The Chief Justice was serene when asked about the chief executive’s statements critical of the court; the Vice President had unsolicited advice for his boss; and a former president said the SONA lacked the kind of vision that went into building a nation over the long term.

Still, most lawmakers allied with the President were expectedly supportive of his fifth State of the Nation Address (SONA).

Senate President Franklin Drilon said President Aquino has put a face to the progress achieved by the administration on policies enforced, and economic gains.

Chief Justice Maria Lourdes Sereno, asked in an ambush interview how she felt about the President Aquino’s recent statements seemingly castigating the Supreme Court after its 13-0 ruling that deemed unconstitutional his Disbursement Acceleration Program (DAP). Her reply: "You can’t have an emotional court. ....we have professional duties."

Vice President Jejomar Binay, singled out by Mr. Aquino as "someone who knows what we’ve been through," was asked what he thought of the President’s reference to the 2016 polls, where Aquino said people must elect someone who will doubtless be committed to continue the reforms he began.

The San Sebastian Cathedral Parish will conduct a Prayer Vigil for Integrity, Accountability and Transparency in Public Service today July 28, 2014 (Monday) after the 6PM Mass. The Prayer Vigil aims to raise the awareness of the faithful for the need of authentic public service that is marked with integrity, accountability and transparency, not with cover-ups, corruption and self-serving agenda.

In the context of the present issues on the Priority Development Assistance Fund (PDAF) and the Disbursement Acceleration Program (DAP), the faithfuls are looking for the truth. The Prayer Vigil is an expression of condemnation of the perceived partiality and "partisanship" in the investigation and that of corruption as a whole. At the same time, it is a movement for hope that through the guidance of the Holy Spirit our government officials will pursue the common good of the Filipino people.

During the Prayer Vigil, there will be short talks on the "Three Branches of the Government and DAP," "Issues on DAP" and "Integrity, Accountability and Transparency in the Biblical Perspective" followed by the exposition of the Blessed Sacrament.
