Senator Bam Aquino is extraordinarily fortunate after receiving a blessing from Pope Francis on the Vatican’s VIP line.
Aquino has a detailed encounter with the Pope in St. Peter’s Square throughout the pontiff’s weekly normal viewers, shaking fingers with the charismatic spiritual chief.
“As I humbly asked Pope Francis to pray for our country, his message of mercy & compassion during his last visit to the Philippines filled my heart. His message today to the thousands in the audience: Be ready to fight & experience hardships for your faith. Have hope. God’s love will always endure,” Aquino wrote on Facebook.
