If Cory Aquino Becomes Third Filipino Saint, What Would PNoy, Kris Be Called?

imageQUEZON CITY, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – The Philippines just had its third Miss Universe (Pia Alonzo Wurtzbach). Now the Filipinos may soon have their third saint.  At least that’s what a Jesuit priest close to the Aquino family is hoping for.

Fr. Catalino Arevalo believes that former President Corazon Aquino should be canonized a saint because of her “extraordinary Christian virtues.”

Arevalo says it is time to start the sainthood process for Aquino.  The process starts with beatification which, as per rules of the Roman Catholic Church, can only begin six years after a person’s death. Cory died of colon cancer in August of 2009.

The Aquino family are reportedly excited about the prospect.

If Cory becomes a saint, President NoyNoy can be called, “Anak ng Santa” (Son of a Saint).  Kris Aquino can be called “Santa Santita” (Saint Wannabe).

As for NoyNoy’s three other sisters?  Well, perhaps they can be called “Tres Marias” (Three Mary’s).

Sainthood is oftentimes a long and tedious process.  Among other things, it requires of the sainthood candidate to perform several miracles.

Perhaps one miracle would be that the farmers of the Aquino family’s Hacienda Luisita in Tarlac province will finally own the land they have been tilling for so long.  Land Reform itself is hard to come by in the Philippines.  That would be another miracle!

Kris’ latest public comment about her brother was that newly-crowned Miss Universe Pia Alonzo Wurtzbach ‘didn’t like Noy.’

Shortly after being crowned Miss Philippines-Universe earlier in the year, Kris invited Wurtzbach to her television show and tried to pin her down about the rumored ‘date’ between her and her brother.

“Are you dating my brother?” Kris asked, to which Wurtzbach diplomatically evaded giving a direct answer. Then Kris promised that she would be a nice “sister-in-law” to the beauty queen.

Fast forward to December, 2015.  Wurtzbach won the much-coveted Miss Universe title. Naturally, the gossip circles started re-visiting the supposed “romance” between the president and Wurtzbach.

The president himself refused to give any comment about the new Miss Universe.  But Kris, being Kris, had to bring up the issue (or non-issue) about her brother and Wurtzbach, finally admitting that the beauty queen does not like her brother.

Today, inside sources at Malacanang Palace, told The Adobo Chronicles that an angry and visibly annoyed President Aquino called his sister as she was about to go on the air for her TV show.

The president reportedly screamed at his sister and said that she needs to stop humiliating him. “For once, can you just shut up and mind your own show business,” the president was quoted saying to Kris.

‘I am my own man, and I can win the 2016 presidential elections on my own merit,’ Roxas said.  Since launching his candidacy, Roxas has been riding on the coattails of Aquino, often parroting the administration’s Daang Matuwid (Straight Path) battlecry on anti-government corruption. He has been criticized for always wearing a yellow shirt.

‘From now on, I will rid myself of all vestiges of the Aquino administration, including emptying my closet of all my yellow wardrobe,’ he said.  I will henceforth be the ‘Man in Purple.’

Good for him.
