Robert SarahRobert Sarah (; born 15 June 1945) is a Guinean prelate of the Catholic Church. A Cardinal since 20 November 2010, he was appointed prefect of the Congregation for Divine Worship and the Discipline of the Sacraments by Pope Francis on 23 November 2014. He previously served as secretary of the Congregation for the Evangelization of Peoples under Pope John Paul II, and president of the Pontifical Council ''Cor Unum'' under Pope Benedict XVI.
A prominent voice of the College of Cardinals and in the Roman Curia, Sarah has been a forceful advocate for the defense of traditional Catholic teaching on questions of sexual morality and the right to life, and in denouncing Islamic radicalism. He has called gender ideology and the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIS) the "two radicalizations" that threaten the family, the first through divorce, same-sex marriage and abortion, the latter with child marriage, polygamy and the subjection of women.
Though he has been described as largely sympathetic to pre-Vatican II liturgical practices, he has also proposed that partisans of different liturgies learn from each other and seek a middle ground. He has been mentioned as ''papabile'', a possible candidate for the papacy, by international media outlets such as ''Le Monde'', as well as by Catholic publications including ''Crux'', the ''National Catholic Reporter'' and the ''Catholic Herald''.
