- Every year, millions of people attend the feast of the Black Nazarene
- It is the vow of many Filipinos to join the parade of the Black Nazarene
- But it looks like some of the devotees do not have discipline
We see Black Nazarene's devotees as holy or blessed because of their faith and patience in the longest procession. KAMI learned that an unusual incident happened while the procession is still ongoing.
Recently, CNN Philippines posted a video of the Black Nazarene's devotees who entered a private property where a catering event is happening. The people tried to get food and water on the event.
Others almost fell into the catering tables during the commotion. The owners of the property were then forced to push everyone out of the event.
"EARLIER: Black Nazarene devotees swell into a private property where a catering event was ongoing on Castillejos Street in Quiapo, Manila. Some tried to get food and water, while others almost fell into the catering tables during the commotion. The owners then were forced to push them out of the gate." it captioned.
Rex Remitio, the one who took the video also shared this on his Facebook account.
"Hindi ko alam kung nasa eksena ako ng Titanic kanina. Sa pelikula ko lang napapanood ‘to eh. Pero ang masasabi ko lang, kahit madapa ka, kailangan mo pa ring bumangon at i-roll ang camera." he captioned.
Here are some of the netizens' comments about the said incident:
Black Nazarene is a life-sized image of a dark-skinned, kneeling Jesus Christ carrying the Cross enshrined in the Minor Basilica of the Black Nazarene in the Quiapo district of the City of Manila, Philippines.
Every January 9, the Traslacion of the Black Nazarene (commemorating the "solemn transfer" of the image's copy from San Nicolas de Tolentino in Intramuros to Quiapo) makes its way along the streets of Quiapo, with attendees reaching up to 12 million.
KAMI hopes that these people would realize the mistakes that they have done.
