The Black Nazarene refers to a life-sized, dark colored statue of Jesus Christ that was brought to Manila, Philippines from Mexico on May 31, 1606 by the first group of Augustinian Recollect friars sent by Spain. The image was charred black in a fire that broke out on the ship during its trip to Manila from Mexico. It also survived two great fires that destroyed the Quiapo Church in Manila in 1791 and 1929. It also withstood the great earthquakes of 1645 and 1863, and the destructive bombing of Manila in 1945 during WWII. In 1608, the Recollect Fathers started promoting the devotion to the suffering of our Lord. The confraternity or Cofradia de Jesus Nazareno was established on April 21, 1621. The brotherhood got its papal blessing from His Holiness Pope Innocent X on April 20, 1650. In the 19th century, Pope Pius VII granted indulgence to those who prayed before the image of the Black Nazarene.
