Easy to follow, airtight reasoning
An Introduction to Sedevacantism
Part I: Vatican II’s New Doctrine on the Church
We have begun making a series of videos that is meant to introduce newcomers to Sedevacantism in a way that is easy to follow, provides airtight argumentation, and does not overwhelm.
The first part of the series puts before the viewer the Second Vatican Council’s new doctrine on the Church (ecclesiology), according to which the Church of Jesus Christ no longer is the Catholic Church, as taught by Pope Pius XII and all of his predecessors, but instead now “subsists in” it. This bizarre new teaching is typically known as communio ecclesiology, elements ecclesiology, “Frankenchurch”, or — our preferred term — patchwork ecclesiology, because it holds that the Church of Jesus Christ exists in elements: The Catholic Church has all of them, but various other religions also have some of them and hence there exists a “partial communion” between them and the “Catholic” (i.e.… READ MORE

Bp. Sanborn on the Antichrist
There has always been much talk about the Antichrist and the end of times. Some people have a virtual obsession with this topic, so much so that they neglect their own spiritual lives, forgetting that understanding and figuring out every bit of divine prophecy is neither required, nor necessarily salutary, nor even possible (cf. 2 Pet 1:20; Mk 13:31-33). As St. Paul said to the Corinthians: “And if I should have prophecy and should know all mysteries, and all knowledge, and if I should have all faith, so that I could remove mountains, and have not charity, I am nothing” (1 Cor 13:2).… READ MORE

The Encyclical Mirari Vos of Pope Gregory XVI (1832)
Last year, our friends over at Restoration Radio launched an exciting new series on the errors of modernity: In The Popes Against Modern Errors, sedevacantist Bishop Donald Sanborn analyzes and comments on the great anti-modern encyclical letters of the Popes from Gregory XVI through Pius XII (1831-1958).
The first episode is dedicated to Pope Gregory XVI’s 1832 landmark encyclical against liberalism, Mirari Vos. This magisterial document condemns and refutes errors such as indifferentism, freedom of speech, religious liberty, and separation of church and state.… READ MORE

50 Years of the Modernist Juggernaut
Vatican II: The Documents Examined
Bp. Donald Sanborn dismantles the Chief Errors
of the Second Vatican Council (1962-65)
Album / Alamy Stock Photo
The Modernist monstrosity known as the Second Ecumenical Council of the Vatican opened on October 11, 1962, and officially closed on December 8, 1965, almost exactly 50 years ago. “Vatican II”, as it came to be known, laid the doctrinal and pastoral groundwork for the Novus Ordo Religion, which is why in most cases, the “New Catholicism” that emerged after the death of Pope Pius XII (1958) refers back into the past no further than “Pope” John XXIII (Angelo Roncalli, d.… READ MORE
Radio Interview with Bp. Sanborn
More Commentary on the “New Mass” Fiasco
Bp. Richard Williamson
Once more we return to the controversy surrounding Bishop Richard Williamson for remarks he made on June 28 of this year about the licitness of attending the “New Mass” of Paul VI (aka Novus Ordo Missae) in certain exceptional circumstances. Because of the seriousness of the question and the standing Bp. Williamson enjoys among people who consider themselves uncompromising, militant traditional Catholics, more commentary on the matter is fitting.
Formerly with the Society of St. Pius X (until his dismissal in 2012) and now a “wandering” cleric, Bp.… READ MORE

Christ or Belial?
Bp. Sanborn refutes Bp. Williamson on the “New Mass”
Just recently we took Bp. Richard Williamson to task for his ludicrous argumentation that the “New Mass” of the Vatican II Sect can licitly be attended by Catholics under certain restrictive circumstances. As we demonstrated in our post and video, the former SSPX bishop’s argumentation was lacking in consistency and, most of all, in traditional Catholic theological principles. Williamson based his entire argumentation on the Modernist, Subjectivist, and Protestant idea that licit attendance at Holy Mass is determined by what it does for the believer, rather than whether it is the true worship of God by the Catholic Church.… READ MORE

Most Rev. Donald J. Sanborn
This past Friday, June 26, 2015, the Supreme Court of the United States of America (SCOTUS) handed down its decision in the case Obergefell v. Hodges, in which five of the nine judges “decided” that states do not have the right to refuse to issue marriage licenses to “couples” of the same sex. In other words, this Supreme Court decision “legalized” and imposed the unnatural aberration known as “gay marriage” in all 50 states.… READ MORE

The Anti-Modernist Reader:
Studies on the New Religion of Vatican II
Volume 1: The Papacy
Edited by Rev. Anthony Cekada
The Anti-Modernist Reader is a multi-volume anthology of articles written by several sedevacantist clerics since the 1990s, many of which have been published at TraditionalMass.org. The essays are arranged topically, with each volume being dedicated to a particular topic. This first volume, now published, deals with the divinely-established office of the papacy. Future volumes will include material on the Holy Mass, on the Sacraments, on Sedevacantism, and more.
To give you an introduction to this series and provide some of the background of how the idea for this anthology came about, our friends at Restoration Radio have put together a short broadcast, free of charge, discussing The Anti-Modernist Reader with its editor and co-author: CLICK HERE TO LISTEN.… READ MORE

Countering Francis’ Heresy against the Most Holy Trinity
On October 9 of this year, the incredible headline made the rounds: “Pope Says ‘God Does Not Exist’!” (See our blog post discussing this here.)
No, it wasn’t satire published by The Onion. It wasn’t a misquote. It wasn’t even taken out of context. It was simply what Francis had said — the only falsehood in the headline being that Francis isn’t actually the Pope, though over 1 billion “Catholics” believe him to be.
So, are we saying that Francis was teaching atheism by saying, “God does not exist”?… READ MORE

The Catholic Church and the “Conciliar” Church: Two Churches in One?
Bp. Donald Sanborn dismantles a Linchpin Doctrine of Recognize-and-Resist Theology
In his June 2014 newsletter, Bp. Donald Sanborn, rector of the sedevacantist Most Holy Trinity Seminary in Brooksville, Florida, provides an insightful perspective on the ontological status of what we like to call the “Novus Ordo Sect”, “Vatican II Church” or “Conciliar Church” and the panacean role this concept, in modified form, plays in the ever-convenient but thoroughly erroneous “recognize-and-resist” position, which acknowledges Francis as Pope but rejects his teachings, disciplines, and canonizations. The recognize-and-resisters effectively believe that there are two churches in one — the true one and a false one — and it is their task to figure out when the true Church is speaking and when the false one rears its ugly head.… READ MORE

The Syllogism of Sedevacantism
A Conference with Bp. Donald Sanborn
(presented on Dec. 21, 2013 in London, England)
In this powerful 110-minute talk, His Excellency Bp. Donald Sanborn of Most Holy Trinity Seminary in Brooksville, Florida, gives an airtight presentation of the case for Sedevacantism, demonstrating with impeccable logic that the religion taught, practiced, and imposed by the Novus Ordo Church in the Vatican is not the Roman Catholic religion founded by our Lord Jesus Christ and represented by all true Popes up until Pius XII (d.… READ MORE
