Thousands of pilgrims converge on the small Mexican town of Espinazo on March 18 and 19, 2006 seeking the aid of El Nino Fidencio, a faith healer who died more than 65 years ago. Visiting faith healers claim to channel his spirit as well as the spirits of other departed saints with the hope that they can work miracles. Pilgrims pray and bathe in mud pools believed to have healing powers near Fidencio’s childhood home.
