(Final Text) INVOCATION
(103rd Anniversary of the Philippine Independence. Given by (Fr.) Raymond T. Sabio, MSC during the Philippine Embassy Reception held at Westin Chosun Hotel, Seoul, Korea)
Heavenly Father, You are the source of all life, goodness and wisdom. We beseech You to grant our Filipino People your grace of love and mercy, as we call to mind the 103rd Anniversary Commemoration of our Philippine Independence. May our Filipino People learn from the experience of Your own Chosen People, the sons and daughters of Israel as they journeyed for a good number of years from the Land of Bondage to the Promised Land: precisely, that the forging of a people to one nation, takes a good number of years; . . . as well as tons of patience, sacrifice and tears. May the great trials and suffering, our people experienced in the past 20 or so years be our counterpart of the Good Friday experience of Christ; or of that Great Passover of the Israelites, from darkness to light; from dis-unity to unity; from bondage to freedom; from humiliating defeat to glorious victory. Providentially, we thank you Lord, for having enabled our Filipino People, to gift the world, specifically Asia, with two phenomenal realities: 1st: that women can be chief executives, just as good, if not better than their male counterparts; secondly, that the "kratia" of the "demos", or simply, the "Power of the People" has the potentiality to change the course of history.
Help us Lord, to look at this turbulent unfolding of events in our native land in a positive light, knowing fully well, that every country, rich or poor, every nation and people have to pass through this crucible of heart-rending purification and spiritual renewal, in order to attain unity and progress, and eventually prosperity. We believe Lord, that you are one with us along the way, as we continue to offer You this prayer of hope, cherished by our people. "No mas amor que el Tuyo; O Corazon Divino. El pueblo Filipino, Te da su corazon." May we not lose heart in this difficult pilgrimage of life, more so during this time of trials; but with profound faith, hope and courage, convince ourselves that as we go through the authentic reform and renewal of our people and government leaders, indeed, the tears, fears and worries of today, will bring us joy, fulfillment and smiles tomorrow, as we look forward to the dawning of a new day in our beloved native land, our very own "patria adorada," our one and only "lupang hinirang." In the course of our life, may we take to heart the great advise of St. Paul in his Letter to the Thessalonians on how we should live. He wrote: "Be joyful always; pray at all times; be thankful in all circumstances. This, is what God wants from you in your life, in union with Christ Jesus." (1 Thess. 5: 16-18). May this admonition be our Filipino People's wellspring: of inspiration, hope and guiding light, that could possibly propel us to unprecedented height, in the days and years to come. Amen.

INVOCATION
(FCAK Celebration of the 103rd Anniversary of the Philippine Independence held at Capital Hotel, Seoul, Korea)

Almighty and ever loving God, guide us through the challenges of life, and inspire us with your love, guide us with your wisdom and strengthen us with your grace. May we grow strong and courageous in face of adversities and tribulations that beset our native land.
As we commemorate the 103rd Anniversary of our Philippine Independence, may we become aware of the great importance of faith and freedom; and with one heart and mind, may our people and our government leaders exert a concerted patriotic effort to uplift the quality of life out of pure, sincere and heroic love for our native land, our very own "patria adorada."
May our People not get discouraged by the seemingly insurmountable problems, failures and tribulations present these days. Rather, with faith in Your Divine Providence, may our People's hearts and will, grow stronger and more determined to do their best in the face of great trials and catastrophies; for we know Lord, that it is through the way of the Cross that we will attain victory and glorious success. This, O Lord, is Your Way. May this be also Our Way!
Finally, Heavenly Father, help all Filipinos, at home and abroad to grow in the knowledge of Your peace, love, liberty, service and justice. For it is through the promotion of these that our nation, our people could find meaning and value in their being true Filipinos. Accompany us Lord, along the rough roads we travel, and may we always derive strength and determination from the bounty of your loving Heart. Amen.
