It caused me a lot of anger that the slackers of the village came to steal the fruits from my vegetable garden which I took a lot of care of. I prayed the Virgin of San Juan for solution, and then my nephew Juan gave me three very angry-looked dogs. Now I even have fun when the kids come to steal because they run away terrified when I let the dogs out. It’s a very good entertaining.

One night I was woken up by a strange noise in a living room. I went to see what it was and, to my fear, noticed a burglar who got into he house through the window. I hid myself behind the armchair and asked the Lord of the Wonders for his divine help. Suddenly it occurred to me to bark like an angry dog. The burger got scared and ran away without taking anything. I thank for that, with all my faith.

My sons are very naughty boys. One day they got into the Jose Piña’s rancho to steal some fruits. They even brought a ladder. However, they didn’t know that Jose had bought police guard dogs. The dogs chased the boys up the tree and didn’t let them go down. I thank the Virgin of Zapopan because Jose Piña saved them and the dogs didn’t bite them.

In eternal gratitude to the EU inspectors who didn’t investigate the spending of 300 000 € in subsidies that I appropriated because I need them to buy Mercedes 800 LT and a house in Algarve which I registered on the name of my dear daughter Aninha, 4-years old.

Naughty students stole my wedding cake on a dare. We thank Saint Anthony because we got our cake back although it was slightly smashed. It’s a very bad sign to have a wedding party without a cake.

One night, I was awakened by some noise in my living room. I quietly went to check what it was. To my horror, I saw it was a thief in my house. I implored Saint Nicholas of Bari for help, and then I got an idea to bark like an angry dog. It scared the thief and he escaped through the window. I thank for that.

I dedicate the present ex-voto as gratitude to Saint Judas Thaddeus for the miracle that I bought a new oven on wheels to grill sweet potatoes. The old one was stolen from me, and I couldn’t work. Now my sweet potatoes sells are good again. May you be blessed.
