Kapamilya actress and singer Angeline Quinto is just one of the many celebrities who are known devotees of the miraculous Black Nazarene. In January last year, the singer was seen braving the procession together with thousands of fellow devotees professing their faith. This year, Angeline was delighted to share that she received her very own replica of the famous image. In an Instagram post, the actress thanked Maestro Joseph Macalas for his work:
“Napaka gandang regalo naman po nito. Maraming maraming salamat po ‘Maestro Joseph Magcalas’ of Apalit Pampanga sa napakagandang imahe ng Mahal Na Poong Nazareno…”
Even before becoming a celebrity, Angeline was already a devotee of the Black Nazarene. In 2013, she shared in an interview how her devotion and faith to the Nazarene saved her mother’s life. According to the singer, her mother had an illness when she was younger. She would then go to Quiapo every day after spending time with her mother in the Philippine Heart Center to pray for her recovery. When her mother beat her illness, Angeline knew it was a miracle. She has since devoted her life to the Black Nazarene.
Angeline also believes that her devotion helped her achieve her dreams in life by helping her with her career. She shared how she was once holding up her two rosaries to have them blessed by the priest when a drop of holy water reached her tongue. Her mother told her that it was a good sign, and Angeline believes that she owes her voice to the Black Nazarene.
Now, the actress is more than happy to have her own replica of the miraculous Black Nazarene in her own home.
