LAOAG CITY – Locals are flocking to Barangay Gabut Sur after a resident said she saw an image of Jesus Christ on an electric post there.
According to Ruby Jean Arquillo, she first noticed the image on the post while she was fetching water, but ignored it. Later, she found the image still there, so she informed her mother and relatives.
"Nung una kong nakita, umulan nang malakas at kumulog. Hindi naman masasabing drawing, ‘di ba? Milagro yan,” said Arquillo.
After stories of the image spread, residents trekked to the area to see the supposed image of Jesus Christ.
Many among the crowd offered prayers, and placed lit candles at the post. Sightseers also took photos.
Fr. Joey Ranjo, spokesperson of the Diocese of Laoag, said there is nothing wrong if people believe in the alleged image of Jesus Christ.
"Pinakaimportante ang pagsisimba. Dito natin maipapakita ang paniniwala sa Diyos," he said.
