True devotee! Camsur Cong Bordado Jr in Naga to thank “Ina”
Camarines Sur Rep. Gabriel Bordado Jr was in Naga City last weekend to thank God during the feast of the Our Lady of Peñafrancia.
“THANKSGIVING. Salamat po, Ina!” he wrote on Facebook. The lawmaker also posted a photo of him and his wife Georgina during the procession last Saturday.
Bordado called the Peñafrancia the mother of all seasons.
In a post Monday, the lawmaker also quoted Victor Dennis Tino Nierva’s English translation of Himno to explain the devotion of thousands of Filipinos to the Our Lady of Peñafrancia : “The poor and the burdened seek you with faith. They gaze at you with tears and you look at them too. Your own tears blend with theirs and they returned filled with joy.”
Ooh. That explains why you have the heart for the poor and the defenseless. Keep seeking.
Bordado Jr is one of the 32 lawmakers who voted against the P1000 budget for the Commission on Human Rights.
