It’s time to recover and consider one’s mortality: PBBM

In order for the Filipino people to deal with their suffering and pain, President Ferdinand R. Marcos Jr. hopes that they will remember the saints and their deceased loved ones.

Marcos stated that the Covid-19 outbreak had compelled everyone to “come to terms with mortality” in his address on All Saints’ Day and All Souls’ Day.

Given the ambiguity of our time on Earth, it taught us to count our days. It caused us to reflect on what it really meant to lead a meaningful life and to pass away without regrets and in peace, he said on Sunday.

He urged Filipinos to learn lessons that would lead to recovery.

I pray that our efforts to commemorate the saints and our deceased loved ones may bring healing to our hearts as we move closer to full recovery, he said. May it also strengthen the foundations of our faith and inspire us to always act with compassion and love.

Until we see our Creator, both festivals serve as a reminder to “strive, live Christ-centered lives, and achieve our life’s purpose,” according to Marcos.

Pray for the deceased contemporary heroes

Undersecretary Jose Faustino Jr. of the Department of National Defense (DND) urged Filipinos to remember deceased contemporary heroes in their prayers during the Undas celebration.

He wrote on the DND Facebook page on Monday, “Let us also include the modern-day heroes of our nation in our prayers as we mark All Saints’ Day honoring our dearly departed loved ones and friends.”

This includes the military personnel who gave their lives in the line of duty, the frontline responders who died battling the coronavirus pandemic (both medical and non-medical), and the overseas Filipino workers (OFWs) who died while working abroad to support their families.

“In order to continue serving in our different sectors, let’s take care of ourselves. Pangalagaan natin ang ating mga sarili upang maipagpatuloy natin ang ating paglilingkod. Like those who came before us, our legacy is based on the service we provide “Added he.

All Saints’ Day and All Souls’ Day are observed yearly in the primarily Catholic Philippines on November 1 and November 2, respectively.

It’s a holiday on October 31 and November 1.

Only those with a full or partial vaccination record are permitted in cemeteries, memorial parks, and columbaria, according to some local government entities.

Right now, it’s not required to wear a face mask either indoors or outside.

However, face masks will still be required in medical facilities, ambulances, and public transit.
