On the death of Cardinal Sin:

Senator Richard Gordon today expressed grief on the death of former Manila Archbishop Cardinal Sin as he emphasized the great role that the latter has played in bringing back democracy in the Philippines.


“Cardinal Sin’s influence has transcended over the Catholic institution, he has and continues to be a moving force helping provide balance and harmony in our country.  He has given comfort and guidance to our leaders and people during trying times,” the senator said.


According to Gordon, Cardinal Sin has “instilled in Filipinos values and morals that are faithful to the teachings of our Lord through his words, work, and example.”


Gordon added, “Though the church and state are separate, Cardinal Sin has shown how the two should affect each other.  His being outspoken, often misconstrued as interfering, has given conviction to the voice not just of the Catholic community but of the majority of the Filipinos.”


Gordon asked the nation to include in their prayers the repose of the soul of Sin and to continue to be “strong in our faith and carry on the work of a true Christian as what the Cardinal would have wanted all of us to be.”
