Inscription (translation): On September 9th 1902 Felipe Servin was taken to jail for a great crime and his wife Mrs. Justa Busa and his Mother commended him to the Miraculous Image of the Blessed Mother of Loreto to save him from such a great peril and he remained at complete liberty and for so great a wonder is dedicated this retable.
