Nearly nine million Filipinos partake in Black Nazarene procession


Millions of people flocked to the streets of Manila to see the procession of the Black Nazarene, a darkened wood statue of Jesus carrying a cross.  

During the procession dozens of people attempted to kiss or rub the statue, believing it has miraculous properties.  

According to its story, a priest bought the Nazarene statue in Mexico in the 1600's. While on board a ship to the Philippines, it caught on fire, but instead of burning, it just turned a darker color.
