A Conversation with a Sedevacantist Priest
Tired of reading long and complicated articles on traditionalist issues? Then watch this calm, insightful conversation in which Fr. Anthony Cekada explains very simply why only the sedevacantist position is the truly Catholic position to take with regard to the Vatican II Church and the apostasy it has engendered, and how we can know this for certain. As a former member of the Novus Ordo Church and also the Society of St. Pius X, he narrates his own conversion from a “conservative” Novus Ordo position to sedevacantism.… READ MORE
We Had Been Warned:
Rev. Sylvester Berry in The Apocalypse of St. John:
“The Papacy will be Attacked by all the Powers of Hell… the Church will suffer great Trials … in securing a Successor upon the Throne of Peter… The Church [will be] deprived of her Chief Pastor…”
In 1921, Fr. E. Sylvester Berry (1879-1954) published a wonderful commentary on the scriptural book of the Apocalypse (also known as the book of Revelation). With careful analysis and gifted insight, Fr. Berry comments on every passage found in the last book of the Bible.
In view of what has transpired in the 20th century in the Roman Catholic Church, and the counterfeit “Catholic” church that was set up after the death of Pope Pius XII in 1958 (which the same Fr.… READ MORE
Response to “Catholic Answers”
Rejoinder from the “Rad Trads”
Chances are you’ve heard of an organization called Catholic Answers in Southern California. This enterprise was founded in 1979 by Karl Keating and has effectively become the de facto bulwark of the Novus Ordo religion in the United States. They follow a policy of strictest adherence to the Novus Ordo Vatican in all things and so are Novus Ordo and modernistic to the core, yet with that “conservative” veneer that keeps many trapped inside the Conciliar Church.
On May 31, 2013, their Catholic Answers Live radio show featured a program entitled “Radical Traditionalism”, which was dedicated to refuting the errors of the Society of St.… READ MORE

Tradition in Action Gets It Wrong Again on Public Heretics
[UPDATE 6/28/13: Tradition In Action has corrected and apologized for the errors they published regarding automatic excommunication: SEE HERE. We gladly and gratefully accept this apology and retraction and hope that they will do the same regarding the question of loss of office due to public defection from the Faith. TIA ought to be praised for having the integrity and humility to recognize errors and correct them. If this were only true of The Remnant and Catholic Family News!]
One of the best web sites exposing the horrors of the bogus Vatican II religion is the site Tradition In Action.… READ MORE

John Vennari: “I would never allow Pope Francis
to Teach Religion to my Children”
Mr. John Vennari is the editor of the traditionalist but anti-sedevacantist (which we call “semi-traditionalist” or “neo-traditionalist”) monthly paper Catholic Family News. He is one of the few semi-traditionalists whose belief in the claim to the papacy of the leaders of the Novus Ordo Church since 1958 does not cause him to disregard or minimize the ugly facts about these men with regard to their theology and morals. (In this, he distinguishes himself from many of his colleagues, such as the Rev.… READ MORE

When Death Comes For You,
How Will You Choose?
Pope St. Pius X on his deathbed (1914)
Imagine yourself on your deathbed. Your strength is failing you; you’ve had what was probably your last meal. You are in intense agony, as the bodily suffering you are undergoing is exceeded only by the anguish of your soul because you need to go to confession but are now entirely dependent on a priest coming to you. The priest has been called, but he hasn’t arrived yet. You are afraid because you know that your soul could be parting from your body at any moment.… READ MORE

Concerning an SSPX Dossier on Sedevacantism
by Mr. John Lane
In 2004, Fr. Dominique Boulet, SSPX, published an article entitled “Is that Chair Vacant? A SSPX Dossier on Sedevacantism”. Mr. John Lane, a sedevacantist from Australia, has taken it upon himelf to analyze and refute Fr. Boulet’s work, step by step. The 84 page document, linked below in PDF, is well worth the read.

“The entire force of the Conciliar revolt comes from the fact that it has apparently been imposed by the authority of the Church. How many bishops, priests, religious, and laymen, would have swallowed the lies of the heretics if they had not believed themselves bound to do so by the voice of Christ’s Vicar on earth?
The Modernists’ last-ditch defense tactic refuted…
“Who are YOU to judge who is a Heretic?”
The following is an excerpt from the 1886 book Liberalism is a Sin by Fr. Felix Sarda y Salvany. It was endorsed and praised by the Vatican’s Sacred Congregation of the Index under Pope Leo XIII. The book exposes the ideas and tactics of the Modernists, called Liberals at the time, and we cannot recommend it highly enough. In fact, one may say that this book completely destroys many fundamental ideas of the bogus Second Vatican Council (1962-65) and the new religion it engendered (which we call the Novus Ordo Religion).… READ MORE
Official SSPX Hits Back At Bp. Fellay Adversaries:
“The Pseudo-Anti-Liberal Illusion”
For some time now, certain persons have been publishing the most grievous accusations against the superiors of the SSPX to an almost obsessive degree without realising that they themselves have lost contact with reality; they have fallen into errors which I will call “pseudo-anti-liberal”, because they pretend to be anti-liberal, though they themselves fall into the very defect they condemn, as wrote St Paul: “Wherein thou judgest another, thou condemnest thyself; for thou dost the same things which thou judgest” (Rom. 2:1).

Stumbling At the Finish Line:
Another Look at the SSPX’s Illogical Stance on the Pope Question
Commentary by Francis del Sarto
The strange ecclesial soap opera that is the series of on-again, off-again negotiations between Benedict XVI and the Society of St. Pius X in 2012 took yet another curious turn in mid-September 2012, when the SSPX’s Bishop Bernard Tissier de Mallerais revealed the contents of a confidential letter sent back in the summer by Benedict to Bishop Bernard Fellay, head of the Society.
According to Bp. Tissier:

The Chair Is Still Empty:
A Response to John Salza on the Alleged “Errors of Sedevacantism”

On July 15, 2010, The Remnant published an article by Milwaukee-based Mr. John Salza, J.D., critiquing the theological position known as sedevacantism (from the Latin sede vacante, “the chair being empty”), which basically holds that the claimants to the papal throne after the death of Pope Pius XII on October 9, 1958, are illegitimate and not true Popes at all, and that the church of which John XXIII, Paul VI, John Paul I, John Paul II, and Benedict XVI have been the heads is not the Catholic Church of our Lord Jesus Christ but a modernist institution masquerading as the Catholic Church, with the ultimate aim to eradicate true, traditional Catholicism from the face of the earth in order to lead souls to hell.… READ MORE
The Trojan Horse of the SSPX-Vatican Negotiations
How Bp. Williamson Puts Souls at Risk

Of the various reasons the Catholic Church down through the ages has insisted on Latin as the language of her Roman rite liturgy has been the variability of vernacular languages, and hence the reliability of them to consistently preserve word meanings. When one is dealing with unchangeable eternal truths, it is crucial to be certain that the way those truths are expressed cannot deviate in meaning, which is all too easy to do when a living language is being used as witnessed in the “New Mass”.… READ MORE
