MANILA, Philippines — TV personality and presidential sister Kris Aquino accompanied her brother President Bengino Aquino III to Pope Francis’ final mass at the Quirino Grandstand in Manila on Sunday, January 18. (Watch the footage here.)
Wearing a yellow rain coat, Kris was spotted at the ceremony with sister Pinky, the President, and Kris' sons, Bimby and Josh.
Before attending the mass, Kris posted an Instaquote:
After the mass, Kris shared the photo taken prior to the ceremony.
"Picture was taken before Mass started. I really obeyed when it was announced that no pictures please during Mass," Kris wrote.
"When I was about to take the picture PNoy said, "Instagram na naman?" I said please pagbigyan na ko, super cute naman the 3 of them, and it's a mother's joy to take pics of her sons. And anyway no signal in Luneta, so late upload."
"After the Mass, when Pope Francis was waving from the Popemobile, Bimb said: "Thank You God, this was the best experience ever."
On Friday, January 16, Kris met the Pope for the first time during the Pontiff's Philippine visit during a private moment. She shared the photos on Instagram.
"Doing this RIGHT, sorry ha wala pang tulog, because was so excited last night. ☺️
