Black Nazarene Two Days Ago / by John Javellana

Devotees participate in a procession of the Black Nazarene in Manila January 9, 2010. Hundreds of thousands of barefoot devotees thronged the streets of Manila on Saturday as a centuries old black statue of Jesus Christ, believed to have healing powers, was paraded through the old city. The wooden, life-sized Black Nazarene, carved in Mexico and brought to the Philippines in the early 17th century, is taken out of the Quiapo Church on Jan. 9 each year for the largest parade in the predominately Roman Catholic country

Same same, but different ya? For me it’s just a bad case of too much devotion.
