Devotees Gather For The Beginning Of The Feast Of Black Nazareth Celebration

Images of Jesus Christ are paraded by Catholic devotees during the start of the Feast of the Black Nazarene on January 7, 2014 in Quiapo district, Manila, Philippines. The Feast of the Black Nazarene culminates in a day-long procession on January 9 as barefoot devotees march to see and touch the image of the Black Nazarene. The Black Nazarene is a dark wood sculpture of Jesus brought to the Philippines in 1606 from Spain and considered miraculous by Filipino devotees. As many as 6 million devotees are expected to attend during the culmination in this predominantly Catholic nation in Southeast Asia. By Dondi Tawatao/Getty Images.
