Cory Aquino, RIP

Maria Corazon 'Cory' Cojuangco Aquino
25 January 1933 – 1 August 2009

President Aquino of the Republic of the Philippines

25 February 1986 - 30 June 1982

With the late Bishop Antonio Y. Fortich of Bacolod

Cory Aquino was a woman who lived her Catholic faith with integrity as a wife, widow, mother, president and citizen. Our eternal flame, our Cory, as the Philippine Daily Inquirer describes her in today's editorial, brought truth and decency back into public life in the Philippines. Sadly, those qualities have largely disappeared again.

As we say in Irish, Ar dheis Dé go raibh a h-anam uasal, 'May her noble soul be at the right hand of God'.

Thank you for sharing Fr. Sean. The Irish blessing that you included is beautiful!
