It’s time for Spiritual Intervention
CALL THE POWER OF TRUTH!
Say your libation, scream your libation but mean it from your heart! America is divided and becoming more divided by personal favors, greed, racism and hatred. AMERICA IS LOSING ITS BEAUTY! Call on God, the ancestors and the spiritual forces to REALLY MAKE AMERICA GREAT, BEAUTIFUL AND EQUAL FOR ALL PEOPLE!
Call the power to restart America in jobs, housing, true businesses and corporations, family, health care, relationships, uniting mothers and fathers with their children, providing equal opportunities, and installing truth in the political leadership, cutting away their fears so that they can combat the lies that make America less beautiful and not to be swallowed in the sea of lies!
I am Gro Mambo Angela Novanyon Idizol, a High Priestess in Voodoo, and I am calling for a worldwide pour of libation every hour on the hour every day from November 1st until the day of the midterm election on November 6th, pick your Libation Pour Hour and pour alone, with family, friends, associates and strangers. In this unity libation, say it! Pour from whatever is in your hand, including water, soda, iced tea, milkshake, tea, coffee, honey, juice, smoothie, rum, beer, alcohol, any beverage and anything else you can think of. Call God the Father, your ancestors, your Orisha, your Loa/Lwa, your deities, your saints, your guardian angels. Call the power of truth!
I am not a political person. I am neither Democratic nor Republican. I believe in a higher force. However, it seems that the process that guides Democrats and Republicans is not working and, as a result, the people of this land and other affected lands are suffering. All these politicians are speaking truths, untruths, seeing and not seeing and I say it is now time for spiritual intervention.
It is my understanding that many churches, including Christian, Jewish, Muslim, Baptist, Methodist and many others, are in support of the leaders of this country who are causing harm to the people. Why is there so much lying and spinning in the political realm? All these politicians claim to be religious, but many of them put their faith and loyalty more in man and money than they put in their spirituality. Where is the spirituality in that for them or the people that that they are supposed to serve?
I received the guidance to pour libation from the Loa, a power higher than any man. America is losing her beauty by allowing sexual harassment and racism to move to an all-time high, children to be murdered while seeking education and the sweet milk of this country to be denied because of the color of one’s skin. I believe that if we come together with one libation our petition to God, Christ, Loas, Orisha, Holy Spirits, guardian angels and the ancestors will be heard.

Coming Soon: Voodoo in America!
“Voodoo In America” is an art exhibit designed to show the beauty and the healing power of the traditional religion of Haiti, Haitian Voodoo – dispelling the myths and misconceptions that have been created by society and Hollywood. This interactive exhibit is a replica of a Haitian Voodoo Sanctuary, inspired by LePeristyle Haitian Sanctuary, the first 501(c)(3) church of Voodoo known as “the world’s center for Voodoo” established by world-renowned Haitian Voodoo High Priestess, Gro Mambo Angela Noványón Idizol (www.gromambo.com).
Within the exhibition, there will be explanations of the 7 African powers know in the Voodoo Religion as “Holy Loa”. One may refer to the Loa as the Holy Spirit, guardian angels, messengers of God or the saints. There are shrines within the exhibit that explain more about these forces of God and their purpose in healing and helping the people.
The Exhibit will be coming to the National African Religion Congress's 12th Conference in March 2019! More information will be available in the coming days!

On Tuesday, April 5, 2016, at LePeristyle Haitian Sanctuary in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA, there came a need for Papa Ogu, the divine force of faith, strength, and fire above the earth of the Haitian Voodoo religion. Gro Mambo Angélá Noványón Idizol invoked Papa Ogu through an iron pot set ablaze. Papa Ogu manifested by taking the shape of a man within the flame, riding upon a horse rearing on its hind legs in his DIVINE ELEMENT:

