Legacy of Sin
Catholic devotees sign the guestbook at Jaime Cardinal Sin's wake held at the Manila Cathedral
Early Tuesday morning a dearly loved Philippine icon passed away. Jaime Cardinal Sin, 76, succumbed to a long time kidney ailment and suffered sepsis shock much like the one which claimed the life of his dear friend Pope John Paul II.
When Cardinal Sin spoke presidents, listened. When he summoned, people flocked. He was crucial to the Filipino's freedom and was central to the toppling of two presidents.
The Philippine political scene would not be the same without the firebrand known as Sin . . . .
