Lolo Kiko

Months before Pope Francis set foot in the Philippines, Filipinos had already coined a special nickname for him: Lolo Kiko. 

“Lolo” is the local term for grandfather while “Kiko” is the Filipino nickname for Francisco. 

In simple and grand gestures, Catholics around the country expressed their admiration for the Pope which flourished even further during his visit in January 2015.
