Angeline Quinto received a unique and special gift at the start of 2018 – a replica of the Black Nazarene or Poong Nazareno.
KAMI learned from Angeline’s Instagram post that she received the gift from “Maestro Joseph Magcalas” of Pampanga.
“Napaka gandang regalo naman po nito. Maraming maraming salamat po ‘Maestro Joseph Magcalas’ of Apalit Pampanga sa napakagandang imahe ng
“Mahal Na Poong Nazareno. Maraming salamat po. Thank you very much din bhe Mark Dave Roque Saan,” Angeline wrote.
According to ABS-CBN News, the singer revealed in a previous interview that her devotion to the Black Nazarene helped save her mother’s life.
She also took part in the Poong Nazareno procession last year.
A netizen explained in the comments section of Angeline’s IG post why Catholics have statues and images:
“ang pagkakaroon ng mga imahen ng santo at Diyos ay hindi pagsamba sa kanilang rebulto kundi alaala ng mga santo at Diyos na ating sinasamba. Kagaya ng mga retrato ng ating mahal sa buhay at retrato ng ating sarili.
“Ang pagtatago at paglalagay sa mga nakikitang lugar sa bahay gaya ng wall o sa salas eh HINDI PAGSAMBA dun sa tao kundi para lang reminder natin sa tao at ipakita ang pagmamahal natin. Ganun din sa mga rebulto ng santo at Diyos sa simbahan.
“Ang mga katoliko ay di sinasamba ang rebulto kundi yung mga taong ni-rrepresentante nila.”
The feast of the Black Nazarene is celebrated every January 9 in the Philippines.
Since millions of Filipinos participate in the Translacion or “solemn transfer,” Mayor Joseph Estrada has declared no classes in Manila today.
Another celebrity who is a devotee of the Black Nazarene is Kapamilya superstar Coco Martin.
