A Jesuit priest close to the family of the late President Corazon Aquino to work for her sainthood now that she’s eligible to be beatified, lifestyle editor Joanne Rae Ramirez wrote.

In her Philippine Star column, Ramirez said Fr. Catalino Arevalo sees no problem with starting the beatification process for Cory since she was a person with “extraordinary Christian virtues.”

As per rules of the Catholic Church, beatification can only begin six years after a person’s death. Cory died of colon cancer in August 2009.

“From what I know of Tita Cory, I see no difficulty whatsoever and I think that we should start thinking of the possibility of starting a process ourselves,” Arevalo said.

Ramirez has vouched for Aquino’s exemplary character, saying she had no qualms suffering after she was inspired by the life of St. Francis after a visit to Assisi when her term as president ended.

“When she got back to the hotel, Cory got down on her knees and prayed, ‘Lord, I don’t think I’ll ask for more sufferings. But if more sufferings come my way, I will not complain,’” she said.
