This is the Dogmatic position of the Sede Vacantist Catholics and these are the FACTS.
Dear friends of the FAITH:
The Vatican Council (1869), which defined Papal infallibility & Perpetual successors in the Papacy, makes it clear by the Church that there can never be a break in the line of successors of Peter (and there never has been beyond death or resignation). Also under Infallibility in the 1912 Catholic Encyclopedia it states “…were a pope to become a public heretic, i. e., were he PUBLICLY and OFFICIALLY to teach some doctrine clearly opposed to what has been defined as de fide catholic. But in this case many theologians hold that NO formal sentence of deposition would be required; as by becoming a PUBLIC (meaning formal) HERETIC the POPE would ipso facto CEASE to be POPE. This however, is a hypothetical case which has NEVER ( up until 1912) actually occurred; even the case of Pope Honorius, were it proved that he taught the Monothelite heresy, would not be a case in point.” pg.799 Continue reading
This article written by a Sede Vacantist Catholic Priest is the basic position of most Traditional Catholic Priests and is well written. I must point out; however, as with most of these traditional Catholic priests that what is being ignored is the Perpetual successors in the Papacy by the same council they quote. The Vatican Council (1869) This council makes it clear that there can never be a break in the line of successors of Peter, (and there never has been accept for death resignation or exile.) Now, even with all of the Anti-popes in the past history of the church there was also a living true Pope. The one important factor left out, in a word is, ANTI-CHRIST. The rest of these articles you will find on my web site under current and “Why Sede Vacante.”

The papal election from November 1268 to September 1, 1271, Wikipedia
Following the death of Pope Clement IV, was the longest papal election in the history of the Catholic Church. This was due primarily to political infighting between the cardinals.
This is called an Interregnum. Not considered a break in the line of popes.

Paul VI found the traditional Mass too Catholic and directed that it had to replicate the Calvinist Communion Service as revealed by his confidant, Jean Guitton;
The New Mass closely replicates the 1959 Communion Service of the Protestant “Church of South India;”
The New Mass never had an Offertory. Preparation of the Gifts is one of the 18 blessings taken from the Talmud, reference, REAL STORY OF THE OFFERTORY’S REPLACEMENT

True or False Pope? is the most thoroughly researched, detailed and systematic refutation of Sedevacantism that exists, (so they think), and represents the most cogent defense of the Papacy and Church against their specious arguments. In this 700 page tome, John Salza and Robert Siscoe present material from Popes (?) (So do Sede Vacantists) The book True or False Pope states that Vatican II was not Ex Cathedra nor infallible because they did not define anything as “dogma that is divinely revealed.” The book also states that in order for the church to be infallible on a given teaching, the church must claim it is teaching infallibly. (?) Continue reading
Impugning the known truth is a mortal sin against the Holy Ghost
The definition of Sede Vacante is not defined correctly. It is an adopted word to explain an empty chair as a result of a death or resignation of a pope. The problem with this definition alludes to the state of the church to be headless. Our Lord said “Thou art Peter . . . . and the gates of Hell shall not prevail against it.” This implies that no matter what happens to the pope there will always be someone to act in the place of the pope who will run the church until another pope is elected. Hence we have the term “perpetual successors”. The Church has always taught that St. Peter’s successors to be in an unending, an unbroken chain. So up until the Vatican II Council, there has never been a break in the line of successors (Vatican Council I).What I wish to state is up until the Vatican II Council, the proper understanding of Sede Vacante is really Sede Transition for, as I pointed out, the Church is never without its delegated authority.

Why did Cardinals Ottaviani and Bacci proceed to offer the New Mass anyway? If the Ottaviani Intervention was sufficient to establish the crime of heresy of Paul VI?
Their complaint was only that it was problematic, but they ended up tolerating it. I do not know of one Church Theologian who believes that Paul VI’s rejection of the Ottaviani Intervention was sufficient to establish Paul VI’s crime of heresy. Do you?
Otherwise, Ottaviani and Bacci would have declared Paul VI to be a formal heretic, and they would have refused to say the New
Clarification of the opposition LEADERS to the Vatican II Council
When Pope Paul VI rejected the “Ottaviani Intervention,” on November 19, 1969, he also rejected all of the RELIGIOUS who were in defiant to the Vatican II Council. On this day he said “that using the new rites was an act of obedience, Continue reading
During a conversation with Archbishop Marcel Lefebvre in 1980, I hinted about my worries over finding a bishop after his death who would ordain traditional Catholic priests and confirm our children.
The archbishop — at that time he hadn’t indicated whether he would one day consecrate bishops — tactfully replied that the question worried him, too, and that “Deus providebit” — God will provide. He added, with one of his trademark French chuckles, that each time he had a coughing or sneezing fit in the seminary chapel at Econe, he could almost hear the 80 seminarians silently change their prayer to just one fervent petition: “God, let him live — at least till he ordains me!” MORE
Foolishness is the result of a person misusing the intelligence God has given him. A fool uses his reasoning skills to make wrong decisions. The most basic type of foolishness is denying God’s existence or saying “no” to God (Psalm 14:1). The Bible associates folly with a quick temper (Proverbs 14:16–17), perverse speech (Proverbs 19:1), and disobedience to parents (Proverbs 15:5). We are born with an innate foolishness, but discipline will help train us in wisdom (Proverbs 22:15). Continue reading
