Cardinal Sarah in Cappa Magna. False?

Update: so it isn't +++Sarah? I'm astonished no one has photographed him saying Mass, or published it. We'll see.

Edit: it is hoped that with this election, there will be much wailing and gnashing of teeth among the bad vestments and liturgical abuse gang.

Could this be Cardinal Arrinze^2?

Keep you friends close but your enemies closer. Pope Francis wants to neutralize Napier & Sarah by appointing them to high positions so they will not be so quick to criticize. With Burke out, Africa neutralized and Muller on his way out, chances are improving for the demolition of Church teaching for the Synod in 2015.

Yes, I believe you. Pope Francis is such a devious, and I believe genuinely evil man (after all, he's a Jesuit), that he would think as you describe.

This posting asks the questions of a "Cardinal Arinze #2". Just so you know, Cardinal Arinze was 100% Vatican II. He had no real objection to Piero Marini....and he was very cold towards Catholic tradition and the Tridentine Latin Mass.

Yep, I know.

What a beautiful color that cappa magna is! A shade of purple. That's the cappa magna for bishops, not a cardinal. So that photo is alittle dated.
But it's a beautiful color.
Considering how magnificent it is, it is pathetic that nearly all bishops would refuse to wear it.
I did alittle research. Bishops have purple cappa magna, cardinals have red. But a few hundred years ago (300 or so), the Pope had one too. His was also red. I wonder what it looked like!

Arrinze has my esteem because he put the smack down on that old rummy, Archbishop Flynn.

That is not Cardinal Sarah

Tancred said...

No! Don't say that!

So if the Pope deposes a traditional Cardinal, it's because he has bad motives. And if the Pope appoints a traditional Cardinal to a high-ranking position, it's also because he has bad motives.

There's really nothing that the Pope could do to squeeze a compliment out of you, huh?

QqSarah was promoted in order to free Maradiaga from his attentive supervision.

Sometimes, if you hear the idiocy coming out of traditionalists, people with good sense like Cardinal Arinze will have reason to be cold to traditionalists.

If I were a cardinal, I would not like to be associated with people who calls Vatican 2 evil, when even SSPX claim that they are more faithful to Vatican 2 than the Novus Ordo crowds. Who wants to be identified with an exclusionary fringe?

Tancred said...

Well, Arrinze has said some idiotic things, but that doesn't stop useful idiots from complaining about and attacking people who point it out. Especially the paid ones, they're truly the lowest of the low, right down there with Judas.

Tancred said...

Thanks much, I think I even linked to this photo two years ago.

The Birettta has a tuft on the top. Cardinals Biretta does not.

je ne crois pas, le cardinal Sarah n'est pas un cardinal d'opérette, qui attend des breloques et de la verroterie, pour se taire : lisez son ouvrage : Dieu ou Rien

It's okay. They all look alike anyway.
