Vatican City, 19 June, 2020 / 1:00 pm (ACI Africa).
Cardinal Robert Sarah said Wednesday that he would continue to serve as prefect of the Congregation for Divine Worship beyond his 75th birthday.
Bishops are required to submit their resignation to the pope when they turn 75. The Guinean cardinal celebrated his 75th birthday Monday, June 15.
In a June 17 post on his official Twitter account, Sarah wrote: “Thank you for the messages that have reached me from around the world on the occasion of my birthday. Let us continue the path with Christ. For my part, I am happy to continue my work within the Congregation for Divine Worship. Always pray for the pope.”
Je vous remercie pour les messages qui me sont parvenus du monde entier à l’occasion de mon anniversaire. Poursuivons le chemin avec le Christ. Pour ma part, je suis heureux de continuer mon travail au sein de la Congrégation pour le Culte Divin. Prions toujours pour le Pape. +RS pic.twitter.com/AptlIX2msc— Cardinal R.
