Vice President Ma. Leonor “Leni” G. Robredo enjoined yesterday the Filipino people to become “agents of joy and peace” for the greater good of the country.
“Let us be guided by His sacrifice and grace – choosing to be agents of joy and peace instead of hate and contempt,” Robredo said in her first Easter Sunday message to Filipinos as Vice President.
“My family and I join our fellow Christians in celebrating Easter Sunday,” she said.
She noted the message of the Risen Christ on Easter Sunday is “one of hope and courage.”
“May we all be reminded that the grace we receive from him is not for us alone, but a gift we must share with others,” Robredo said.
The Vice President went on a vacation with her three children-Aika, Tricia and Jillian-during the Holy Week break in South Korea.
She was expected to depart fly back to Manila yesterday.
