House Deputy Speaker Beng Climaco has urged the Catholic community in Zamboanga City to seriously engage in prayer and reflection in this season of Lent.

“We appeal to people to pray and also offer prayers for our brethren in Japan”, the District I congresswoman said referring to the victims of the powerful earthquake and tsunami that hit Japan March 11.

She stressed that people in Japan continuously suffer the brunt of the disaster that hit them last  month and are in need of prayers and support of their fellowmen.

On the other hand, in this season of lent, she said, people should thank the Lord for the protection and guidance and all the blessings given to mankind.

“We should have gratitude to God for His death saved us”, she said.
The Holy Week is the culmination of the 40-day lent. The most important events during the week are the Maundy Thursday, Good Friday, Black Saturday and Easter Sunday.

Climaco is set to join her constituents in the city in the observance of various religious activities during the week. — Rham Joseph Cabasag
