Philippine cardinal who fought Marcos' dictatorship dies

Cardinal Vidal Philippnes- RV

In a statement released shortly after Vidal's death, CBCP president Archbishop Socrates Villegas stressed Vidal's legacy will live on despite his passing.

Philippine Cardinal Ricardo Vidal who stood up against the dictatorship of Ferdinand Marcos in 1986 has passed away in a Cebu hospital aged 86.

The country's most senior cardinal was brought to the hospital last October 11 due to fever and shortness of breath but later lost consciousness and remained in coma since then.

Vidal, who was born in Marinduque, was ordained into priesthood on March 17, 1956.

In 1981, he was appointed by the late Pope John Paul II as Coadjutor Archbishop of Cebu before becoming the province's archbishop in less than a year.

Vidal's death leaves the College of Cardinals with 219 members, 120 of whom are younger than the age of 80 and therefore eligible to vote in a conclave to elect a new pope.

Vidal served as archbishop of Cebu for almost three decades before he retired in 2011. Archbishop Villegas also expressed hope in Cardinal Vidal's intercession for the faithful.

"President Rodrigo Duterte and Cardinal Vidal had a friendly, cordial relationship".

Vidal was the oldest of the four cardinals in the Philippines. He who has always shared in the dying and rising of the Lord daily in his priestly life can not die.

"He now joins the immortal ones who served the Lord faithfully here on earth".

"Rest well Eminence. Pray for us in the Father's House", he said. The other cardinals are Manila Archbishop Emeritus Gaudencio Cardinal Rosales, Manila Archbishop Luis Antonio Cardinal Tagle, and Cotabato Archbishop Orlando Cardinal Quevedo.

"For me his legacy is his own outstanding character".
