MANILA, Philippines – A crab bearing the image of Jesus Christ has drawn the attention of residents and tourists in Legazpi City.
Lilian Antiquera, a resident of Barangay San Roque, said she was about the cook the crab when she noticed an image resembling Jesus Christ on its body.
Antiquera then placed the crab in an altar, believing it holds miraculous powers.
Since Thursday last week, the crab has been drawing the attention of locals and tourists.
“Nung nalaman na nila po at nakita na nila, mas lalo pong dumami, iba-ibat klaseng tao ang pumupunta. Mayroon din po akong nakikita na nag-wiwish na mawala na yung sakit na nila…dinadayo na po kami ngayon,” Antiquera said.
Lawyer Catherine Manahan travelled all the way from Manila just to see the crab. She said the image may be sending a message.
“Siguro may dapat na gustong ipaalam sa tao, siguro magbalik-loob tayo, magdasal tayo,” she said.
Parish priest Fr. Ramon Tronqued said the crab has to undergo a certain process to prove if it is indeed miraculous.
Tronqued, however, said there is nothing wrong if devotees flock to see the crab if this will enhance their faith.– Report from Jose Caretero, ABS-CBN News
