Niño  (Child Jesus) from the Basilica del Sto. Niño in Cebu  City, Philippines held last Saturday January 17.

Niño Church, where the original Image of the Sto. Niño is enshrined. A touching scene greeted me – people were waving their hands, most of them carrying images of the Child Jesus as they praise.

Niño for 12 years  now.“This was a wedding gift to us back in 2002. The  next year, I decided to join the Sinulog Solemn  Procession as thanksgiving and praise to the Child  Jesus. He then blessed me with two healthy boys”,  she recounted.
