November is Filipino Values Month

Proclamation No. 479

In 1992, former President Fidel Ramos saw the need to strengthen Filipinos’ morals such as being pro-God, pro-people, pro-country, and pro-nature. This led to a Moral Recovery Program with Proclamation No. 479 signed on October 7, 1994, which celebrates the month of November as the “Filipino Values Month.”

Four Pillars of Filipino Values Month:

1. Maka-Dios (Godly)
2. Makatao (Humane)
3. Makabayan (Patriotic)
4. Makakalikasan (Pro-Environment)

Filipino values will save the country

Unfortunately, our moral values are eroding. “Mano po” has been replaced by “Bless,” akin to “aguinaldo” thus undermining its true meaning.

In America, they have moral decay because of the lack of respect towards authority. They mock their government with extreme political tolerance.

Left-Liberal Democrats want to get rid of tradition, and disrespect to elders has become common. Filipinos must keep values alive, especially those that respect authority.

Values are important to God.

The most powerful value taught in the Bible is “loving God and others.” With it comes respect, kindness, camaraderie, and integrity.

For example, Filipinos are known for hospitality, “Miski sino, welcome sa bahay. Buong barangay imbitado kapag may piging” (Everyone is welcome in the house, and the whole town is invited to a celebration)

Similarly, our ability to love is demonstrated by our desire to help others in God’s family. Another example is Moses’ values. He tells us to “blind our eyes to petty criticism” (Ex. 16:8, 16-20). In the same way, our Lolo & Lola tells us “Huwag maging balatsibuyas” (Be brave).

Filipino values rooted in Christian morals

Jesus demonstrated for us all the pillars of Biblical values. We can learn a lot from Him as we promote and encourage others to adhere to and practice Filipino Values. In fact, the Philippine currency gives us this attribute.

Ugaling Pinoy na dapat tularan ng kabataan.

Pinoy atheists oppose traditional values

Written on top of the paper currency seal is “Pinagpala ang bayan na ang Diyos ay ang Panginoon (Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord).”

The BSP incorporated an important spiritual dimension in the note in 2010, together with other Filipino values. Naturally, atheists oppose it. This is the reason why Christians must continue promoting “godly values” among young Filipinos. A Luciferian Ideology is at the doorstep of each Filipino home.


Mano Po: Values that respect authority: Values shape the success of a society. Unfortunately, the Philippines has been colonized and influenced by different cultures and Filipinos have lost its identity. Keeping tradition is important, but unless it possesses “godly values,” it will merely be a cultural experience. As a God-fearing nation, moral values shaped our independence.
