President Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos Jr. on Sunday called on Filipinos to take the celebration of Easter Sunday as a time for renewal and recovery.
In his message, Marcos said Easter teaches the faithful that, as long as life is lived in Christ, “love and hope will remain ever so boundless and will be the cornerstones for the positive transformation of our society.”
“May this day be an opportunity for us to pause and give thanks for the opportunity for renewal and recovery as we push through our quest for genuine unity and progress for all,” Marcos said.
He also said that the triumph of Jesus’ resurrection inspires people to be stewards of faith and compassion despite the circumstances.
“As we celebrate the magnificent glory of our risen Savior, let us all take into heart this Christian foundation as we work for and welcome better days for ourselves, our families, and our neighbors as well,” he added. —Giselle Ombay/KG, GMA Integrated News
