MANILA, Philippines — In his message for the observance of Eid’l Adha, President Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos Jr. expressed hopes that Filipinos will “transcend our differences, break the chains of divisiveness, and emerge strong and united as one nation.”

Marcos said he joins the Muslim community in observing Eid’l Adha or the Feast of the Sacrifice.

The President said that Eid’l Adha is a reminder that “with deep faith and loyalty to our virtues, we can take risks for hefty costs, even if it means losing those whom we love and letting go of many things that matter to us.”

“The solemn narrative that punctuates this occasion tells us that, at the onset of this administration, we must prepare ourselves to go beyond our comfort zones as we walk the path we have willingly chosen,” Marcos said in a statement.

“The journey ahead of us will not be easy, but if we fight for what is right and predicate our very action on our love for our fellowmen and women, our people will surely benefit from the results of our individual choices,” he added.

Marcos then urged the public to “offer ourselves for the sake of others and take to heart the lessons we learn today so that we may be rewarded spiritually and become worthy recipients of Allah’s manifold blessings and protection.”

“As we join hands towards achieving our shared goals, I hope that we will transcend our differences, break the chains of divisiveness, and emerge strong and united as one nation,” Marcos said.

The Palace earlier declared July 9, Saturday, a regular holiday in the country in observance of Eid’l Adha.
