Aquino putting an end to 'Herods' in government

AS THE country observes the Holy Week, President Benigno Aquino III said his administration is now putting an end to those who have been acting like “Herods” in government.

In his Lenten message, which was taped earlier and issued on Wednesday, the Chief Executive said the Lord will continue to be his guide in running the government towards a straight path.

"Ipinapaalala ng Semana Santa ang wagas na pagmamahal sa atin ng Diyos, at patuloy na itinuturo sa atin ang landas tungo sa kaligtasan. Sa kaniyang pagsasakatawang-tao: nagsilbi siyang bukal ng pag-asa sa nakakarami,inilayo ang sarili sa tukso, atmag-isang pinasan ang kalbaryokapalit man ay ang kaniyang buhay," he said.

He said in the country's history, many people have also offered their lives to save the Filipinos from misery brought by corruption and poverty.

"Tungkulin natin ngayon na ipagpatuloy ang kanilang sinimulan upang ganap na nating maiwaksi ang baluktot na sistema. Ngayong maliwanag na kakampi na ng taumbayan ang pamahalaan sa pagdudulot ng mga reporma, tinatapos na natin ang paghahari ng mga asal-Herodes sa katungkulan,at pinapanagot ang mga Hudas sa tiwala ng publiko," he stressed.

Aquino urged the Filipinos to continue with their faith and to follow the will of God.

"Tulad ni Kristo, nawa’y maging kaakibat ng ating mga panata at panalangin,ang pagtutok sa kapakanan ng mas nangangailangan. Mananatiling siya ang ating gabay sa pagharap sa mga pagsubok ng tinatahak nating tuwid na landas," he added. (SDR/Sunnex)
