Keeping the faith: Erap receives blessing at Quiapo Church
Manila Mayor Joseph Estrada is back in the public eye after losing his reelection bid.
Estrada shared photos on Facebook Friday of his visit to Quiapo Church.
The event was an opportunity for Estrada to talk to the parish priest, Msgr. Hernando Coronel.
On the church’s behalf, Coronel presented Estrada with a plaque of appreciation for the local government’s assistance in organizing the Feast of the Black Nazarene yearly.
As a parting gift, Coronel prayed over Estrada with the original severed hand of the image of the Black Nazarene, which is thought to be miraculous.
