Bago ang lahat, ako at ang aking pamilya ay bumabati sa lahat ng Manigong Bagong Taon at isang Masaganang 2011 sa lahat.
The statement “to die oneself” must of course not be taken literally but figuratively.
In the Christian perspective it means to put behind all the sinful things and to start life anew. It means to be dead to sin and be alive in Christ.
As a new century unfolds, let us continue our pursuit in fulfilling our God-given mission, to spread love and be a channel of peace. May our new "New Year's Resolution" is to remain our old selves "dead."
The year 2010 was a year full of storms and tragedies in our lives individually and collectively as a nation. Yet with our fortitude and faith we managed to endure.
And here we are once again, welcoming a new challenge 2011 will dish up on us.
May the God that carried us through in 2010 may once again show off his power and prove his might on 2011.
Happy New Year and may all our old selves pass away
Often recalcitrant, but always principled.
