MANILA - Over a million Filipinos, many barefoot, participated in this year's Traslacion in a display of intense Catholic faith.

Devotees muscled their way to touch the centuries-old Black Nazarene, whom they believe to hold miraculous healing powers. 

Hundreds have been injured in the frenzied outpouring of devotion while the carriage was wheeled through the streets of Manila. 

The cross-bearing image returned to its home in the Quiapo Church after 21 hours.
