Cory's Funeral Cortege Now Approaching Manila Cathedral — Democracy's Enduring Icon Gets a Rousing Welcome in Ayala Avenue, Makati

3 August 2009 1:46pm

The funeral cortege bearing the remains of President Cory is approaching Manila Cathedral from a rousing welcome in Ayala Avenue, Makati after moving out of the De La Salle Greenhills stadium at past 11am this morning.

Tens of thousands of people lined the streets to show their love and respect for the late president as the convoy wound its way slowly through Ortigas, EDSA, Ayala Avenue, Buendia, South Superhighway, Quirino Avenue, Roxas Boulevard, Rizal Park and on to the Intramuros area where the Manila Cathedral is located.  As I write (1:59pm), the cortege is most probably approaching Roxas Boulevard.

The funeral cortege bearing the mortal remains of President Cory reached Manila Cathedral just before 4pm.  

ABS-CBN has momentarily ended its coverage but ANC is still covering it live. Bishop Soc Villegas offered some words to welcome President Cory's remains. 

The crowd is awaiting the start of the mass which will most probably be officiated by Bishop Soc Villegas.



  1. President Cory, like your husband Ninoy, You couple are one of a kind.Hindi kayo dapat makalimutan nang sambayanang Filipino. I was there in EDSA 1986 and I could still feel the Filipino's hunger for true democracy. My prayers are with you and the entire Philippines. God save our country!!! BONG from Bicolandia
