As scheduled papa already left last Monday and as a tradition I and my mom were the ones to take my dad to the airport.

I was saddened by the death of Cardinal Sin. He died 6:15 am this morning at the Cardinal Santos Medical Center in San Juan, Metro Manila. I first heard his name when I was only a child and I remembered asking my mom, innocently, as to why a sinner became a Cardinal? Because of that curiosity I followed the Cardinals every move at that time. I got the impression that he openly criticized "the current" administration and often reminded all of us that not only should we abide the law of man but most especially take into our hearts the commandments of God. Sin also had a fair share of critics dubbed as the "political-priest" meddling with political matters and walked the fine line between religion and politics but I admire him for speaking up, up holding the Churchs' morals and values and being the Church's strong voice.

"My duty is to put Christ in politics. Politics without Christ is the greatest scourge of our nation," -- Cardinale Sin
