“Dati, ‘pag nagdadasal ako doon, ‘Bigyan niyo lang po ako ng trabaho, kahit ano, kahit hindi ninyo na ako patulugin. Tapos ibinigay niya lahat,” was Coco Martin’s explanation of his deep devotion to the Black Nazarene. The actor said his numerous hit shows and movies, including a stint on the directing chair in “Ang Panday,” show that his devotion to the ebony statue of Jesus Christ is not misplaced. ‘Ang Panday’ movie Instagram page

Last year, Angeline Quinto’s decision to take part in the highly-intense, hours-long barefoot procession just to touch the statue of the Black Nazarene had left some her followers scratching their heads. But the act was not just for show, as she has repeatedly shared how her devotion saved her mother’s life. Angeline Quinto’s Instagram page

It didn’t take much for Giselle Sanchez to believe in the miraculous powers of the Black Nazarene. Nearly a decade ago she fell ill and was left unable to work. That’s when she turned to the centuries-old, statue of Jesus Christ for help. According to Sanchez, she shows her gratitude by becoming one of the sponsors of the church's feeding program.
