Thank you! (I wonder how many languages the Cardinal speaks?)
How lovely, and encouraging!
Hopefully our next Pope!
Oh Father this was wonderful to read. My husband and I got to spend Holy Thursday and Good Friday with the Monks. Father Cassin gave us a private teaching on the Gospel for Easter prior to our Easter Vigil and Easter Sunday at St. Peters with the Pope! We were so worried about them all, then so relieved that they were not hurt during the earthquake. Cdl. Sarah is our hope for the future, just like the monks and their prayer keeps our Church alive. We also got to meet and speak with this holy Cdl after Mass on Easter Sunday. So blessed are we.
He radiates the authentic message of Christ. I know authentic might be overused to describe everything from hipster yoga to gluten free diets, but I think it points to something important, that this generation, saturated in falsehoods as it is – false freedoms, false spirituality, false happiness – it does thirst even more so for something real, truthful, meaningful, enduring. Cardinal Sarah exudes real authenticity, in every aspect of his person, from his humble beginnings (maybe especially that), to his even more humble heights. Sheep respond to their shepherd. I’m certain his call could bring back the 99.
Heavenly Father in the name of Jesus Christ Your Son and our Saviour please bring Your Holy Shepherd Cardinal Sarah to the chair of Peter as Your Vicar on earth. Please God protect and guide him always from those who have and will harm him for standing for truth and right worship. Dearest Mother Mary please intercede for Cardinal Sarah always and for this intention. Amen.
There is a striking contrast between the authentically warm welcome rendered Cardinal Sarah at Norcia, and the cold fraudulence offered Cardinal Arinze when he visited a monastic community to which I belonged twelve years ago.
By God’s Grace, may Norcia continue to flourish despite the recent challenge provided by nature.
The title of the article says it all, Father, spiritual super powers. It was good to read after the first two entries about war and persecution (which are obviously coming and intensifying), and “catholics” who harm our faith. Heavy reading and all before breakfast! It is necessary to speak the truth, however, because far too many are still oblivious to what goes on around them. The blindness is amazing, but it’s all there in Scripture. God bless and keep you and all clergy safe, Father Z. Thank you for what you do.
