PRESIDENT Benigno Aquino III has challenged the Filipinos to be true not only to their words but also in what they do.

This was the President's Lenten message released by Malacanang on Monday.

"Ang hamon nga sa atin bilang mga tagasunod ni Hesukristo: Tumotoo tayo hindi lang sa salita, kung hindi sa gawa. Sa patuloy nating ambagan at pagkakaisa, sa gabay at pagmamahal ng Panginoon, tiyak na pagpapalain tayo ng kinabukasang tunay na makabuluhan sa bawat isa," he said.

Aquino said the public can expect that his administration will continue to follow the straight path.

"Makakaasa po kayo: Sa tuwid na daan, maigting nating sinusulong ang pagtatakwil sa anumang anyo ng katiwalian upang ihatid ang agarang benepisyo sa ating mga kababayan," he said.

"Tinatawag tayong gawin ang lahat ng ating makakaya, upang maipamana ang isang lipunan na inuuna ang interes ng nakakarami bago ang sarili."

He hoped for a peaceful and meaningful Holy Week for everyone. (SDR/Sunnex)
