PNoy’s Aunts blessed by Pope Francis during Malacanang visit.
During the courtesy call and visit of the Pope to Malacanang, two sick aunts of the president were around. The sister of President Cory and a sister of Senator Ninoy were blessed by the Holy Father.
Presidential sister Kris Aquino confirmed the event.
The video posting courtesy of Inquirer confirmed that close relatives of President Benigno S. Aquino were able to “borrow” few moments of Pope Francis’ hectic schedule.
But while it is understandable that somehow “lapses” like this will happen, there is nothing wrong with that.
According to Inquirer’s Kristine Sabillo “… Presidential sister Kris Aquino is teary-eyed after Pope Francis blessed her sick aunts Maria Paz Cojuangco-Teopaco, the sister of the late former President Corazon Aquino, and Maur Aquino-Lichauco, the elder sister of the late Senator Benigno Aquino Jr.
But netizens are hard to please. Among the online comments, were:
6988kid: Pope should have performed an exorcism on Kris.
Jay Barria: So Kris and their families get to have a private audience with the Pope in the comfort of Malacanang.
yondam hokage: it really reflect our society structure, (those) does who are rich has more opportunities in life.
