Civil Service Commission (CSC) Chairperson Karlo Nograles hopes for a peaceful and meaningful Lent as the nation prepares to observe Holy Week.

In his Lenten address, Chairperson Nograles urged the 1.9 million workers of the government to reflect on the life dedicated to public service.

“We have chosen one of the most profound demonstrations of love, and how work every single day is a reflection of our love of God and country,” he said.

“Ang pagpapakita ng katapatan at kahusayan sa serbisyo publiko ay sumasalamin ng pagsasabuhay ng mga turo sa pagiging isang mabuting Kristiyano at anak ng Diyos,” he added.

Chairperson Nograles called on civil servants to exhibit greater resilience in overcoming challenges, show increased compassion in times of hardship, and demonstrate heightened dedication in striving for a brighter future for all Filipinos.

This effort reflects on the love and graces of God that have been given to all.

“On behalf of the CSC, a safe, peaceful and meaningful Lent to all. Mabuhay kayo at mabuhay ang serbisyo publiko,” he concluded.
