Some sycophants claim that the Holy Spirit chose Pope Francis to be Pope. That isn’t how the Holy Spirit works. If it were, likely this man would now be Pope:
Cardinal Robert Sarah has said he is “hurt to see so many priests selling off Catholic doctrine and sowing division among the faithful,” and that seeking to “win media popularity at the price of truth is like doing the work of Judas.”
The prefect of the Congregation for Divine Worship and the Discipline of the Sacraments also said that those who “loudly announce change and rupture are false prophets” and are “not looking for the good of the flock” but are “mercenaries smuggled into the sheepfold.”
Speaking to an audience at the church of Saint François-Xavier in Paris at a launch of his new book Le soir approche et déjà le jour baisse on May 25, the Guinean cardinal warned against causing division in the Church by promoting teaching contrary to the Magisterium.
“If everyone defends his opinion, his theological hypotheses, his novelty, or a pastoral approach that contradicts the requirements of the Gospel and the perennial Magisterium of the Church, then division will spread everywhere,” he said. “I am hurt to see so many priests selling off Catholic doctrine and sowing division among the faithful.”
The cardinal said Christians are owed “clear, firm and stable teaching,” and asked: “How is it acceptable that bishops or episcopal conferences contradict each other?”
“Where there is confusion, God cannot dwell!” the cardinal continued. “For God is Light and Truth.”
Coherence With Past Teaching
He stressed that the unity of the faith “implies the unity of the magisterium in space and time” and that “when a new teaching is given to us, it must always be interpreted in coherence with the preceding teaching.”
But he said “if we introduce ruptures and revolutions, we break the unity that has governed the Holy Church over the centuries.
Go here to read the rest. Cardinal Sarah is 74 years of age. May God in His mercy one day allow us to see him as Pope.
