Senator Francis Pangilinan has revealed that he was very sickly as a child as he honored his mom who took care of him and taught him how to pray.

On Mother’s Day, May 9, Pangilinan, husband of Sharon Cuneta, also thanked his mom for her efforts to educate him and his siblings.  

On Instagram, Kiko wrote:  

“Happy Mother’s Day, Mommy!

“As a child I was very sickly. Mommy ko ang nagaalaga sa akin kapag inaatake ng ubo’t sipon at at nagdedelirio sa sobrang taas ng lagnat. Punas dito, paginom ng gamot at pag check ng lagnat. Kapag siyam kayong magkakapatid, napaka laking bagay yung dagdag na alaga na yun. Kahit saglit, solo ko ang atensyon ni Mommy.

“Si Mommy ko rin ang nagturo sa akin na maging malapit kay Jesus, laging manalangin at magsindi ng kandila habang nananalangin sa Dios.

“Nung mga 6 years old ako at dahil sa mga kwento ni Mommy tungkol sa mga Santo, nangarap akong maging isang Santo tulad ng mga Santo sa kwento ni Mommy. Dalawang araw akong nagpakabait, nagdasal umaga hapon at gabi, binasa ang mga libro tungkol sa mga Santo lalo na yung librong Marcelino Pan y Vino, naging matulungin sa pagaayos sa bahay, umiwas na magalit at laging kumilos ng mahinahon at mahinahon din magsalita sa mga kapatid at mga kasama sa bahay. I tried my best to be saintly, to be kind, loving, helpful, prayerful. After 2 days, nag give up na ako. Mahirap pala magpaka banal. 2 days lang hindi ko kinaya.

“THANK YOU Mommy for your amazing sacrifice and tireless, relentless efforts in educating us, raising all of us to be God fearing, prayerful 9 kids. I love you Mommy. HAPPY MOTHER’S DAY!”
