People show love for Cory

MANILA – Tens of thousands of Filipinos, many in tears, lined the streets as the body of former leader Corazon Aquino was moved to the capital's cathedral in an emotional procession yesterday.

The ex-president, whose husband was assassinated by forces loyal to dictator Ferdinand Marcos after returning home from exile in 1983, died of cancer at the weekend and is to be buried on Wednesday.

There has been a massive outpouring of tributes for the woman fondly called Tita, or Auntie, Cory, a grandmotherly figure credited with restoring democracy to the nation.moremoremore

Keep her legacy alive,
priests urge Negrenses

Let’s keep Cory Aquino’s legacy alive, two priests rallied Negrenses yesterday at masses in honor of the former president in Bacolod City.

“Cory beckons us to be God-centered, to be generous in serving our people, to love our country,” Fr. Felix Pasquin said at the mass at the San Sebastian Cathedral.

Fr. Mitch Guadalupe also told those who went to mass at the Negros Occidental Provincial Capitol: “Cory did her part, now it is our turn to continue to keep democracy alive.” moremoremore
