Cardinal Sarah Books & Bio

Cardinal Sarah

Cardinal Robert Sarah is currently the prefect of the Congregation for Divine Worship and the Discipline of the Sacraments and was appointed to that position by Pope Francis in 2014. Before that, he also occupied prominent positions during the papacies of Pope Benedict and Pope John Paul II.

Cardinal Sarah is known for being particularly outspoken in defending traditional Catholic teaching when it comes to issues such as abortion, sexuality, and Islamic radicalism. He has continuously promoted pre-Vatican II practices, such as having the priest face ad orientem in an effort to bring the focus of the Mass back toward the Eucharist. However, he also also encouraged that proponents of the different liturgies work together to find a middle ground.

Cardinal Sarah is also known for speaking up and being particularly critical of Western culture when most other prelates are silent. He places particular emphasis on the subjection of women, gender ideology, and he has stated that in general life in western society is organized as if God does not exist, which has led to a tremendous "silent apostasy". 

In terms of his devotional life, he places great emphasis on Eucharistic devotion and praying by quieting one's mind in silent reflection and meditation.
