  • Ratzinger to Fumone. Burke to Campo De' Fiori. Someone is 'getting bent out of shape'

    Rorate Caeli ^ | May 20, 2017 | Marco Tosatti
    Reading three news articles yesterday makes me think that someone is really “getting bent out of shape” and we are entering now a perilous phase of decline: those who don’t agree with the boss – off with their heads! An unprecedented populist degeneration in the life of the modern Church. I sincerely hope I’m wrong: I’m not just saying this, I really hope so. However we have signs that are anything but comforting. The crux of the matter, it seems to me, is once again the Pope’s non-response (a year has now gone by) to the five questions asked by...

    Reduced to powerless isolation at the Congregation for Divine Worship and the Discipline of the Sacraments (CDW) after Pope Bergoglio sacked all its members and replaced them with a passel of reliable liturgical progressives, Cardinal Robert Sarah has not refrained from commenting publicly on the disastrous impact of the Bergoglian agenda. The Cardinal does not identify its principal author, but at this point in the Bergoglian tumult anyone who is paying attention to the situation in the Church knows of whom he speaks. The world certainly knows, and it lavishes Pope Bergoglio with endless praise, including flattering magazine covers. Touching...

    Fast forward to my 38th birthday. I was still single, and the world of dating had changed significantly in the last eight years. Tinder and Bumble, the dominant dating apps, offered countless options for single men and women, but made the experience of dating entirely impersonal. Dating amounted to small talk with a stranger, who you had briefly interfaced with online because you each thought the other attractive. The small talk was a prelude to hooking up, and there were no expectations even of a text the next day. It was brutal. And after trying my hand at it, I...
  • Church is ‘gravely mistaken’ if she thinks migration is her real mission: Cardinal Sarah [Cath Cauc]

    The Church would ignore the "real crisis" she faces today if she focuses on social justice issues rather than her basic mission to evangelize, Cardinal Robert Sarah warns in a newly-published interview. “The Church is gravely mistaken as to the nature of the real crisis if she thinks that her essential mission is to offer solutions to all the political problems relating to justice, peace, poverty, the reception of migrants, etc. while neglecting evangelisation,” the cardinal told Aid to the Church in Need on April 18. Sarah, who is the Prefect of the Congregation for Divine Worship, said that while...

    Eponymous Flower ^ | November 2, 2016 | Giuseppe Nardi
    The news is startling indeed, and was supported by different news agencies like Riposte Catholique and Boulevard Voltaire: Benedict XVI. adopted a position this October 12th in the Osservatore Romano on the battle escalating within the Church for the orientation of the Sacred Liturgy. He did not hesitate in himself making the line of Cardinal Robert Sarah entirely his own. Thus, the former head of the Church openly distanced himself from the line of his successor Pope Francis. Benedict XVI. has made this downright sensational step on soil familiar to him, theology. He spoke in favor of changing the celebration...

    One Peter Five ^ | October 31, 2016 | Maike Hickson
    As several outlets have now reported, on 28 October 2016 – just before his going to Lund, Sweden – Pope Francis replaced all the members of the Congregation for Divine Worship and the Discipline of the Sacraments. That is the dicastery currently (but perhaps only temporarily) headed by Cardinal Robert Sarah. Several Catholic authors from around the world – clergy and laymen alike – have responded with a measure of indignation about this unprecedented papal decision. Many see the shakeup as a sign that the pope disapproves of Cardinal Sarah’s recent attempts to encourage priests to celebrate the Holy Sacrifice...

    This past weekend the Most Reverend Robert Morlino, Bishop of the Diocese of Madison, Wisconsin made an announcement of great liturgical importance. Going forward His Excellency will be offering all of his Masses at the Cathedral ad orientem. Make no mistake about it, this is a major development on the liturgical landscape of American Catholicism. While Bishop Morlino is a strong supporter of the Traditional Latin Mass, and has offered it publicly on numerous occasions, his recent announcement pertains to Masses offered in the Ordinary Form of the Roman Rite. This is the positive manifestation of Robert Cardinal Sarah’s call...

