“Like gold that is tested by fire, Cory’s character is tested by tribulation. In every trial that God has sent her, Cory has passed with flying colors. She has exemplified the virtues of peace, reconciliation, and unity in abundant measure,” La Salle Bro. Roly Dizon exulted during the Sunday Mass offered by the La Sallian community for ailing former PresiCorazon Aquino at the National Shrine of the Divine Child at La Salle Greenhills in Mandaluyong City.
The healing Mass and prayers by the La Sallians were said not only for the speedy recovery of Mrs. Aquino, who is suffering from colon cancer, but also for her wish that the 2010 national elections yield “genuine shepherds” who will lead the country with justice and righteousness.
In his sermon, Bro. Dizon said the cancer-stricken former President has become a “genuine shepherd” in her governing the country with “clear values and principles” after the collapse of the Marcos martial law regime.
