Nation mourns passing of a religious leader
by Aleli Aggasid-Batara
Laoag City (24 June 2005) -- The death of Jaime Cardinal Sin, a known advocate of national unity, reconciliation and cooperation, should convince our political leaders to temporarily set aside their personal agenda in due deference to the former archbishop and work instead to improve the plight of the poor - who were closest to his heart.

Sin succumbed to multiple organ failure in the early morning of Tuesday at the Cardinal Santos Medical Center in San Juan after his long struggle with diabetes and kidney problem. He was 76 years old.
President Arroyo has declared a week of national mourning for the Catholic leader who was instrumental in the ouster of two Philippine presidents in a bloodless revolution.

The Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas (BSP) has reported that the exchange rate closed today at P55.60 to $1 and the main stock index fell to its lowest in the week.

The continuing negative reaction from the investors and the market is indicative of the adverse impact of the conflict thus the need for the final resolution of the problem.
The House hearing on tape scandal is under way but is going at a slow pace because of the procedural debates between administration and opposition lawmakers.

The deliberation is but natural and is necessary to ensure proper resolution of the problem. What is important is that there is already a proper venue in place and to discuss the matter. (PIA)
Romans 10:9-10
"If you declare with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you profess your faith and are saved."
