Every year, thousands of Haitians flock to Ville-Bonheur in Haiti for the July 16 feast of Our Lady of Mount Carmel. According to legend, the Virgin Mary showed herself in the mid-1800s on a tree near the waterfall. Every year since, Haitians make the pilgrimage to the waterfall to be blessed in the sacred water. July 2010 was no exception. Following the devastating magnitude-7.0 earthquake that hit the country in January 2010, the prayers were many.
