At the “Walk of Faith,” life-size Black Nazarene images are not permitted.

The “Walk of Faith” procession, which will be held on January 8, the day before the feast day of the black Jesus Christ, will not allow life-size replicas or representations that are longer than 2 feet, the festival’s organizers informed followers on Thursday.

All the components for the Black Nazarene feast on January 9 are present, according to Quiapo Church adviser Alex Irasga, with the exception of the Traslacion, or customary procession of the image.

In a news conference, he stated, “Our goal is to be able to organize a ‘Walk of faith’ or procession in an orderly, calm, and very pious manner to declare the devotion in the faith of our Lord Jesus Nazarene.

The Nazareno 2023 organizers anticipate that the procession will leave the Quirino Grandstand at 2 a.m. and last for less than two hours.

“We will only permit copies that can be handled by hand; images longer than 2 feet are not permitted. We’ve already informed the police that there would be checkpoints on the roads leading into Quiapo and the Grandstand and that anyone carrying particularly large photos will not be admitted.

Fr. Rufino Sescon Jr., rector of the Minor Basilica of the Black Nazarene (Quiapo Church), will preside over the midnight Mass on January 8 prior to the Walk of Faith.

They advise followers to pack booze, wear face masks, and engage in social isolation while attending the march.

He advised, “You can bring a cloth, a candle, use face masks, and bring a disinfectant.”

Irasga, on the other hand, requested followers to bring all replicas to Plaza Miranda so that they might be blessed from December 27 to December 29.

He continued, “Images will be blessed in the morning and in the afternoon.”

The feast day Mass will be celebrated in the Quirino Grandstand at midnight on January 9 under the leadership of Manila Archbishop Cardinal Jose Advincula.

Beginning on January 7, 2023, a picture of the Black Nazarene will be displayed at the grandstand.
