Francis Accepts Cardinal Sarah's Resignation

Francis has accepted the resignation of Cardinal Robert Sarah, 75, as prefect of the Congregation for Divine Worship.

A successor has not been named. Sarah turned 75 in June. There are several prelates at the Curia who would have needed to be retired before Sarah: Stella, 79 (Curia), Ravasi, 78 (Culture); Ferrer, 76 (Faith); Sandri, 77 (Oriental Churches); Versaldi, 77 (Education), Ouellet, 76 (Bishops); Piacenza, 76 (Apostolic Penitentiary) - but these are almost all blind Francis followers.

Sarah wrote on Twitter.com: “I am in God's hands. The only rock is Christ. We will meet again very soon in Rome and elsewhere.”

Further, Francis accepted the resignation of Cardinal Angelo Comastri, 77, as vicar general for the Vatican City and Archpriest of St. Peter’s basilica. His successor is neo-Cardinal Mauro Gambetti, Francis altar-boy in Assisi.

Does it matter these days @Tesa? Cardinal "In The Hand Or Not At All" Sarah proved no friend to traditional Catholic practices.

The ‘Daily Fail’ paper has clearly made a meal out of it. Sarah Resigned because he’d reached retirement age. Not because he clashed with the Pope. Sarah was an ineffective useless prelate. Who accomplished nothing. I was present at his address in London where he called for ‘ad orientem’ worship in the NO and was promptly slapped down first by Cardinal Vincent Nichols (in who’s diocese Sarah …More
The ‘Daily Fail’ paper has clearly made a meal out of it. Sarah Resigned because he’d reached retirement age. Not because he clashed with the Pope. Sarah was an ineffective useless prelate. Who accomplished nothing. I was present at his address in London where he called for ‘ad orientem’ worship in the NO and was promptly slapped down first by Cardinal Vincent Nichols (in who’s diocese Sarah made that call), and then by the Pope himself. He took it in silence.

Will the job go to the secretary, Archbishop Arthur Roche? An enemy of Summorum Pontificum.
Marcos Calzada Sandoval
No, Tesa. His sucessor will be Vittorio Viola, bishop of Tortona in Italy.

Sad day for the Church.
Cuthbert Mayne
Why?

"the Catholic Church only exists in books." -thus speaks theological ignorance.

Cardinal Sarah has always been a faithful son of the Church, a truly holy man, who has frequently been the target of unmerited attacks from the progressive elements in the Church
