PHILIPPINES: The bishop of Kalookan, north of Manila, reminded devotees of the Black Nazarene, whose feast will be celebrated on Jan. 9, to show devotion by keeping the surroundings clean during the festivities. Bishop Deogracias Iñiguez Jr. said it is a "moral responsibility" for devotees to watch over the environment. “As Nazarene devotees, let us strive to follow the path of Jesus and integrate our respect for the environment with our eternal devotion to His divine grace,” he said. He said the "age-old devotion" to the Black Nazarene should translate to a "kinder relationship" with the environment. "As stewards of His Creation, we are morally responsible to watch over and foster the environment,” he added. PR12752.1635
