Poe: Let’s spread love, not hatred, on Christmas
Senator Grace Poe is encouraging Filipinos to celebrate Christmas with love and compassion for all fellow countrymen, friend or foe.
In her Christmas message, Poe said Filipinos should impart Jesus Christ’s message of love, compassion and hope “without borders.”
“Let’s spread love, not hatred,” the senator said in a statement on Saturday.
“Let us welcome this call by imparting His love and blessings to our fellowmen and women – family, friends, neighbors, critics, and especially to the poor and downtrodden,” she said.
This Christmas season should also serve as an opportunity for Filipinos to reinforce their ties with their shared hopes and aspirations of a progressive future, Poe said.
“Let our faith grow stronger towards justice, reconciliation, peace and compassion. These are the greatest gifts we can give to our fellow Filipinos,” the senator said.
“Let the Christmas season be an outpouring of love and compassion for the families in shelters due to fighting and calamities; for the relatives crying out for justice for their killed kin; for our men in uniform in the field; for our OFWs in faraway places, and for the zestful youth, especially those who make use of social media to make their voices heard,” she said.
