    Vice President Leni Robredo Statement on the passing of His Eminence Ricardo Cardinal Vidal

    18 October 2017

    I join the the Roman Catholic community and all Filipinos in mourning the passing of His Eminence, Ricardo Cardinal Vidal, early this morning.

    Cardinal Vidal was a true shepherd of his flock, providing guidance and calm assurance to our people during some of the most turbulent periods in our nation’s history. He was a peacemaker in times of conflict, and a beacon of courage in times we Filipinos were called upon to stand up for what was just and right.

    He was a leader of faith who embodied some of the finest qualities of that commitment — serenity in the face of turmoil, perseverance in the face of adversity, conviction in the face of oppression.

    Cardinal Vidal will be missed. But his life shall continue to inspire us in our efforts to forge the just, peaceful, and compassionate society he worked tirelessly for.
