Lenten Message

Press Releases
23 March 2013

I join fellow Christians as we observe the Lenten Season this year and in the fervent prayer for God’s blessings and the guidance of the Holy Spirit so peace may reign in our country, particularly as we embark this year on another nationwide political exercise.

Let us take the Holy Week as an opportunity to reflect in the heart of Christ’s message for us: charity. And as the Lord Jesus obediently bore His cross and died to redeem us from our sins—the supreme example of charity--let us resolve to bear with the same humility and dedication our own respective crosses--our responsibilities to our family, our community, our nation.

May the glorious resurrection of our Lord give us a renewed sense of commitment to live up to the Christian ideals and inspire us to strive harder in building a strong moral foundation for a meaningful national change for all Filipinos.
