MANILA - A 23-year-old Black Nazarene devotee made his annual devotion this year extra special by getting on his knee, not just to pray, but to propose to his girlfriend along the Traslacion’s procession route.

Kim Noel Yamat said he decided to pop the question to his girlfriend Mary Joie Flores during the Traslacion because they were both devotees of the Black Nazarene.

Other attendees of the Philippines’ largest religious procession clapped and cheered after Flores agreed to marry Yamat, and sealed it with a kiss.

The couple is planning to have their wedding by March this year.
