The Black Nazarene (Spanish: El Nazareno Negro, Nuestro Padre Jesús Nazareno, Filipino: Poóng Itím na Nazareno, Hesus Nazareno) is a life-sized image of a dark-skinned, kneeling Jesus Christ carrying the Cross. It is venerated by many devotees.

The Black Nazarene was originally carved by an unknown Mexican artist from dark wood in the 16th century and then brought to the Philippines in 1606. It depicts Jesus en route to his crucifixion. Pope Innocent X granted recognition to the lay Confraternity of Santo Cristo Jesús Nazareno in 1650 for the promotion of the devotion to Jesus through the icon.

At Mary, Star of the Sea, Catholic Church, we continue this devotion. Let us all follow our Lord, Jesus Christ.
