Feast of the Black Nazarene
January 8, 2017 6:50am CST
I respect other religions. But I don't like the practice of Catholic Church about feast of the Black Nazarene. January 9 tomorrow is feast again. Media will cover the occasion. I just see many issues about this celebration. People crowd the street and act wild during the occasion. They need to push everybody around to get near the statue. I think it's needless since they can touch the image anytime or some other day they want without getting wild and out of control. There are sea of people stressing themselves. I don't believe in images because we need to pray to God in spirit not in using images. Why the need to put themselves in danger being suffocated and crush during procession. I don't know why the priest does not correct this wrong practice. They don't show respect to the image sometimes they can drag the image down with too much pulling and touching. Poor image of Jesus. He could be very stress of what people is doing to him during this occasion.

And this morning i was shocked that it took 22 hours before it reached Quiapo church . Those people are so fanatics . Though i respect all of them for their determination and endurance to be able to participate in the procession .
