Cardinal Sarah Condemns the Whole Bunch of Bishops

It's an “absurdity” to put Holy Communion in a take-away bag, as done in Switzerland and Germany, Cardinal Robert Sarah told LaNuovaBq.it (May 2).

Sarah reminded that Christ is a person, “Nobody welcomes the person he loves in a bag or otherwise in an unworthy way.”

“The response to the privation of the Eucharist cannot be desecration,” Sarah explained.

He implicitly condemned almost all bishops by stating that “nobody can prevent a priest from confessing and giving communion, nobody has the right to stop him.”

He added that the Church cannot go on with live-streamed Masses because this is “highly misleading" for priests because "in Mass the priest has to look at God [while facing the people?], instead he is getting used to looking at the camera, as if it were a show.”

"An intelligent politician..." that's very sad. Why doesn't Sarah rebuke Francis like St. Paul rebuked St. Peter? Catholics correct their brothers in error. Even if they are their superiors. Francis is not above God. Those that remain silent confirm them in error and that error is leading billions of souls to hell. He and the other bishops will have to answer for that on judgement day.

To answer your questions in order mattsixteen24 r:

"Implicitly? Is that true?"

Yes, it is. When a person makes a criticism that applies specifically to exactly one group's actions, without directly naming that group, it is an implied (yet very clear) criticism of them. If I point out hijacking other people's posts is wrong, you know whom I'm referring to. ;-)

"How do we know that?"

We …More

"How do we know that?"

We know it by looking at what Cardinal Sarah says and to whom his remarks apply. I'm using "we" in reference to those of us who don't need these things explained to them, such as yourself.

"Why wasn't he explicit? Condemning bishops is a very serious matter."

You just answered your own question. Cardinal Sarah is being diplomatic.

"Why not be explicit?"

...because he isn't a loud-mouthed Texan. This is how intelligent people fight. Cardinal Sarah is an accomplished politician. He recognizes, very soon, he may have to work with some of these bishops if they are appointed Cardinals.

Even now, he has to work with his fellow Cardinals some of which are probably sympathetic to those bishops. By criticizing the policy directly without naming names, he doesn't publicly shame these men but they get message all the same.

The Absurdity of looking at the camera or empty church is the Novus Ordo.
The Catholic Priest celebrating The Catholic Mass (Traditional Latin Mass) gets to look at God, Adore God, Offer God, etc.
Still.
OPEN OUR CHURCHES!

It is blasphemy to blame God for universal hoax created by Chinese state serving the devil himself. Unfortunately, following MSM pressure most states have voluntarily entered into the area of the devil's playground of viral deception and fear, as most governments also serve him not Almighty Triune God.

Germans...once they decide to latch on to a theory or liberal theology in this case, they stubbornly resist to the bitter end. ( I know, I'm only half German but have witnessed it in my own family), lol.

@philosopher, so very true.

Sarah also in this interview: "Unfortunately, many things are done in Germany that are not Catholic, but that doesn't mean you have to imitate them."
HerzMariae
Sarah on October 7th 2019 : “The truth is that the Church is represented on earth by the Vicar of Christ, that is by the Pope. And whoever is against the Pope is, ipso facto, outside the Church.”

Then Francis threw away the title "Vicar of Christ"
