 President Benigno S. Aquino III's Easter Message
 

Kaisa ang sambayanang pilipino, ipinagdiriwang natin ang muling pagkabuhay ni Hesukristo matapos niyang tubusin ang kasalanan ng sanlibutan. Sagisag po ito: sakripisyo at wagas na pagmamahalang bukal ng buhay na walang hanggan.

Sa pagbangon ng panginoon mula sa kamatayan, muling natanglawan ng liwanag ang sangkatauhan. Marami ang namangha at higit na tumibay ang pananampalataya.

Gayumpaman, may ilang gaya ni Tomas, ang apostol na hindi naiwaksi ang duda mula sa kanyang puso. Ayon nga po sa aklat ni Juan, Kabanata 20, Bersikulo 29, nang magpakita si Hesus sa kanyang mga apostol; sinabi niya kay Tomas: "dahil nakita mo na ako, naniwala ka na? Pinagpala ang mga naniniwala kahit hindi nila ako nakita."

Gaya po ng landas na piniling tahakin ni Hesukristo, nanindigan at muling bumangon ang ating bayan mula sa malubhang katiwalian at kahirapan. Naibalik na rin ang tiwala ng taumbayan sa pamahalaan. may piring na muli ang katarungan: napaparusahan ang nagkakasala, mayaman man o makapangyarihan.

Patuloy ang paglago ng ekonomiya; patuloy ang paglawak ng saklaw ng ating mga serbisyong panlipunan. Kabilang rito ang milyun-milyong benepisyaryo ng Pantawid Pamilyang Pilipino, programa ng mga kababayan nating nakikinabang sa Philhealth; at ang libo-libong scholars ng Tesda na hindi lamang naka-graduate, kundi nakakahanap din ng trabaho. Halimbawa po nito ang 91 porsiyento ng tesda graduates sa larangan ng semiconductor at electronics, mula Oktubre 2012 hanggang Disyembre 2013, na agad ay nagkatrabaho.

Tinitiyak po nating nabibigyan ng de-kalidad na edukasyon ang ating mga estudyante. Nabura na po natin ang nadatnan nating kakulangan sa upuan, libro, at silid-aralan.

Gayundin, nakatutok na tayo sa kapakanan ng ating mga pulis, sundalo, at informal settlers. Ngayon, may mauuwian na silang disente, ligtas, at abot-kayang tahanan.

Kamakailan lang din po, nilagdaan natin ang Comprehensive Agreement on the Bangsamoro sa pagitan ng inyong gobyerno at ng Moro Islamic Liberation Front (MILF). Sa kasunduang ito na pinanday ng tapat at maayos na ugnayan, abot-kamay na ang mapayapang Mindanao na magbubukal ng patas at malawakang oportunidad para sa bawat Lumad, Muslim, at Kristiyano. Naisumite na rin po ng ating Transition Commission, at isusumite sa kongreso ang panukalang batas sa Bangsamoro.
