NAGA CITY --- Vice Mayor Nelson S. Legacion of this city received copies of the Bible, written in Bikol, from the Philippine Bible Society in view of the centennial celebration of the translation of the Holy Bible into the dialect of this region and the 115th Foundation Anniversary of PBS as a bible society.

Legacion said the Bibles, given to him on Nov. 26 at the Universidad de Sta. Isabel Auditorium will “serve as the inspiration as well as the reason” why Naga shall continue to strive to make the best better.

“All the systems we have established in the city for the empowerment and in volvement of our constituencies in charting the city’s future are all anchored on the principles of discipleship and servant-leadership shared by Jesus Christ,” Legacion said.

In his speech, the vice mayor thanked the members of the Philippine Bible Society for being reliable partners of the city government in its programs on good and principled governance.

“It is refreshing to have someone as your organization to… remind us about the value of reading again and again the Bible to strengthen further our foundation. Naga, as seen in our practice, is in one with the Philippine Bible Society in dreaming of A Transformed Philippines Through God’s Word,” he said.

Aside from Legacion, prominent personalities like former Chief Justice Reynato Puno, Most Reverend Rolando Tria-Tirona, Archbishop of Caceres, and Most Reverend Arturo Bastes, Archbishop of Sorsogon, also attended the event.
