Of Chinese Filipino descent, Sin was known for his instrumental role in the People Power Revolution , which toppled the regime of President Ferdinand Marcos and installed Corazon Aquino as his successor. Sin died at the age of 76, due to renal complications resulting from diabetes.
The 14th of 16 children, he was a painfully thin, asthmatic child, who often used to cuddle up between his parents to sleep at night. When he asked his nurse why his mother lavished such attention on him, he was told it was because he was the weakest and ugliest of the brood.
On February 29, , he was named Domestic Prelate present-day, honorary prelate with the title of Monsignor. He was appointed auxiliary bishop of Jaro on February 10, ,  and was consecrated bishop of the titular see of Obba on March 18 of that year. On March 15, , Sin was appointed Coadjutor Archbishop of Jaro, taking on administrative roles in the archdiocese, while holding the titular see of Massa Lubrense.
Sin's service as Archbishop of Jaro ended with his appointment on January 21, , to the larger archdiocese seated in the national capital of Manila. Sin was initially reluctant to take on the role of leader of the Catholic Church in the Philippines.
In the August conclave, he reportedly told Albino Luciani , "You will be the new pope. His title and surname as Cardinal Sin another term for a deadly sin were a point of humour in the Philippines and for Filipino Catholics. Examples included "The greatest sin of all: Cardinal Sin," and even his own pun of "Welcome to the house of Sin" that he used to greet guests at Villa San Miguel, the archiepiscopal palace in Mandaluyong.
As a predominantly Catholic country, issues in the Philippines have and are influenced by the Church in varying degrees. Condom usage has historically been a controversial topic. Sin also denounced then- Health Secretary , Juan Flavier , with some asserting that the latter's condom-promotion had made him an unwitting agent of Satan. Events in the Philippines under President Ferdinand Marcos forced Sin, the spiritual leader of Filipino Catholics, to become involved in politics.
He became witness to corruption, fraud, and even murder by the regime and rising popular discontent with the dictatorial rule of Marcos and his wife, Imelda. Beginning in the s, Cardinal Sin, a moderate, was among the leaders who publicly pressured President Marcos to end martial law, out of concern that leftist radicals would overthrow the government.
This led to massive popular demonstrations, often led by nuns whom riot police dared not attack. Some soldiers decided to join the marchers. In what later became known as the People Power Revolution , Marcos, his family, and close advisors were forced to flee the Philippines  and took up residence in Honolulu, Hawaii , upon the invitation of U. President Ronald Reagan. Sin decided to intervene again, in , to become spiritual leader of another People Power Movement.
Some Filipinos alleged that president Joseph Estrada was guilty of widespread corruption and graft because of the controversial "second envelope". Poor people marching in the streets, with the support of Sin, the elite, and military generals, succeeded in toppling Estrada from power and elevating Gloria Macapagal Arroyo as acting president in what was perceived by the international community as a triumphant democracy.
The "second envelope" was opened after the coup and turned out to be Estrada's bank account. Commenting on the endemic corruption that persisted after Marcos, Sin said, "We got rid of Ali Baba, but the 40 thieves remained.
Hours before hundreds of soldiers and officers staged a failed revolt against President Gloria Macapagal Arroyo in July , he urged Filipinos to be vigilant against groups plotting to violently overturn the country's democratic institutions.
Two and a half years after Sin's death, it was reported that at the height of EDSA II, Sin received a directive from the Vatican ordering him and the Philippine clergy to adopt a non-partisan stance towards the political crisis. The reports were attributed to persons reputed to have first-hand knowledge of the events,  but there has been no official confirmation of them from the Vatican or from the Archdiocese of Manila.
Afflicted for years with a kidney ailment brought on by diabetes , he was taken on June 19, , to the Cardinal Rufino Santos Medical Center in San Juan, Metro Manila , because of a slight but lingering fever.
He died of renal failure on June 21, , at the age of 76, two months before his 77th birthday. He was buried beside his three immediate predecessors in the crypt of Manila Cathedral , after a funeral there attended by thousands of Filipinos.
Aside from auxiliary bishops, the following are priests who served as Vicar-General during Sin's term:. Sin also received 26 honorary doctorates in various fields from higher education institutions in the Philippines and abroad mostly from notable universities in the United States of America , among which are the Pontifical and Royal University of Santo Tomas in Manila , Yale University , Georgetown University , Brandeis University and Boston College.
