PRESIDENT Benigno Aquino III likened his administration to Jesus Christ who was initially doubted by some people.

Aquino, in his Easter Message, said he is thankful that even those who doubted his administration before are now joining in the agenda of his government.

"Sa pagbangon ng Panginoon mula sa kamatayan, muling natanglawan ng liwanag ang sangkatauhan. Marami ang namangha at higit na tumibay ang pananampalataya. Gayumpaman, may ilang gaya ni Tomas, ang apostol na hindi naiwaksi ang duda mula sa kanyang puso," he said.

"Gaya po ng landas na piniling tahakin ni Hesukristo, nanindigan at muling bumangon ang ating bayan mula sa malubhang katiwalian at kahirapan. Naibalik na rin ang tiwala ng taumbayan sa pamahalaan. May piring na muli ang katarungan: napaparusahan ang nagkakasala, mayaman man o makapangyarihan," he said.

The President cited the achievements of his administration, such as the improving economy and the provision of more social services to the people.

He also cited the recent signing of the Comprehensive Agreement on the Bangsamoro with the Moro Islamic Liberation Front (MILF), the largest Muslim rebel group in the country.

"Ilan lang po ito sa mabubuting balita ng pagbangon ng ating bayan. Nagpapasalamat po tayo sa mga naniwala, at patuloy na naniniwala, gayundin sa mga nagduda noong una, at ngayon ay nakiki-ambag na sa ating mabuting agenda," Aquino said.

"Asahan po ninyo: sa nalalabing mga taon ng ating termino, lalo pa nating patitibayin ang mga institusyon. Lalo pang dadami ang mga tiwaling mananagot, lalo pang aarangkada ang ating ekonomiya, lalo pang iigting ang ating mga serbisyo, at lalo pang aangat ang antas ng pamumuhay ng ating mga kababayan," he added.

He said that Jesus Christ had undergone many trials. But instead of giving up, he faced all these to give people everlasting life.

"Ito naman ang hamon sa atin bilang kaniyang mga tagasunod: bigyang-halaga natin ang pagkakataong kaloob niya upang maiwaksi ang kasamaan at marating ang kaharian ng Diyos. Sa harap ng mga pagsubok, paghihirap o ginhawa, nawa’y lagi nating isabuhay ang kanyang mga dakilang aral — ang paggawa ng tama, pagmamahal, at paglingap sa kapwa," Aquino said. (SDR/Sunnex)
