    The Black Jesus Christ

     
    The Feast of the Black Nazarene is one of the most attended annual religious gathering in the catholic church. Millions of devotees attended the procession this year, which started after the Holy Mass celebrated by Manila Archbishop Luis Antonio Cardinal Tagle at the Quirino Grandstand in Rizal Park. The traslacion referring to the transfer of the centuries-old image back to the Minor Basilica of the Black Nazarene (Quiapo Church) started at 7:00 AM is one of the highlights of the fiesta every January 9th.
    These devotees believed that if they touch the rope that pulls the carriage of the black nazarene, will grant their wishes. As well as wiping the statue with their towels and handkerchief will create a miracle for them.
