y Velazquez
Pbro. de esta venerable congregación
del Oratorio de San Miguel de Allende, Gto.

Luis fue un iris de paz, una nube bienhechora que esparce su
abundancia sobre las tierras mas fertiles, fue un suave
perfume que, durante el verano, exhalo, hasta muy lejos su
olor, y se evaporo, y extinguio a fuerza de comunicarse.

English translation:
To the Memory
of the Servant of God Luis Neri de Alfaro y Velázquez,
priest of this venerable congregation of the Oratory of San Miguel de Allende, Guanajuato and founder of the Sanctuary and the House of Spiritual Exercises of Atotonilco, Guanajuato.
Luis was an iris of peace, a beneficent cloud that spreads his abundance on the most fertile lands, he was a soft perfume that, during the summer, was exhaled, extended so far and then evaporated and was extinguished through the force of communication.
On the 300 years since his birth
