THE PATRON SAINT OF FUTURE LEADERS

Usap-usapan ngayon sa mga chatrooms and even many Catholic circles kung gagawin bang isang santa si Tita Cory. Facebook recently launched the cause Support the Canonization of Cory Aquino. Fr. Joseph Alonzo referred to her as a “living saint” during the novena at Greenbelt. My good friend Bluepanjeet also asked the question, Is Cory Aquino a Candidate for Sainthood?

Marami ang nagsasabi na siya nga ay isang santa. Lalo pa in these times na uhaw sa isang good and moral governance ang ating mahal na Inang Bayan, many look to Tita Cory as “the one.”

Fr. Catalino Arevalo, SJ mentioned that may nakasulat sa likod ng picture na binigay ni Cory sa kanya: “I have crosses and roses. I cannot complain.”

Awww…beautiful!

Here are some of the quotes of Tita Cory I gathered around the net, a testament of her faith…

1. “There is much that women can bring into politics that would make our world a kinder, gentler place for humanity to thrive in.”

2. “As I came to power peacefully, so I shall keep it.”

3. “I would rather die a meaningful death than to live a meaningless life.”

4. “Faith is not simply a patience that passively suffers until the storm is past. Rather, it is a spirit that bears things – with resignations, yes, but above all, with serene, blazing hope.”

5. “I am not embarrased to tell you that I believe in miracles.”

6. “I guess my religious faith sustained me more than anything else.”

7. “It wasn’t until we got over the self pity that we were able to accept suffering sufferign as apart of our life with Christ.  A man or woman reaches this plane when only when he or she ceases to be the hero.”

8. “It’s not just in politics that you can be a servant of the people, you can do it in so many other ways.”

9. “I am not an icon of democracy. You are all, collectively, the icon of democracy.”

10. “I would like to ask the many Filipino people to pray together, to help each other so that we will be able to preserve the democracy we restored 20 years ago.”

God bless you Tita Cory…+

  1. Naisip ko rin nga po if candidate si Tita Cory for sainthood. Every time I look at her I don’t see her as a politician but a statewoman. Not just only a Catholic but a true servant of God. Not just only a holder of a rosary but a believer of the power of rosary.

  2. wow, cant believe it na pwede sya maging saint.
    oo maraming nagawang maganda si tita dito sa ting bansa
    at tinatanaw ko yun na utang na loob sa kanya
    unahin kaya natin na gawing national hero muna

  3. Yan po ang dumadaloy ngayon sa isip ng mga tao. Bakit nga naman hindi?

    Although it is a long process to review and study someone’s life for sainthood.. I wouldn’t object.

    I really believe she is a saint already.

    She was actually proof to a living miracle.. milagro ang mga nangyari sa buhay niya.

  4. ang gara naman ng footer mo, Father. Makulay ang background. Ang saya ng atmosphere 😉

    salamat po pala sa pagdalaw at sa pagkomento sa aking yellow paper crane post 🙂

  5. i think the most important thing is the legacy she left the people. but what is more important now is what the people will do with that legacy.

  6. wow father. ikaw ba ang gaganap kay santino pag laki niya? hehehe

    ako man ay nalungkot din ng mawala si tita cory.

  7. for me she’s one of a kind! 🙂
    mahabang proseseo po un if ever db..
    dadalhin pa sa vatican tas kung anik anik pang
    steps at mabusisisng background study..
    kayo po ba tingin nio pede xa maging saint?

  8. Cory will always be the pamantayan from now on. it will be hard to be like her but I think for those leaders who truly wants to serve, they can try to emulate how cory has served the nation.

  9. wala akong alam kung ano ang mga katangian para maging santo ang isang tao…wala din akong masyadong alam sa naging buhay ni dating President bilang isang naglilingkod sa bayan…

    ang alam ko lang eh ramdam ko ang pagiging isang mabuti nyang asawa..mabuting ina lalo na sa suporta nya kay Kris at sa pagiging malapit nya sa simbahan at kay Fafa J…

    May she rest in peace…

  10. Hindi ba ‘over’ naman kung gawin saint si Cory. I’m a supporter of Cory pero sana naman ilagay natin sa tamang konteksto ang lahat ng bagay. No doubt Cory is a model and has a strong faith in God pero I don’t think that would suffice to make her a saint.

    Alalahanin na lang natin si Cory bilang isang napakabuting ina (despite having a daughter like Krissy), kahanga-hangang presidente at isang mabuting Citizen Cory.

    Wag tayo padadala sa emosyon. Lilipas din yan.

  11. ang daming haters sa blog ko Dre about dyan sa issue na yan haha. Im going to write an extensive post about the process of canonization and the characteristics of Cory that can qualify for sainthood.

    ang daming misconceptions ng tao about the process of canonization. mga nagdudunong-dunungan nakakainis haha. Dinaig pa mga pari at madre sa statements LOL may nagcomment pa dun sa akin na kailanagn daw habang buhay pa si cory may miracle na ginawa kaya daw hindi daw sya pwede maging santo kasi walang himala hahahahahaha Nora Aunor istatue? LOL

    asar talaga OO.

    Salamat sa link dre.

    • kapatid, namiss kita! mas gala na ako ngayon since lumipat ako sa wordpress. ang tagal ko ring pinag-isipan ung suggestion mo noon-noon pa di ba? sige kapatid go! magpost ka ng article about the process ng canonization para maki-link na lang ako…bibisita-bisita ako sa blog mo para updated ako…

  12. Hi po, thanks for dropping by at my site. and for adding me up. i’ll link back with u din. 🙂

    Mdm Cory was really able to set a very good example of living life the right way. her humility, simplicity and faith in God to me are the most noticeable qualities.

  13. father, pasensya na po hindi ako nakapag response sa mga message mo. Kasi this last 2 weeks eh mobile blogging ang ginagawa ko. Hindi ako nagla login sa pc. eh pag mobile ang gamit ko yung msg box eh hindi gumagana. Pasensya na po… =(

  14. it’s an interesting proposition…cory as a saint. but i still don’t know how i feel about it. nagkaroon na ba ng pangulo na naging saint? 🙂

    hi father fiel. hehehe. si deejay to from GTM. *kaway kaway*

  15. iilan lang ang great leader na naka pag electrify sa kanyang mga kababayan at dito sa atin ay naging mag-asawa pa. Sana nga ay mapa bilang si President Cory na maging santa. Hirap mag comment father, Super sikat ang blog mo.

  16. naks naman. kung magiging saint siya eh di siya na ang ikalawang saint ng PINAS kasi di ba una si san lorenzo ruiz… o baka meron ng iba pang naging saint na pinoy… hmmm
