GODDESS WORSHIPPERS

Audio slideshow: Goddess worshippers [PLEASE ACCESS LINK BELOW FOR SLIDESHOW]

The Sorte mountain, in Venzuela's western state of Yaracuy, is considered a sacred place by the faithful followers of Maria Lionza - a syncretic religion blending African, indigenous, and Catholic beliefs.

Every year, thousands of her worshippers travel there to make offerings to the indigenous goddess and conduct spiritual healing rituals in the forest. While 90% of Venezuelans are nominally Catholic, Maria Lionza is now considered by many academics to be Venezuela's fastest-growing religion.

BBC correspondent Will Grant travelled to the mountain, where he met American academic Wade Glenn and two followers of the goddess.

I know. It was something to see that article along with the slideshow. It actually is scary to see these precious souls not only partake in this but believe in it. I hope that after you show your wife what is relevant to her culture that she will be enlighten. I pray that she too will become an active member to this community. I can only hope my dear. Stay bless dear Colin.
