Kenyan Messiah Blesses Flock

As a procession of pilgrims walks by two women of the Legio Maria sect in Kenya, douse participants with holy water. CU on the face of man who shakes as he prays, seemingly possessed. Simeon Ondeto, regarded as Messiah by the cult, uses a plastic bottle to squirt holy water in followers' mouths. They kneel as they accept his wet blessing.
