Sen. Joel Villanueva's statement on the passing of Cardinal Vidal

This morning, our Father God in heaven called home His Eminence Cebu Archbishop Emeritus Ricardo Cardinal Vidal. Throughout his life, Cardinal Vidal encouraged others to be compassionate. His legacy will be forever carried on through the lives of those he influenced.

Cardinal Vidal served as archbishop of Cebu for 29 years before retiring in 2011 and had a positive impact in the lives of our people.

In our political journey, Cardinal Vidal served as one of our spiritual counsels. He actively supported and prayed for us, especially throughout the campaign.

We extend our heartfelt condolences to the family and friends of Cardinal Vidal and millions of Catholics who are mourning the loss of an esteemed servant of God.

You will be profoundly missed, Cardinal Vidal.
