Life-size replicas of the Black Nazarene image will be placed in the prayer stations along the route of Traslacion 2019 for the veneration of devotees, a church official said on Wednesday.

This, according to Alex Irasga, aims to lessen the number of devotees going to the Quirino Grandstand for the actual Pahalik on the image of the Black Nazarene.

“Unlike last year, ito po ay maglalagay kami ng mga replica na kasing laki rin po ng prinuprusisyon para magkaroon rin kayo ng parang pahalik sa mga lugar na iyon,” Irasga said in a press briefing.

“Ang intensyon po nito ay para mabawasan yung congestion ng pahalik. So ayun po, sisimulan rin ng January 8 yung pahalik na yan,” he added.

For the 2019 Traslacion, about 14 praying stations will again be placed along the route of the procession starting from the Quirino grandstand area and ending at Quiapo area, Irasga said.

The annual Pahalik of the Black Nazarene image at the Quirino Grandstand is usually attended by millions of devotees of the miraculous image from across the country.

The Pahalik is part of the celebration of the Feast of the Black Nazarene which is celebrated every January 9.

Irasga added that church officials are considering to change the exit route and the schedule of the Pahalik in Quirino Grandstand.  /muf
