Rewind: Just to touch your cross

a face in the crowd

Today is the feast of the Black Nazarene.  Took this image exactly a year ago when I was still working as a staff photographer for Manila Bulletin. Every year, thousands of devotees flock to Manila to join this procession. They believe touching even just the cross will bring them Jesus’ guidance and blessing to ease the “daily crosses” they carry.

This image reminds me of the story about a woman who wanted to touch Jesus’ cloak as he walked through a rushing crowd.
