We had 2 Girls, 1 Cup, get ready for 2 Popes, 1 Queen.
History was made, yet again, by the Philippine’s Queen of All Media Kris Aquino as she becomes the third Filipino saint, and the first saint who was canonized while still living.
The New Living Saint, which is what people call her to differentiate her from Mother Teresa, was canonized alongside Pope John Paul II, and Pope John XXIII at St. Peter’s Square at the Vatican last April 27, 2014.
Aside from being the first living saint, she is also the first saint who is a product endorser, the first saint who did not go through the beatification process, and the first diva saint.
Aquino’s canonization drew criticism from Catholic hardliners as they say that Aquino did not meet the minimum requirements for sainthood.
This was, however, disproved by the Vatican as they say that Saint Kris Aquino is holy enough and has met the minimum of three miracles to become saint.
The three miracles, according to the Vatican, were as follows:
- Her sacred heart break with Herbert Bautista
- Her haircut, and finally
- Her Maggi Magic Sarap endorsements
Critics have expressed that Aquino’s reportedly third miracle is invalid but the Holy See Press Office said otherwise.
“Saint Kris Aquino’s endorsement of Maggi Magic Sarap is truly remarkable,” their press statement said. “It is miraculous because it is magical and gives life to otherwise bland dinners.”
Pope John Paul II, Pope John XXIII, and Kris Aquino have been officially added to the Litany of the Saints.
With that note,
Pope John Paul II, Pray for us.
Pope John XXIII, Pray for us.
Kris Aquino, Pray for us. Slay mama.
