"Paradoxically, there have been many chatty theologians for many thousands of years, many noisy popes, many presumptuous, self-confident followers of the apostles. But the Church is unshakably established upon Peter, the rock, and Mount Golgotha. "
Robert Cardinal Sarah in his latest book "The Power of Silence: Against a Dictatorship of the Noise," Concept 40.

AMEN. Thank you, Ana.Delete
I have a lot of respect for Cardinal Sarah. However, this is a time of crisis for the Church. It is being torn apart in order to be remade. If he believes his words, then he is unfortunately naïve. The fingerprints of the devil are all over the Vatican in line with a dying statement by Paul VI.ReplyDelete
Sarah will be next to go. It'll be either Guinea again or the Holy Sepulchre. He won't have to pretend that Vatican II ever happened in either of those two appointments.ReplyDelete
He loves Vat II....read his first book.Delete
Please God - free us very soon from Pope Francis. Amen.ReplyDelete

I hope Cardinal Sarah doesn't forget himself the next time he meets the pope and starts off the conversation with "Now! About reintroducing the celebration of Mass ad orientem, Your Noisiness."ReplyDelete
(I am admittedly assuming here that Pope Francis does occasionally come within earshot of the cardinal;that may not actually have happened since the fateful 2013 Conclave).
Does he include himself among the chatty theologians, noisy cardinals and presumptuous self-confident followers of the apostles? Sounds like he should?ReplyDelete
You are certainly all those things, Savonarola.ReplyDelete
The article is not about Savonarola. Non sequitur.ReplyDelete
Francis perfectly illustrates the NO church. It was Benedict who hid the rot behind a thin veneer of orthodoxy.ReplyDelete
