In the four successful years of FPJ’s Ang Probinsyano, it has indeed turned our weeknights superbly intense through the action-packed and riveting dramatic scenes it has constantly delivered. But at the same time, its titular character Ricardo “Cardo” Dalisay, impeccably portrayed by Coco Martin, has also inspired us with his admirable attributes that we believe every one of us should brandish.
More than his valour, it is his unwavering faith that we highly regard. Throughout the primetime series’ remarkable run, we’ve seen him converse to God a number of times in every situation that he’s in for it is to Him where he draws his strength from.
Amidst the trials and unfortunate events that they have to go through, such as when he got imprisoned for a crime he didn't commit, Cardo has remained faithful as he made sure to feed his soul with the Word of God while inside the prison.
Most of the time, he prays for his protection and of his family, friends, and colleagues as well, since we all know that his life is always in danger. He asks Him to guide them, to keep them away from harm, and provide them the strength they need as they confront various challenges.
Cardo also expresses his contrition for the mistakes he committed, for his shortcomings, for letting himself be engulfed with wrath and vengeance, and for getting innocent people involved in their battle.
Of course, he didn't forget to also thank God for all the blessings they received, for bestowing them strength, for keeping their family complete, and for the opportunity to serve the country.
However, there were also instances when he questioned Him for allowing mishaps happen to their family despite doing what is good at all times and being truthful to their sworn duty.
As we see in this Kapamilya Toplist, Cardo has set a good example for all of us to make prayer a habit regardless of what we go through in life and that we should not let our faith and hope falter despite of all the challenges.
