Corazon C Aquino Mass

A two hour concelebrated mass was held at the Manila Cathedral to honor the life and work of former President Corazon C. Aquino. Bishop Socrates Villegas presided over the mass while Jesuit priest Fr Catalino Arevalo delivers the homily.

After the mass, her coffin draped with the Philippine flag, was placed in a flat bed truck. Tens of thousands of Filipinos lined up the rain-soaked streets to bid farewell to the “Mother of Philippine Democracy”.

The place was filled with yellow colors which symbolizes Pres. Aquino’s “People’s Power”. The people raised their hands with the letter “L” sign meaning “Laban” while chanting “Cory, Cory, Cory”.

Goodbye President Corazon C. Aquino…
You may now rest in peace!!!

Here’s her prayer which appeared on Phil Daily Inquirer:

Prayer for a Happy Death
By Corazon Aquino

Almighty God, most merciful Father
You alone know the time
You alone know the hour
You alone know the moment
When I shall breathe my last.

So, remind me each day,
most loving Father
To be the best that I can be.
To be humble, to be kind,
To be patient, to be true.
To embrace what is good,
To reject what is evil,
To adore only You.

When the final moment does come
Let not my loved ones grieve for long.
Let them comfort each other
And let them know
how much happiness
They brought into my life.
Let them pray for me,
As I will continue to pray for them,
Hoping that they will always pray
for each other.

Let them know that they made possible
Whatever good I offered to our world.
And let them realize that our separation
Is just for a short while
As we prepare for our reunion in eternity.

Our Father in heaven,
You alone are my hope.
You alone are my salvation.
Thank you for your unconditional love, Amen.
