Friday is Lolo Uweng’s day of devotion. Though the Shrine is open seven days a week, devotees prefer to particularly come to Him on a Friday, commemorating the first Good Friday when Christ suffered and died on the cross to consummate His salvific act. On this day, devotees begin streaming into the Shrine even before sunrise. Also at this time, devotees would start cueing for the chance to touch Him or even just His garments at the Veneration Chapel. This brief physical encounter is most sacred and solemn for a devotee, where he or she would utter a short prayer of adoration, contrition, thanksgiving or supplication to the Lord God Jesus Christ, whom Lolo Uweng truly represents in persona.
