FEAST OF THE BLACK NAZARENE

Sun.Star Cagayan de Oro - - Tops Stories -

Ev­ery Jan­uary 9, mil­lions of devo­tees gather to cel­e­brate the Feast of the Black Nazarene. They take part in the spec­tac­u­lar re­li­gious pro­ces­sion lo­cally known as the “Trasla­cion,” dur­ing which devo­tees carry a replica of the statue across the Philip­pines. Catholics from all over the Philip­pines take the op­por­tu­nity to be able to get close enough to touch the im­age in the hopes of re­ceiv­ing a miracle or heal­ing. On this feast day, may we be re­minded that the re­siliency of Filipinos comes from the prac­tice of our faith. Ang ka lig-on sa mga Pilipino ug labi na sa Ka­gayanons nga nakasi­nati sa Vinta, nag gikan sa atong paglaum ug pag­too sa Gi­noo. This gives me strength to con­tinue to serve our con­stituents. In­deed, we are driven by our faith to be a light to oth­ers. Happy Feast Day of the Black Nazarene and may He bless us with boun­ti­ful bless­ings to pur­sue de­vel­op­ment work in Ca­gayan de Oro!
