    It was taken last January 9, 2015 during the Black Nazarene Day. On this day every year, millions of extremely devout Filipino Roman Catholics, recently quoted to the figures of six to eight million strong, take part in the procession known as the Feast of the Black Nazarene. According to many Filipino believers, just touching the statue briefly can cure the person who touched it of all illnesses.
