A Not-so-Shocking Discovery

Days after the royal wedding brouhaha, the deceased Pope John Paul II was beatified, he is now known as the Blessed John Paul. I was one of the millions who watched and followed his beatification, I never claimed to be religious, but I just can't let it pass without being a witness to it, right? It's like one of those special moments that only happens once or twice in a lifetime.

In my case, I think, I witnessed four or more beatification in my lifetime, I remember that of St. Lorenzo Ruiz when I was just a child, that of Blessed Pedro Calungsod on 2000, that of Mother Teresa a few years ago and now of Blessed John Paul II. There might have been more that I am unaware of.

Of the four that I have mentioned two are of my race and ethnicity - St. Lorenzo Ruiz and Blessed Pedro Calungsod, the first one is a Tagalog and the second is a Cebuano.

But as I looked around the net on the topic of beatification, I chanced upon an article about a petition to beatify Felipe Sonsong, another Pinoy, a native of Pampanga, this time. I had no idea, as in totally, but knowing it just makes me swell with pride, don't ask me why, I don't know either, hahaha.
