In his message, Mayor Rolando "Klarex" Uy emphasized the significance of gratitude and love, citing God's love and sacrifice for mankind.

"Ang gugma nga Iyang gipakita ug gihatag ka nato giya ug sumbanan sa Iyang kasuguan sa paghigugma sa uban sama sa paghigugma sa atong kaugalingon," Uy said.

"Ang pagsaulog sa kapaskuhan sa pagkatao sa batang Hesus kanunay natong masumpay sa hisgutanan sa gasa. Kaning mga gasa timailhan lamang ug simbolo lamang sa pagpaambit sa atong kinabuhi ug mga grasya sa uban. Timailhan kini sa pagpaambit sa uban sa mga butang nga binilhon alang kanato. Timailhan kini sa paghatag ug paghigugma," he added.
