On those ‘Spiritual Dangers’ of Sedevacantism:
A Reply to Eric Sammons

It uncovers unsettling facts about an occultist influence on “Traditional Catholicism” or “Catholic Traditionalism” — and here we use the term in a very loose sense.
The essay was published on the social media platform Medium and takes over an hour to read in full. Here is the direct link:
