Every October 15 we venerate in Afro-Cuban culture the Yoruba goddess Oyá, owner of sparks and mother of Eggunes, in syncretism with Santa Teresa de Jesús.
On this day we thank you for all your blessings, and we ask you to continue guarding us along the spiritual path with open paths and good health.
With this beautiful prayer we invoke the great power of the Yoruba warrior Oyá Yansa.
