Sixty years without a Pope — how could this happen?
Like Sheep without a Shepherd:
60 Years of Sede Vacante
During last year’s Fatima Conference sponsored by the Congregation of Mary Immaculate Queen (CMRI) in Spokane, Washington, Mr. Mario Derksen, pictured below, delivered a lecture on the subject of 60 years of sede vacante since the death of Pope Pius XII on October 9, 1958. We are happy to be able to share the 42-minute audio recording and also a written transcript in this post.
Looking at the extreme devastation of the Catholic landscape that has been wrought in the past 60 years, Mr.

The Papacy and Sedevacantist “Disunity”
The following article appeared in the sedevacantist quarterly The Reign of Mary, vol. XLV, no. 155, in the summer of 2014. It addresses a phenomenon that a lot of people seeking to be genuine traditional Catholics struggle with: the apparent “disunity” among sedevacantists.

During last year’s Fatima Conference sponsored by the Congregation of Mary Immaculate Queen (CMRI) in Spokane, Washington, Mr. Mario Derksen, pictured below, gave a most informative lecture on the subject of the Catholic Papacy and the Church’s Mystical Passion.

What has happened to the Catholic Church? This is the question that everyone who has a love for the Church is asking himself in our time. The Church of Jesus Christ is divinely guaranteed to be indefectible: She cannot change in her essence; she cannot defect from her divine mission; she cannot compromise with the errors of the world; she cannot lose the Faith and suddenly promote a different religion.
A significant contribution given its outlet’s Vatican-vetted content & the author – now spokesman-emeritus to the Popes – in @civcatt, the venerable Fr Lombardi surveys the decades-long path to February “Abuse Synod”… with some subtle prods along the way: https://t.co/BeJpfN3ysM
The fact that the Novus Ordo Church considers ecumenism an imperative - when the #Catholic Church taught it was impermissible - is one of the clearest proofs of a substantial change in religion: https://t.co/dhmcdnwPv0 #popefrancis #fssp #vatican #trcot
