Cardinal Sarah is not funny…

Lifted from The National Catholic Reporter

“The Guinea native also appealed to all priests around the world to return to the pre-Vatican II custom of celebrating Mass versus orientem (facing East), or what is often called “priest with his back to the people”.

 

“This is a liturgical hot potato that the 79-year-old Francis had sought to avoid. In fact, he appointed Cardinal Sarah to his current job precisely in order to keep the peace with the neo-Tridentinists — a small, but well-organized, well-funded and extremely vocal group that gained prominence disproportionate to its numbers under Benedict XVI. It has been lukewarm (to say the least!) towards the current pope.”

What He Said: 

Cardinal Sarah – He went as far as to say the dismantling of “the church’s teachings on marriage, sexuality and the human person” through the legalization of such things as same-sex marriage was just as horrible as the “merciless beheadings, futile bombings of churches, torching of orphanages and ruthless expulsions of entire families” that take place in other countries.

If that were not bad enough, Cardinal Sarah has also shown unwillingness to comply with even some of the simplest tasks related to his day job.”

Someone may turn his back on Sarah quite soon…
