Our Lady of the Solitude, I’m going to give you thanks for sending me the cure which I asked you for so much finding myself in such a horrible trouble when I was told they were going to cut off my tit because of a torturing pain. In this grief, I entrusted myself to you and was cured in time avoiding this dangerous surgery. Now I’m healthy again and back to work.

I bring this humble retablo to Saint Patrick for having won the prize of the contest of eating more chiles habanero in less time. I also thank for not getting gastritis. This spicy gig was worth it because with this money I can pay a knee surgery for my mom who cannot walk. And I’d do everything for her.
