Annual Feast of the Black Nazarene
The Statute of the Black Nazarene, which was brought from Mexico about 408 years ago to Manila is believe by many to hold miraculous power.
The 6 kilometer procession route from the Quirino Grandstand to the Quiapo Church saw scores of people overcome heat, sweat, hunger, fatigue and bodily harm just to be able to hold on to the rope that pulls the carriage of the revered statue. Many climbed in a sea of humanity just to touch, kiss and wipe their white clothes or handkerchiefs on the cross in a belief that it can somehow transfer power to the devotee.
