The feast of the Black Nazarene is held last January 9, 2018. The image’s wooden base is referred to as the peana while its carriage or carroza used in processions is called the Ándas (from the Spanish andar, “to move forward”). The term ándas commonly refers to the shoulder-borne palanquins of religious images and was retained for the icon’s carriage which replaces the palanquins used in processions up until the late 20th century.
It’s not a joke to go up in the andas of the Black Nazarene while the procession is being held in the streets of Manila. But, the Kapamilya Star Angeline Quinto did not see this as a hindrance for her which she believes that this is her calling every year as a devotee of the Black Nazarene.
With the help of the other devotees termed as hijos who are guarding the image of the Black Nazarene during Translation, Angeline Quinto managed to go up in the andas to hold the Black Nazarene and wipe her handkerchief and other devotees towels. Angeline managed to stay up a minute before engaging again back to the crowd with safety.

This is the fourth time the actress joined the yearly celebration. According to her, it was her “panata” because it helped her devotion to the Black Nazarene to become deep and it was her faith that helped her mother’s life. “Fouth time ko na ito gagawin kasi ito talaga yung psasalamat ko sa Poon dahil sa mga biyayang natatanggap ko. Pati yung mga hindi ko naman hiningi sa kaniya,” Angeline mentioned in an interview. “Ito po yung pinaka mahirap na pag-sampa ko sa mga nakaraang taon pero pasasalamat ko pong malaki sa mga tumulong sa akin.”
