Executive summary: Former Archbishop of Manila

Bishop and later Archbishop of Manila, made a Cardinal in 1976, at the time the youngest of the College of Cardinals. In the pulpit Sin would frequently attack corruption and inequality. He took a dim view of most politicians. In 1986 he supported the "People Power" revolt that toppled Ferdinand Marcos' regime, bringing Corazon Aquino into power. In 2000 he opposed the government of Joseph Ejercito Estrada as corrupt and morally bankrupt; Estrada was forced out of office in a military uprising. In ill health with diabetes and numerous other maladies, Sin retired from office in September 2004, being succeeded as Archbishop by Gaudencio B. Rosales. By the time of Pope John Paul II's death, he was one of only a handful of Cardinals remaining that had not been appointed by that pontiff. In 2005 he died from multiple organ failure at Cardinal Santos Medical Centre in Manila.
