MANILA, Philippines — Vice President Leni Robredo on Easter Sunday, called on Filipinos to follow in Jesus Christ’s footsteps by helping those who are in the margins of society.

Robredo added that Easter Sunday, which marks the Resurrection of Jesus three days after his death by crucifixion, is the “heart of the Gospel,” and the promise of eternal life through obedience to the teachings of Jesus.

“Nawa’y maalala rin natin ang landas na kinakailangang tahakin ni Hesus tungo sa araw na ito: Ang sakripisyo niya, at ang tapang na kinailangan niyang ipamalas para harapin miski ang kamatayan,” said Robredo.

 (May we also remember the path Jesus had to take.  His sacrifice, and the courage he had to face even death.)

“Ang pag-asang binitbit niya para sa sangkatauhan. Nawa’y sundan natin ang kanyang yapak, at isadiwa ang pagiging tunay na Kristiyano– sa pamamagitan ng buong-buong pagbibigay ng sarili, lalo na para sa mga nasa laylayan ng lipunan,” she added.

(May we follow in his footsteps, and celebrate true Christianity-by giving of ourselves wholeheartedly, especially to those on the margins of society.)
