Cardinal Sarah declines election to key committee at Vatican Youth Synod [“walking together”]
VATICAN CITY, October 4, 2018 (LifeSiteNews) — Cardinal Robert Sarah was elected last evening as a member of the Information Commission responsible for disseminating news on the Vatican Youth Synod, but has declined the position “for personal reasons,” it has emerged.
At a press briefing today at the Vatican, Bishop Fabio Fabene, undersecretary of the Synod of Bishops, told journalists that Cardinal Sarah, Prefect of the Congregation for Divine Worship and Discipline of the Sacraments, did not specify what his motives were for declining the position, only that it was due to “personal reasons.”
Cardinal Sarah, of Guinea, is also the author of two acclaimed books: God or Nothing and The Power of Silence.
I greatly respect Card. Sarah. If he declined this role, then God bless him.
Who would want to be associated with dissemination of pre-cooked news?
My own copy in English of Robert Card. Sarah’s book, The Power of Silence: Against the Dictatorship of Noise.
