MANILA, Philippines —  President Rodrigo Duterte on Easter Sunday called on Filipinos to “have faith in each other” and to “stand brave and united in our journey as a people.”

In his Easter Sunday message, Duterte said Filipinos have remained “strong and resilient” in the challenges they confronted over the past years because “we hold firm to the promise of salvation as professed by Jesus Christ.”

“The fulfillment of the Resurrection of the Lord therefore gives us hope and courage to never falter no matter how overwhelming the odds seemingly are,” said Duterte.

“May this occasion give us much reason to thank the Almighty and have faith -in each other and in the Lord-so that we may stand brave and united in our journey as a people,” he added.
