The Black Nazarene’s gesture of veneration, often called “Pahalik,” ended hours after Filipino devotees trudged through a long queue to wipe their handkerchief or kiss the Nazareno’s image.

“Wala nang pila, naubos na yung kaninang huling batch ng mga pumila para sa ‘pahalik.’ Yung mga sumunod na pumila kanina [ay] mga tauhan ng pulisya na nag-duty rito at mga tauhan ng Bureau of Fire Protection (BFP)," RH Raymund Dadpaas said in a report.

"Sila na ang huling pumila at ito ay hudyat ng pagtatapos ng ‘pahalik’ dito sa bahagi ng Quirino Grandstand,” he added.

Dadpaas also reported that the stage which housed the Black Nazarene’s image was being taken off following the last batch of devotees.

“Inaalis na rin yung ginamit na stage kung saan nakapwesto rin yung imahe ng Poong Nazareno. Tuluyan nang paglilinis ang ginagawa ngayon sa bahagi ng Quirino Grandstand,” he said.

According to the Minor Basilica of the Black Nazarene, devotees offer their prayers while hoping to touch, kiss, or wipe their handkerchiefs to the revered image of the Black Nazarene during the “Pahalik” activity.
