It was a very bad idea to send my sons for music lessons. I realized very soon that they had inherited tone deafness from their father. But the worst thing was that they were so enthusiastic and continued to practice for hours and hours. My nerves were shattered and I prayed to the Virgin of Zapopan for a solution. And the Virgin enlightened me with an idea of changing music lessons to football lessons. My sons immediately forgot about instruments and now they kick the ball in a yard all day long.

I thank the Virgin of Guadalupe for the miracle of my father getting better. We played football, and he fell and hit the back of his head. He lied almost like a dead man. I prayed the Virgin so he would survive. I offer this retablo as my gratitude.

During a soccer game, I was standing in the “wall” at a free kick. The ball hit me in the balls so hard, that I was carried away in a stretcher. I thank Saint Raymond Nonnatus for it didn’t affect my virility since my wife’s just told me that she’s pregnant with triplets. I dedicate the retablo for this.

Tenk you, Louse Herrera for saving me from the fight with my parents when yesterday I came home late wearing only my underwear. I entrusted myself to you, and you cursed them so well. So after that they didn’t say anything to me. You were awesome, Louse!

From the bottom of my heart, I want to thank Saint Ochoa. When my fiancé tried to escape from the church after we had paid for the wedding and also leaving me pregnant, He heard my prayers and stopped the bastard right before the exit from the church. I thank for the miracle.

I give thanks to the Handsome Peralta. My family arrived at the bar to stop me from spending my fortnight salary on drink. But it was my fucking money! So I prayed to the Handsome, who came from the heaven and scared the shit out of them. And I continued to drink in peace. Thanks you, Handsome!
