0 123

Isko Moreno is pleased that the annual feast of the Black Nazarene did not draw the huge crowds it used to attract amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

The Manila mayor made several pleas for the faithful to stay home despite their annual panata, with the yearly procession cancelled for health reasons. Streets were empty during the supposed January 9 event.

“Maraming salamat sa lahat ng tumugon sa aking panawagan na obserbahan ang kapistahan ng Itim na Nazareno sa ating mga tahanan at doon taimtim na magdasal para sa ating sarili at sa bayan!,” the politiko said.

“Salamat rin sa Quiapo Church at sa mga hijos sa pagintindi ng sitwasyon dulot ng COVID-19.”
