Hinimok ng simbahang Katolika ang mga Pilipino na sulitin ang paggamit sa kapangyarihan ng pag-ibig para makitungo sa kapwa.
Sa kanyang Easter Sunday message sinabi ni Manila Archbishop Luis Antonio Cardinal Tagle na malalim ang kahulugan ng pag-ibig at hindi ito basta natatapos lang sa pagiging salita.
“Love is not just a word, itâ€™s a lifestyle of seeing, encountering and understanding other people,” ani Tagle.
“It is the lifestyle of Jesus, crucified and risen. It is the lifestyle of being with and living for others in the belief that light will always overcome darkness.”
Pinaalalahan din ng arsobispo ang mga Pilipino hinggil sa pagiging mapagkumbaba at matulungin sa kapwa.
“Smallest acts of care and love are crowned by the total self-giving of Christ crucified on the cross.”
“We are called as Christians to encounter others and walk with them humbly, without judgment or pretensions of having the answer to all their problems,” banggit ni Tagle.
“It is through these encounters that our hearts are opened and presented with a new horizon and a renewed energy to move forward. It is through these encounters of love and caring that persons, families and communities are transformed from prisoners of despair into bearers of hope.”
