The website of Vatican Radio reports that His Eminence Robert Cardinal Sarah has been appointed by Pope Francis Prefect of the Congregation for Divine Worship and the Discipline of the Sacraments. Cardinal Sarah was ordained a priest of the Archdiocese of Konakry in Guinea in 1969 (incidentally, on the very day of the Apollo 11 moon-landing, July 20th), and appointed as Archbishop of that See just over ten years later. In 2001, he was appointed Secretary of the Congregation for the Evangelization of Peoples; since 2010, he has served as the President of the Pontifical Council “Cor Unum.” He was made a Cardinal by Pope Benedict XVI at the consistory of November 20, 2010. Our prayers for His Eminence and best wishes to him on his new appointment.
