THE BLACK NAZARENE

Tomorrow the feast for the Black Nazarene will be celebrated ,according to news the procession for the Black Nazarene has started Early this evening from Luneta going to Quiapo Church tomorrow, and an estimated of 8 million devotees is expected to join the procession route. This decade practice makes Quiapo  church popular during the first month of the year.Despite high risk on joining the crowd of parade devotees knows no bound for inhibiting there faith for the said miraculous Black Nazarene. Hearing those devout sharing their piece of story on how the saint have help them in so some areas of their lives , make me conclude how serious and faithful they are to fulfill their vows every year to get near to the image replica without minding the damage and fracture they might incur.

Meanwhile, the President of the Philippines , warned the devotees of possible danger they could be encountering in the procession of The Black Nazarene that according to his Police and PNP officials they do have leads of some local terrorist in the said event that is trying to take advantage of the feast so to lessen the risk Pres. Aquino suggested the devotees to stay at home tomorrow to prevent casualties and stampede along crowds. Of course the President also says that the Police and PNP will be vigilant and will secure the peace and safety of all in the feast of Black Nazarene. But, to stay at home is best to avoid accident while watching updates of the parade.

Other critic says that warning the public for possible risk of terrorist on the day of celebration of the feast of Black Nazarene is not the duty the President to announced on television, While some say the President is just doing it for the good and safety of his people. And what can I say about this? for me this is a matter of faith, security of well being, I think anyone can give there opinion over this event but nevertheless the decision still lies on people.But to the Police, your main purpose of staying in your designated area is not only to watch every individual but also to take full responsibility as if you are watching the safety of your own family member. Happy Feast .
