According various news reports, the pilgrims were under the waterfall at the sacred site of Saut d'Eau when a boulder came tumbling down, killing them.

Every year from July 14 to July 16, Haitians gather at the sacred waterfall, Saut d'Eau, near Mirebalais Haiti, to celebrate "fete Vierge Micacle Saut d'Eau", a religious pilgrimage commemorating the appearance of the Virgin Mary of Mount Carmel in that spot.

Every year, Pilgrims go to Seau d'Eau to ask favors from The Virgin Mary, if you are catholic, and from Erzulie Dantor if you are is a Vodouisant.

You are right, I was not replying to you directly.

I was referring to this message.

"Every year from July 14 to July 16, Haitians gather at the sacred waterfall, Saut d'Eau, near Mirebalais Haiti, to celebrate "fete Vierge Micacle Saut d'Eau", a religious pilgrimage commemorating the appearance of the Virgin Mary of Mount Carmel in that spot."

And of course, condolences to their families as well. Hopefully, one day

I do not think that JB replies to me whatsoever because I didn't say anything abut Virgin Mary .Maybe He was adressing to the person who wrote the article .the only thing, I feel sorry for the decease and I did sent my condoleances to their families.

Beside I don't practice vaudou and I agree the ' Lord needs to be celebrated at the same I not here to juge anyone because I'm only human, Let's leave it to the hand of the Man upstairs, This is the way I see
