 From Presidential Spokesperson Ernesto Abella – On Lent
Lent is the Christian retelling of the human themes of sacrifice, love, and hope.

Catholic Filipinos, along with Evangelical and Protestant churches, solemnly commemorate the Lord’s Passion and Resurrection with families, loved ones and local communities.

May it be a time of spiritual renewal to strengthen genuine love and deep compassion for fellow Filipinos; and lead us to renew our unjust social structures – so that many who have been deprived of their dreams can lead rewarding and productive lives.

A quiet and renewing week for all.
