VATICAN CITY (RNS) – Pope Francis on Saturday accepted the resignation of Cardinal Robert Sarah, head of the Congregation for Divine Worship, which oversees worship and sacraments. Sarah was among the last outspoken conservative prelates named to a position of influence by Pope Benedict XVI. 

“I am in God’s hands. The only rock is Christ. We will meet again very soon in Rome and elsewhere,” the Guinean cardinal, the highest ranked African prelate, tweeted on Saturday.
