CEBU Archbishop Jose Palma encouraged the public Sunday not to be afraid of natural disasters, crisis, poverty, graft and corruption, saying Jesus Christ's resurrection brings new hope and new life.
"Ang pagkabanhaw ni Kristo nagpasalig... ayaw kahadlok. Usa sa Iyang mga mensahe: salig ka sa Diyos, duol ka sa Diyos. Siya sa Iyang pagkabanhaw ang nagdala og bag-ong paglaum, bag-ong kinabuhi (Jesus Christ's resurrection from the dead assures us that there's nothing we should be afraid of. One of his messages is to believe in the Lord and be near Him. He brings new hope, new life in His resurrection)," he said in his Easter message Sunday.