LePeristyle Haitian Sanctuary Visits Haiti for Spiritual Botany!
Gro Mambo and her godchildren embarked on a journey to the land of Haiti, where she gave lessons on spiritual botany earlier this year!
During the voyage, her godchildren learned to identify the sacred herbs in the live, dry, and powdered forms; experienced for themselves how and where to obtain them; how difficult it continues to become to gather them; and to appreciate the herbs and the land from which they come.
The leaves, barks, and other healing agents they obtained are becoming more and more scarce, making the opportunity that the godchildren had to experience Haiti and learn about the herbs more valuable than words can express.
While there, Gro Mambo and the godchildren also fulfilled their mission to deliver much needed medical supplies and other staples to fellow Voodooisants, providing aid to those who need it most. The people of Haiti who practice the Voodoo religion are to this day still overlooked by several other aid efforts throughout the land, making everyday life for them even more of a struggle in the wake of the recent natural disasters. LePeristyle continues its effort to make sure that all donations of money, food, medicine, medical supplies, and more go to those who are passed over by other agencies, especially those who practice the traditional religion of Haiti.
DEVASTATION HITS HAITI…
WE NEED YOUR HELP!
The National African Religion Congress is the certifying board of Priests and Priestesses of African-based religions. The National African Religion Congress wants to help. We need aid pledged to the Congress so that we can help make a difference for our sisters and brothers in Haiti. The news media report that 80% of the people of Haiti is Roman Catholic. That statistic, though widely available, is incorrect. That statistic would make people very comfortable contributing to agencies that work through the Catholic Church, causing them to believe that their contributions would reach the people at large. However, the National African Religion Congress knows that the practitioners of indigenous culture, especially Voodoo adherents, will be selectively neglected because of their religion.
Today our sister country Haiti is in trouble - hit by a devastating earthquake! Haiti has played a key role in the spread of African-based religions in the Western hemisphere. The people of Haiti fought for and gained their independence from colonial oppression through their spirituality, becoming the first free Black republic in the world. The Voodoo religion has sustained the people through the worst of times. Now the Haitian people desperately need the help of their brothers and sisters in faith to deal with this disaster. This unified body cares.
The National African Religion Congress/NARC World International is an organization that has been established in order to foster unity among all African Religions of the Diaspora. These religions include the Akan, the Orisa Tradition of Trinidad and Tobago, Ifa, Santeria, Yoruba, Voodoo of Haiti, Candomble and Lucumi. All of these religions have migrated to this country from countries such as: Nigeria, Brazil, Cuba, Haiti, and so on. All of them are represented in major communities in the United States.
The National African Religion Congress/NARC World International has been in existence more than 10 years. We have solved many problems for the practice of African-based religions in the United States and other countries from where our great religions have migrated by bridging the gap of understanding in the communities.
Members of the Congress have valuable skills such as nursing, administering first aid, and experience in search and rescue. They are willing to submit to training from relief organizations to help deliver the support to those who need it. They are used to traveling among indigenous people in various third-world countries and are sensitive to the unique perspective of these people. They need financial help in order to make their skills and services available to reach those people.
Gro Mambo Angélá Noványón Idizol, Chairperson and Founder
Gro Mambo celebrates over 30 years of priesthood and 25 years as a High Priestess!
Gro Mambo Angélá Noványón Idizol, the founder of Le Peristyle Haitian Sanctuary, as well as the National African Religion Congress (NARC World International) went to Haiti in 1977 to study the Voodoo Religion. She went into Haiti with an introductory letter to an established priestess of the native religion. After some difficulties, Mambo Angela was able to establish a relationship with a priestess from whom she began to learn about Haitian Voodoo. She finally formed a relationship with Papa Hilaire Michel Novanyon Idizol, a high priest (Gro Hungan) and founder of Le Peristyle Sanctuary, in Haiti. Following years of study, she was initiated as a priestess (Mambo). Her mission was to bring back to the United States every component of the true African religion as it evolved from former slaves of the Congo, Dahomey, Togo and native Indians of the island of Haiti. During the 10 years of work, Mambo Angélá Noványón continued to study and advance in the religion. In 1984, her name was changed to Gro Mambo Angélá Noványón Idizol, when she achieved the sattus of high priestess.
