Born in fire and blessed in water the religion of Vodou is strong . Each year between July 14th and 16th thousands of Haitian practitioners of Vodou make the pilgrimage to the waterfalls called Saut D’eau, known in Kreyol as Sodo. July 16 is the Catholic feast day for the Virgin of Mount Carmel, who is often associated with the Vodou Lwa Erzulie, patron of love.
The website No Comment TV features film of the ceremonies.
The yearly festivities have also caught the attention of the Miami Herald, whose video footage of the sacred bathing can be seen here:
