Jaime Cardinal Sin, RIP

We once before pondered here the irony that Cardinal Law turned out to be a bad guy, papering over the tracks of serial abusers of children in his Boston archdiocese; by contrast, Cardinal Sin was a very good guy, who was instrumental in freeing the Phillippines from the clutches of the Marcos thuggocracy.

Today, Cardinal Sin passed on at age 76. Requiescat in pace.

out of curiousity is it typical to write the name as first name, title, then last name for catholic priests? I'd seen it a few places but assumed it was a typo of some sort but recently I've seen it enough to doubt it's a coincidence.
