"What is good for the Philippines is good for the Filipino."
This is an axiom of our national life
of which there should be no significant departures -
everything good about our Republic
should redound to the common benefit our citizenry!
The spirit of Filipino volunteerism is nourished by this standard.
Mabuhay, Efren Penaflorida
- tunay na bayaning Pilipino -
malapit sa tao, kilala sa mundo!
May God bless you,
O giver of gifts -
and may God bless our Country
with His most gracious peace
through Jesus Christ our Lord.
