Vatican Cardinal Robert Sarah, a native of Guinea, strongly condemned globalism and mass immigration in his recently released book Evening Draws Near and the Day Is Nearly Over. In an interview he stated, “It is a false exegesis to use the Word of God to promote migration. . . . All migrants who arrive in Europe are penniless and without work or dignity. Sarah asked, “Is this what the Church wants, this new form of slavery? . . . If the West continues in this way, there is great risk that, due to lack of birth, it will disappear, invaded by foreigners, just as Rome [was] invaded by foreigners.” The cardinal affirmed that the best way to help people is in their own homelands.
Commenting on the fact that much of the Roman Catholic leadership supports mass immigration, Sarah observed that “In the Church there have always been betrayals. Today, I can say without fear that some priests, some bishops and even some cardinals are afraid to proclaim what God teaches and to transmit the doctrine of the Church. They are afraid of being seen as reactionary.”
Sarah was sharply critical of the European Union’s globalist agenda: “The Brussels Commission thinks only about building a free market in the service of the great financial powers. The European Union no longer protects the peoples within it. It protects the banks. This contemporary desire to globalize the world, ridding it of nations with their distinctive characteristics is sheer madness.”
