ROME - Guinean Cardinal Robert Sarah, prefect of the Congregation for Divine Worship and the Sacraments, said the people who portray him as an opponent of Pope Francis are being used by the devil to help divide the Church.
“The truth is that the Church is represented on earth by the vicar of Christ, that is by the pope. And whoever is against the pope is, ipso facto, outside the Church,” the cardinal said in an interview published Oct. 7 in Corriere della Sera, an Italian daily. - Finish reading here.
Hopefully this will help the anti-papist-Catholic-conspiracy-mongers to repent.
“I would add that every pope is right for his time.” - Cardinal Sarah
Our friend Mary, the author at Catholic In Brooklyn just posted a great essay contradicting the contentious anti-papist rhetoric originating at Mrs. Kreitzer's blog, Les Femmes, signalling out the post, "Anti-Pope. That's my final decision." Authored by Susan Matthiesen, a contributor to Krietzer's blog. As Mary notes, "It is a complete and total renunciation of Pope Francis and denies the validity of his papacy." Please read Mary's entire post, it is very well done.

Cardinal Sarah would be proud of Mary for her defense of the papacy and offering fraternal correction to bloggers such as Kreitzer and Matthiesen:
“Those who place me in opposition to the Holy Father cannot present a single word of mine, a single phrase or a single attitude of mine to support their absurd - and I would say, diabolical - affirmations,” Sarah said. “The devil divides, sets people against each other.”
Sarah said it is normal for the Church to experiences difficulties and divisions, but every Christian is called “to seek unity in Christ.”
“I would add that every pope is right for his time,” the cardinal said. “Providence looks after us very well, you know.” - Crux
