In Modern times, Obatala's feast day is on September 24th which is the same day as the Catholic day of the Virgin Mary. Obatala is a loving & caring father not only to his children but, to the other orishas. The orishas seek his advice and give him high respect to the great orisha. Obatala which means father of the cloth is said to cover all men on the earth from harm. Obatala loves that all is white & all of his offerings are made of white, whether it's food or animal sacrifice. Obatala loves white yams, snails, fruits and white cloths of all kinds materials.

Everything that was given to him must be
topped with Efun which was a powdered
egg shell that they used in those times. Also
Ori which was a cocoa butter too.
Obatala would walk with his tall walking staff
& his white iruke. Obatala doesn't have any
children as said above, he is initiated on their
heads. His children are very smart and wise
yet they can also be very sneaky too. He
is the patron orisha of all deformed humans
such as albinos, down syndrome and any
medically challenged children. He also has
children that he created who do not have any of
these symptoms, but took their heads due to he
loves them dearly. Note this I don't understand
being that he is a loving God?
His abode is made up of nothing but, the finest &
purest white cloths found. He is the owner
of the finest silver that the Orisha Boyuto found
and gave to Obatala as a gift. Obatala is a swift
and just judge. He is the one that contains the
key to this son Ochosi's house. Whenever there
is war or disagreement among the orishas,
humans or nations - Obatala is summoned
to bring peace and to restore order to
the land of Earth.
I hope that you enjoyed the life of the
African God Obatala of the White Cloth.
Love you all my dear friends & followers.
