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!

NEW YORK, New York (The Adobo Chronicles) – According to the Christian faith, every human being born in this world is born a sinner, and in the Roman Catholic Church, it takes a miracle to be canonized a saint in a long and tedious process.

But Kim Kardashian and Kanye West defy dogma and centuries-old tradition by the birth of their second child, Saint. No need for baptism and no need for canonization for the baby boy.

Their first child, North, now 2 years old, seemed to have prepared the way for Saint’s birth. A biblical north star from the west, so to speak.

Congratulations to the proud parents. They are truly blessed.

We all look forward to following Saint as he leads a holy life in this troubled world of ours.
