Actress and comedienne Ai Ai delas Alas was given a Papal Award for her contributions to the church.
The news was confirmed by well-known lay minister Bo Sanchez on his Instagram page.
According to Sanchez, delas Alas was shocked to receive the special award because she sees herself as a sinner.
“The Vatican investigated her life, her colorful past and failures, but they also saw how Jesus is working in her life, as shown by her selfless work for the poor and the church. God uses broken people. And through our cracks, His light shines. Congratulations Ai!,” wrote Sanchez.
