Malacanang expressed high hopes that the country would overcome various challenges and make it through the darkness and Calvary of corruption with the government and the Filipino people’s concerted efforts towards progress and development.
In a radio interview over government-run radio station dzRB Radyo ng Bayan Presidential Deputy Spokesperson Abigail Valte delivered President Benigno S. Aquino III’s Easter message depicting the Chief Executive’s optimism on the country’s brighter future.
“I am one with the Filipino nation in celebrating the Lord’s resurrection from the dead as He saved mankind from sins,” the Easter message read which was released Saturday.
The President further expressed in his message that the people should not waver in their faith in God and must continue following His lessons.
“This is the first Easter celebrated by the new administration,” the message read.
“No matter how dark the episode we had been through, the advancement of honest and good governance, along with strong faith and cooperation, would be our foundation to overcome the Calvary that we have to deal with as we came in (government),” it added.
President Aquino also said that the people must intensify charitable works to manifest God’s love and compassion.
“Sa pagwawakas ng semana santa, hindi sana magtapos dito ang ating taimtim na pananalig sa Panginoon…” President Aquino said.
“Ipagpatuloy natin ang pagtupad sa kanyang mga aral at lalo pa natin paigtingin ang ating mga pagkakawanggawa… “ he added.
“Each and every one of us can contribute to the end of corruption to lift our people from poverty and difficulties. It is only through this that the people would feel the real light of change,” the President said.
The President also wished all Filipinos a peaceful and blessed celebration of Easter. (PCOO/PIA9-BST)
