Why We Like Cardinal Sarah

Most probably don't recall, but he was our Dream Team pick for heading up the Congregation for the Evangelization of Peoples.

Tancred has been good on covering His Eminence's awesomeness in the past. See here for an example.

In his latest broadside against the Satanic perspective of modernity, Cardinal Sarah has called the current crisis by its true name. 


"Even among the baptized and the disciples of Christ, there is now a sort of creeping apostasty', a rejection of God and the Christian faith in politics, in business, in the ethical and moral realm and in the post-modern Western culture." These words were submitted by Cardinal Robert Sarah, president of the Pontifical Council Cor Unum, who spoke on Tuesday at a meeting of the Commission of the Bishops' Conferences of the European Community in Trieste on charity.

"We involuntarily breathe in fully teachings, which are against the people, and produce a new politics, which has an effect of erosion, obliteration, destruction and serious aggression, slowly but constant, especially on the person, his life, his family, his work and interpersonal relationships. We do not even have the time to live, love and worship. This is an extraordinary challenge for the Church and the ministry of charity. The Church also speaks out against the various forms of suffering, of which the victims is man," said the cardinal...

For the Church, says the President of Cor Unum, "the Christian values ​​that guide it, and the identity of charitable Church activity are not negotiable. Any ideology that is contrary to the divine teaching is rejected, any economic or cultural support, which is linked to ideological constraints which contradicts the Christian image of humanity is to be rejected," said the cardinal, with a view to international organizations like the United Nations and specialized agencies in the International Monetary Fund, but also the EU, individual government and government-related humanitarian organizations.

How extraordinary to see such brave comments attacking the inhuman and secularized version of "social justice" that is so often promoted as true charity. Especially in light of so many to promote global anti-Christian organizations as the solution to the world's problems.

May God grant His Eminence many years!
