Message of Senator Loren Legarda on Eid’l Fitr

June 5, 2019

I wish to extend my warm greetings to our Muslim brothers and sisters who have displayed deep faith and devotion, discipline and obedience in observing the holy month of Ramadan.

As a feast of great importance to Muslims, the Eid’l Fitr has become a familiar occasion even to our Catholic-dominated nation. We hope that beyond familiarity, the observance of this holiday would foster deeper understanding among Filipinos regardless of faith or religious belief.

Let us all reflect on the virtues of humility, patience and generosity that Eid’l Fitr signifies.

To our Muslim brothers and sisters, I wish you a joyous and meaningful celebration. Eid Mubarak!
