Robert Sarah is a Guinean prelate of the Catholic Church who is also a Cardinal since 20 November 2010, and prefect of the Congregation for Divine Worship and the Discipline of the Sacraments has called on the need for the faithful to receive the Holy Communion and hear confessions too.
This is coming as the government has locked down all places of worships and faithful congregants.
Reacting to the development caused by the coronavirus pandemic, Cardinal Sarah has questioned the authority of the government to stop the reception of the Holy Community and administration of the sacrament of confession.
Cardinal Sarah was recently on a hated controversy over coronavirus pandemic and the manner of approach given to the situation by the government.
In his recent tweet he said;
Nobody can prevent a priest from confessing and giving communion, nobody has the right to stop him. The sacrament must be respected. So even if it is not possible to attend Masses, the faithful can ask to be confessed and to receive Communion. +RS pic.twitter.com/ZvwjSoTpuo
