On the eve of Easter Sunday, President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo appealed anew for unity among Filipinos to work towards a common future for the country.
“As we remember the resurrection of Jesus Christ in our hearts today, let us unite as a nation and collectively work toward a new future for our country—a future rich with hope and possibilities for everyone of us, a future illuminated by the blessing of the Lord," she said.
Mrs. Arroyo also urged Filipinos to celebrate and draw hope from Christ’s resurrection on Easter Sunday.
“As we celebrate Easter Sunday, we must reflect on the message in the resurrection of Jesus Christ. May this wonderful story of our Lord’s triumph over death inspire us again with the endless verities of our faith," the President said.
Mrs. Arroyo will end her term as president on June 30.—ACC/JV, GMANews.TV
