Traditional Catholic Conference & Debate on Sedevacantism (2002)
On July 6, 2002, a traditional Catholic conference and debate took place between Mr. John Daly of France, Mr. John Lane of Australia, and Mr. Gerry Matatics of the United States. The almost 4-hour-long conference took place at a hotel in Verona, New York, and was recorded in full.
We are pleased to be able to share with you the complete audio of this conference in the player below:

As you listen to the audio, please keep in mind that it was recorded 13 years ago, during the “reign” of John Paul II. Mr. Daly and Mr. Lane argued the case for sedevacantism; Mr. Matatics, at the time not yet a sedevacantist, raised objections, which were then answered by Daly and Lane. The presentation given by Mr. Daly has since been transcribed and published in The Four Marks newspaper, available here:
- “The Impossible Crisis: Why John Paul II Cannot be Pope” (John S. Daly)
The introduction at this conference was given by Dr. Lance Tardugno. The “St. Thomas Aquinas” web site of John Lane mentioned at the beginning is now defunct. However, Mr. Lane still maintains a discussion forum at sedevacantist.com. John Daly, a professional translator (French and Latin), is also a publisher and has reprinted a number of rare traditional Catholic books at TradiBooks.com. He has a personal web site at Romeward.com.
