In the news: Will the Arroyos have a bona fide saint in the family by next year?

It came as a surprise. An Arroyo will become a saint. Gosh I never know that sainthood runs in the Arroyos blood amidst the charges of corruptions, etc..etc..

Not that I’m a rabid Arroyo critic and I’m not saying there really such a things as “saints”, but with all that deluge the next news I heard is sainthood?

The news is about the beatification of Mother Rosario Arroyo dela Visitacion, the founder of the Beaterio de Molo and the Congregation of the Dominican Sisters of the Most Holy Rosary. According to an official Palace statement, several persons claimed to receive favors from God through the intercession of Mother Rosario, even after her death.

Yeah right.

If miracles are true, Pres. Arroyo sure needs it to boost back the confidence of a lot of Filipino and I think she will need more of this “divine intercession” from Big Mike’s great grandma.
