    Black Nazarene draws 5M devotees

    More than 5 million barefoot devotees paraded the centuries-old icon of the Black Nazarene through Manila on Friday, in what Church officials described as a dry run for the visit of Pope Francis to the Philippines next week, according to INQUIRER.net.
    Pope Francis is arriving in Manila on Jan 15 for a five-day visit that will include a meeting with survivors of last year’s earthquake in Bohol province and Supertyphoon “Haiyan” in Leyte province.


    Organizers of the papal visit are expecting to top the 4-million attendance at the Mass said by St. John Paul II at Rizal Park to cap the World Youth Day celebration and his visit to Manila in January 1995.

    “Yes, the Black Nazarene fiesta is a dress rehearsal for the papal visit, especially the culminating Mass at Quirino Grandstand in Luneta, Manila, on Jan. 18,” the Rev. Anton Pascual, head of the papal visit subcommittee on media relations, said. “Perhaps 5 million attendees present is an understatement since Pope Francis’ popularity soared globally as iconic,” said Pascual, who is also the executive director of the charity Caritas Manila.

    About 5,000 policemen were deployed for the procession, with 1,000 military personnel on standby, Senior Supt Jigs Coronel of the Manila police said.

    “This is like a mini-papal event in scope,” Coronel said. “We’ll be able to put to test our security plans, crowd control, anticrime measures, emergency and medical response.”

    For next week’s papal visit, 40,000 military personnel and 25,000 policemen will be deployed to secure the Pope and keep order at public events in Manila and Leyte.

    I Just finished reading "Hitler's Pope" about Pius 12 (Pacelli). Priests & other Religious Ministers of all religious persuasions are the World's 2nd oldest profession.

    Then, four or five days later the Pope, whose church has done the best possible job of keeping Filipino families poor for centuries, shows up for a four-day frenzy of lunacy. Six MILLION are expected just to hear one mass in a Manila park.

    Then weeks to clean up the mess. Manila's off my list until February.
    How did the Pope keep the PH poor ?

    I just saw an article calling the Pope a "Marxist!" Reading of his history in Argentina he definitely has those leanings. As Pope of course he'll live in splendor while the adoring mobs will live in squalor...typical Marxist.

    It kicks off tomorrow evening. To add to the misery, a large tropical storm is expected to hit tomorrow. They blocked all the streets Tuesday to start doing dry runs. It took a friend of mine over 5 hours to get from the airport to Makati - usually well under an hour. Sooooo glad I no longer live in Manila.

    He's a rock star.
    I'll bet the Rolling Stones couldn't get that with a free concert.

    I can't fathom what the port-o-potty logistics must be like three million...let alone for six million.

    I heard he called the Filippine clergy corrupt. And he told people should not proliferate like rabbits.
