Illustrator: Jose Guadalupe Posada
This sheet gives news of an unbeliever who went into a church to leave two candles, one of which was filled with explosives, to be used during a function for the Virgin of Guadalupe. The candles were lit before the service, but one attendant inexplicably felt that he had to extinguish the flames, thus saving everyone. Taking the candles away, it was noticed that one candle was heavier than the other, and the plot was laid bare. This was hailed as miraculous intervention by Mary.
