Cardinal Sarah: The Church of Africa will stand on orthodoxy no matter what the Europeans do

Recently named Prefect for Divine Worship, Cardinal Robert Sarah, in a new book entitled Either God or Nothing (Dieu ou rien) addresses a concept absolutely central in the current debates initiated from the Vatican and even the very top of the hierarchy, according to Rorate:
"The idea that would consist in placing the Magisterium in a nice box by detaching it from pastoral practice -- which could evolve according to the circumstances, fads, and passions -- is a form of heresy, a dangerous schizophrenic pathology. I affirm solemnly that the Church of Africa will firmly oppose every rebellion against the teaching of Christ and the Magisterium."
Thank you, Cardinal!!

The legacy of Lefebvre:

* professor at St. John's Seminary in Libreville, Gabon
* superior of a number of missions of the Holy Ghost Fathers in Gabon
* Vicar Apostolic of Dakar (Liberia)
* the first Metropolitan Archbishop of Dakar

By its fruits shall you know it.

Jus' sayin', yo.

Excuse me, Senegal, not Liberia. Actually, as apostolic delegate to French Africa, he influenced African Catholicism throughout a major swath of western and central Africa. Including Guinea, Sarah's home.

Been playin' whack-a-mole wit da guy for fifty years an' he's still poppin' up on ya.

Jus' sayin', yo.
