Lent is for Family, Spirituality – Bongbong

3 April 2010

Lent-is-for-familyRep. Bongbong Marcos and family began their observance of Lent by visiting historic Baclaran Church in Paranaque City and communing with the faithful.

“Lent is the perfect time for families to renew their spiritual foundations and strengthen ties among family members,” said Marcos.

“A citizenry with close family ties and strong religious foundations is the secret to a vibrant, peaceful and productive society, which is what we direly need in these trying times,” he added.

The traditional Visita Iglesia, Marcos said, is one way for families to bond and strengthen their spiritual foundations as they visit churches together to offer prayers and retrace the Stations of the Cross of Jesus Christ.
