Senator Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos Jr. called on the Filipino people to set aside differences and work together for a brighter future.
In his Easter Sunday message, the senator from Ilocos Norte said that Jesus Christ’s resurrection should be an opportunity for everyone to overcome challenges and start anew.
“Like our Lord’s journey through his passion and resurrection, I pray that we can rise above our challenges and differences and work together to achieve our dream of a brighter future,” he said.
“Just like Jesus’ ultimate sacrifice of giving his life to save mankind, we should strive to help our fellowmen especially the poor and the week,” he added.
“Because He loved us, he willingly went through brutal suffering, humiliation and the ultimate sacrifice of giving up his life so we may be redeemed. In our own little ways, may we all strive to follow our Lord’s example and care for the weak, the poor and the downtrodden,” Marcos stressed.
