Nazareno 2022: Unwavering Faith


The Feast of the Black Nazarene has been a significant event in my life since I've been a devotee in 2013. Since then I celebrate its feast day every 9th of January. This annual religious festivity gives meaning to my life as I strengthen my faith and religious beliefs.

For the 2nd year since 2020, the annual "traslacion" was canceled due to the threat of the Covid-19 pandemic. However, a mass is celebrated at the Quiapo church with only a limited number of devotees inside. The believers are just unstoppable and dare to take a risk just to celebrate their faith. The pandemic didn't stop them from expressing their unwavering faith, their love, and devotion.

On January 9, 2019, I was able to celebrate and witness the "traslacion" in Manila. It was perfect timing and a blessing that I've witnessed the massive flocks of devotees for the first time. For many years, I've only seen it on TV, until I've seen the activity before my eyes live as it happens.

This year, I'm happy to celebrate the annual feast through a TV Sunday mass. The place of the Black Nazarene in Quiapo, Manila is home to several stories of miracles and hope. Thousands to millions of devotees have their testimonies on how their faith and devotion brought meaning and strength into their lives.

I'm also a living testimony on how the Black Nazarene has changed my life for the better. It never failed me for my prayer requests and intentions. And that the Black Nazarene is a symbol of unwavering faith of everyone who believes in his Divine power, love, and light.
