Don’t complain about hunger! If Jesus could fast for 40 days, so could you, says San Fernando Mayor Fermin Mabulo
San Fernando Mayor Fermin Mabulo is addressing people’s fear of hunger during the Luzon-wide quarantine by reminded them that Jesus Christ fasted for 40 days and 40 nights.
Because of this, Mabulo said people have no right to complain of hunger.
He also said those who are not prepared have themselves to blame because of their choices in life.
He has friends who could fast for 40 days, taking only liquids and meditating during this time, he said.
Mabulo also said he could only do so much with the available resources, which would be used to help those who need it most.
He directed barangay officials to exhaust their funds to help the people of the town.
He assured his constituents that he is doing his best.
But don’t complain about hunger!
“Jesus fasted for 40 days and 40 nights enough time for the virus to be contained. We have no right to complain of hunger. If you’re not prepared for this phenomenon its because of your choices in life. My friends in Cebu who are devotees of Sto Niño in Punta Engaño do this practice of 40 days fast with no food intake at all only liquids and prayer meditation. If they can do it, so can we.
As public officials we can only do so much with our available resources to be able to help those in dire needs. Please bear with us. Rest assured that we are doing our very best.
I have instructed our brgy officials to exhaust all their available funds to provide for our constituents,” Mabulo posted.
