later he came back fulfilling his promise. We are happy together and love each other very much. I dedicate this retablo for that.

I thank the Virgin of Guadalupe for bringing my husband back from the USA. He used to work as a waiter in a restaurant in one of the twin towers in New York. When I saw this on TV, I prayed the Virgin for divine protection and help, and she heard my prayers.

My sisters Carlota and Clara came back to our home town after having lived abroad. They had acquired some strange habits over there, but the worst part was their pets. I couldn’t understand why did they like them so much. But I felt so embarrassed and ashamed walking the pets out with them. I thank Saint Francis because the people got used to them and do not laugh at us anymore.
