On Thursday, the celebration at the Luneta has started where the Black Nazarene from Quiapo becomes accessible for a larger crowd of devotees to kiss and touch. This is known as the “pahalik”.

The famous church, known for the miraculous black image of the genuflecting Christ with the cross on His shoulder, had gained popular devotion throughout the archipelago. The church received the papal blessing of Pope John Paul II as the Minor Basilica of the Black Nazarene in 1987.

The annual celebration of the Feast of the Black Nazarene’s arrival in Quiapo church is a partnership of the Church with government and various NGOs. This collaborative effort is crucial in ensuring a peaceful and meaningful observance of the feast for the majority of the faithful and the devotees as well.

Reports say that over 3,500 personnel of the Philippine National Police (PNP) were deployed to secure the Feast of the Black Nazarene.

Meanwhile, Manila Mayor Estrada suspends classes in all levels (public and private schools) for this day.
