🇺🇸 Lousiana Vøødøø☠️

A woman in south Louisiana sweeps her yard to clear it of debris and bad spirits. A priest blesses a family’s house. Red dust is scattered on the doorstep to keep out evil. A Catholic crosses himself and prays to a God-figure hanging above, surrounded by Angels, or disembodied spirits. Each practitioner has icons and rituals he uses to keep him safe. In both, there is one God but many spiritual intercessors. The Voodoo practitioner uses candles, herbs, stones, and other earthly things to promote healing and invoke protection, and so does the Catholic use many similar earthly items to connect with God.” — LOUISIANA VOODOO, November 4, 2012
