PHILIPPINE Constitution Association (Philconsa) President Ferdinand Martin Romualdez, a lawyer and former House Independent Bloc Leader and ex-three term Leyte representative, called on all Filipinos to be compassionate and ever willing to help in times of calamity and other challenges faced by their countrymen.
“Let us continue to show ‘malasakit’ (compassion) by contributing in whatever little way we can to help the victims of strong typhoons and other serious concerns facing the nation nowadays. Let us work and think beyond personal interests.
“Our unity has helped a lot for us to be resilient from the numerous tragedies and trials we have faced in the past. Sharing and helping are basically the true meaning of the Christmas season.
“May all of us live in the kindness of God and spread the true meaning of His birth. I wish everyone a Merry Christmas.”
Leyte Rep. Yedda Marie Kittilstvedt Romualdez also shared her Christmas thoughts:
“Sharing and helping are basically the true meaning of the Christmas season. I appeal for a strong sense of unity, and for each of us to think and rise beyond our personal interests. May the glorious and true message of Christmas fill everyone’s heart and mind. Wishing everyone the best this Christmas.”
