2013-03-10

Since 2010, he has served as the president of the Pontifical Council, Cor Unum, which oversees all the charity work of the Universal Church. But Cardinal Sarah insists, the Church is not like an NGO.

CARD. ROBERT SARAH
President, Pontifical Council Cor Unum
"Catholic volunteering is based on our faith in God, which teaches us to give ourselves to others, just as Christ did. So it's not just volunteering for the sake of volunteering. It's about fulfilling a mission, the same mission of Christ of giving oneself to others. This is the main difference between us and a regular NGO.”

Cardinal Robert Sarah speaks French, English and Italian. He has also been the Papal envoy to areas of conflict and great need. He went to Haiti after the massive earthquake and most recently he visited Lebanon to meet with Syrian refugees.
