Pope Francis has removed a top African Vatican official whom many people around the world see as a future pope. The pope accepted the resignation of Cardinal Robert Sarah who was the head of the department of the liturgy in the Vatican. Sarah is considered a strong conservative whose opinions on church matters vary in many respects from that of the pontiff.

The Holy See Press Office acknowledged the resignation of Sarah but did not provide reasons for the development. However, inside sources revealed that Cardinal Sarah tendered his resignation as head of the liturgy department last year after he clocked 75 years in accordance with church law. The sources said Francis usually allows cardinals to remain to retain their position for 2-4 years out of magnanimity after they turn 75, but does not allow them to remain in such offices after age 80.
