THE Diplomatic Corps of the Philippines on Friday committed to help the Philippines rebuild from the ruins left by calamities that befell the country last year. 

Papal Nuncio Archbishop Giuseppe Pinto, the dean of the Diplomatic Corps, said the whole world wishes to console and to help Filipinos recover from the tragedies.

"The Diplomatic Corps sincerely vows to help in rebuilding something that is even better than what was destroyed," Pinto said in his toast at the annual Vin d'Honneur at Malacañang Palace.

Also, the Papal Nuncio proposed a toast to a New Year of "peace and greater prosperity" for the Filipino people and for the well-being of President Benigno Aquino III.

He lamented the events of the last few months, including the magnitude-7.2 quake last October that hit Central Visayas, including Bohol - known for its historic churches.
The Papal Nuncio likewise noted the devastation brought by super typhoon "Yolanda" (Haiyan) last November.

Yet, he said this was where the Filipino people showed their strength.

"When faced with this tragedy, the Filipino people reacted with the strength of their character and their faith. Victims and rescuers became members of the same family. The whole world wished to help, to console, to rebuild. And just as in previous calamities, you Mr. President, paved the way for local and international solidarity," he said.

On the other hand, the Papal Nuncio cited the signing between the Philippine government and the Moro Islamic Liberation Front of the annex on power sharing of the Framework Agreement on Bangsamoro also gives new hope.

"This is the work of peace. Peace is the essential infrastructure that permits us to build even in the midst of ruin, or better still, from the ruin, It illuminates the path towards the realization or legitimate aspirations of a nation," he said.

"May God grant his abundant blessings on this New Year 2014. Manigong Bagong Taon. Mabuhay!" he added. (PND)
