March 19, 2019 (LifeSiteNews) In his latest book, Le soir approche et déjà le soir baisse (It is nearly evening, and the day is almost over, a quotation from the episode of the Emmaus pilgrims in Gospel of St. Luke), Cardinal Robert Sarah decided to speak out for the disorientated Catholics hurting from the deep crisis the Church is going through.
I can no longer remain silent. I may no longer remain silent, Cardinal Sarah wrote in his opening paragraph. He has taken full measure of the dark night of the Church and She is wrapped and blinded by the mystery of iniquity.
Days before the books release in France on March 20, its introduction was published online, giving a foretaste of a truly gripping text that tackles todays problems head on: sexual abuse, but also doctrinal relativism, social activism and lack of prayer, false accusations of generalized homosexuality and hypocrisy, and the doubts of the faithful who see the Churchs enemies in its very midst.
Cardinal Sarah, prefect of the Congregation for Divine Worship and the Discipline of the Sacraments, offers no strategy, he says. Instead, he announces the timeless answers without which all efforts are useless a deeply-rooted life of prayer, fidelity to the true teaching handed down by the Church rather than selling the Catholic doctrine short as so many pastors are doing, fraternal charity, and the love of Peter.
But his words are in no way a minimization of the ordeal the Church is going through.
Cardinal Sarah does not hesitate to speak in the words of Pope Paul VI of the smoke of Satan that has invaded the Church, openly designating the traitors who, like Judas Iscariot, have become agents of the Evil one. They have sought to defile the......

Maybe he should read the Bible - there’s a lot of really good information in there.
“a deeply-rooted life of prayer, fidelity to the true teaching handed down by the Church”
He knows more about the Bible than you could ever forget.
It is the march of organized psychopaths. It has a charming face, at first.
At some point Our Lord will lift his hand and we will then be enabled to see clearly what we are dealing with.
From 1969 to 1974 he studied at the Pontifical Gregorian University in Rome, where he obtained a licentiate in theology, except for the year 1971 which he spent at the Studium Biblicum Franciscanum of Jerusalem, where he obtained a licentiate in Sacred Scriptures.
I would say he knows a lot of Bible.
The love of Peter... maybe he should try the Love of Christ.
Should be reversed - I know very little.
He (Cardinal Sarah) should get 'them' to read the Bilble.
I definitely did not click through and read the story, I get angry over how the Church is pushing the kool-aid instead of the word of G*d.
Cardinal Sarah is the Pontif it needs.

I would like for my Daughter to go to Catholic School, like I did, and benefit from the wisdom and morality of the Sisters.
"The Way" - funny, I've never considered the similarity to "Hozro" in Diné Bizaad. Straying from or not following the way, leads to imbalance, loss of harmony & beauty.
Thanks for your post. Now I will need to look up “Hozro”. Diné is Navajo, right?

If Cardinal Sarah does not condemn Vatican II then he is still part of the problem.
Thank you for that explanation.
Just reading older points, but I’ve been thinking that’s the next “level” we’ll reach. Akin to enlightenment and when the Moshiach comes.
It is also akin to "You shall know the Truth and it shall set you free."
Recognizing evil is a major part of it.
