Here’s a quick post in relation with our recent trip in Binondo. It’s not actually a visit but more of a stop-over. If you happen to pass by the corner of Ongpin and Tomas Pinpin St, you will notice a small street-side temple shrine where people can be seen burning joss (insence) sticks and make offerings. This is the Sto Cristo De Longos De Binondo! The original image of Sto Cristo De Longos was actually displayed near the side entrance of church of Binondo but you can also find two nearby shrines in Binondo; one located in San Nicholas District and other one is this Shrine located in Ongpin.
The miraculous image has an interesting story. It was said that in the 16th Century, a deaf mute Chinese was getting a pail of water in the Barrio of Longos (this is where the shrine in San Nicholas District is located). Upon pulling the pail out, he saw a blackened corpus of the Crucified Christ. Immediately, he was healed of his muteness and began shouting about his discovery. The venerated image was first enshrine to Capilla de San Gabriel before it got destroyed by an earthquake in 1863.