    This is the 4th and final list of notable quotes from Cardinal Sarah’s book, God or Nothing. Today we publish excerpts of Sarah’s clear teaching on moral issues. I strongly suggest reading all four reports if this is the first that you have read. Each report covers different issues. - Cardinal Sarah: “Those who want to eradicate poverty make Christ a liar – they are mistaken and lying” - Cardinal Sarah: ambiguities on doctrine - can lead to dangerous opinions. - Cardinal Sarah: ‘separating magisterial teaching from pastoral practice is… heresy, a dangerous schizophrenic pathology’ Purchasing and reading the book,...

    It is quite remarkable to be living at a time when a Cardinal of the Roman Church and the Prefect of the Congregation for Divine Worship is publicly contradicted and humiliated. I do not know Cardinal Sarah personally, but from his writings, I suspect that he is using his humiliation in a spiritually profitable way. But one has to wonder at the absence of any sense of fatherly concern and mercy in the Year of Mercy. It seems that there is no limit to the nonsense that Father Lombardi allows himself to spew forth in defense of the indefensible. We...

    You might say—many commentators have said—that with the quick Vatican smackdown of Cardinal Sarah's proposal for ad orientem worship, Rome has spoken and the case is closed. I disagree. On the contrary, Cardinal Sarah has reopened a much-needed discussion about how to increase reverence in the liturgy. His address to a conference in London caused what that city's Catholic Herald is describing in this week's cover headline as A liturgical earthquake. Ten days ago no one was talking about celebrating Mass ad orientem. Now that option is being widely discussed, even in secular media outlets. Cardinal Sarah was not issuing...

    The Archbishop of Westminster has told clergy Mass is 'not the time for priests to exercise personal preference or taste' Cardinal Vincent Nichols has written to priests in Westminster diocese discouraging them from celebrating Mass facing east. He issued the message to clergy days after the Vatican’s liturgy chief Cardinal Robert Sarah invited priests to celebrate Mass ad orientem from Advent onwards. Cardinal Sarah was speaking at a liturgical conference in London. Following Cardinal Robert Sarah’s appeal at the Sacra Liturgia conference in London, Cardinal Nichols wrote to priests reminding them that, “the General Instruction of the Roman Missal, approved...

    (Madrid) Cardinal Robert Sarah, Prefect of the Roman Congregation for Divine Worship and the Discipline of the Sacraments expressed his hope that the Church in Spain would introduce "in the coming year," the words of consecration pro multis. In 2006, Pope Benedict XVI. approved a decree of the Congregation, to more accurately adjust the translation of the words of consecration in the local language to reflect the Church's Latin language and the Gospels. Cardinal Arinze, Prefect of the Congregation of Divine Worship 2002-2008, wrote to all bishops' conferences: "The Bishops' Conferences of the countries where currently the wording 'for all'...

    Cardinal Robert Sarah made the comments in an exclusive interview with Famille ChrétienneThe Vatican’s liturgy chief has called on priests to celebrate Mass facing east. In an interview with the French Catholic magazine Famille Chrétienne, Cardinal Robert Sarah said that the Second Vatican Council did not require priests to celebrate Mass facing the people. This way of celebrating Mass, he said, was “a possibility, but not an obligation”. Readers and listeners should face each other during the Liturgy of the Word, he said. “But as soon as we reach the moment when one addresses God – from the Offertory onwards...

    Catholic World Report ^ | 2/10/16 | Cardinal Robert Sarah
    It is important to recall that silence is a necessary condition for deep, contemplative prayer, and an important component of the liturgy. In an essay published in Italian in L'Osservatore Romano on January 30, 2016, Cardinal Robert Sarah, Prefect of the Congregation for Divine Worship and the Discipline of the Sacraments, discusses the meaning of silence in the Roman liturgy. The following English translation was prepared from the original, unabridged French text. Many Catholics rightly complain about the absence of silence in some forms of the celebration of our Roman liturgy. It seemed to us important, therefore, in this short...

His remarks should cause all of us to think as well as to repent.His fundamental insights are that the Sacred Liturgy is about the adoration and worship of God, and that it is our hearts that God seeks.I will present a few quotes from the good Cardinal in bold, black italics while my meager commentary is in plain, blue text.Cardinal Sarah...
