 President Aquino joins fellow Christians in observing Holy Week
 

President Benigno S. Aquino III emphasized the sacrifices made by Jesus Christ for the salvation of humanity, as he joined fellow Christians in observing this year’s Holy Week.

In his Lenten message released on Holy Wednesday, President Aquino said that the love of Christ should serve as an inspiration to everyone so we could all be guided toward a better Christian life.

“Ngayong Semana Santa, ginugunita po natin ang dakilang sakripisyo ng ating Panginoong Hesukristo: ang pag-aalalay ng kanyang buhay para sa kaligtasan ng sangkatauhan.

“Batid po natin ang tindi at bigat ng bawat pagdurusang kanyang pinagdaanan. Humarap siya sa sangandaan: bilang tao, iwinaksi niya ang tukso, at kusang-loob na tinanggap ang bawat parusa't pang-aalipusta,” the President said.

“Like the savior Jesus Christ, each one of us must be prepared to make his own sacrifices for the good of the others, even as we are faced with many obstacles en route to the straight and narrow path.

“Tiyak naman pong lahat ng ating pinaghirapan ay may positibong ambag para sa ikabubuti ng mas nakakarami. At ‘di po ba, napakaliit lamang ng hinihingi sa atin kumpara sa ibinigay ni Hesukristo?” he said in his message.

President Aquino underscored that the values of humility, zealousness, and trustworthiness should be practiced not only every Holy Week but throughout one’s lifetime, as embodied by Jesus Christ.

“Ang ginagawa nating pagninilay at panalangin ay paghahanda lamang para sa isang buong buhay ng pagsunod sa halimbawa ni Kristo. Hangad ko po ang isang makabuluhan at mapayapang Mahal na Araw para sa bawat Pilipino,” the President said. PND (hdc) (full story - 04.16.14)
