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
Was Julian the Apostate the last Roman ruler who tried to rid the Western world of Christianity? Julian the Caesar Augustus after Constantine, tried to reverse Constantine’s approval of Christianity, by restoring the temples of the old Gods and stripping lands the Christian priests owned. As a result the Catholic countries, Rome, Milan, Florence, Sicily to name a few, now had no protection from the State and as a result had to form their own Armies. In the case of Rome the pope would generally appoint a relative as a Cardinal and put him in charge of the army (Not all Cardinals were priests then).
When Paul VI rejected the Ottaviani Intervention and announced on November 19, 1969 that all Catholics have to accept all the changes of the Vatican II Council he became automatically excommunicated and as a result brought us into the Great Apostasy and the End Times. As a result broke the line of perpetuity of the papacy. There is no pope during the end times, only AntiChrists.
No Pope No Church Thesis ~ 6-30-11 Com. St. Paul St. Peter Revised
This is the Dogmatic position of the Sede Vacantist Catholics ~ 4-10-16 2nd Sunday of Easter
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., Continue reading →
By Rev. Anthony Cekada: Abp. Lefebvre made many statements favoring sedevacantism, but SSPX and Salza/Siscoe cover this up in their anti-sede screed, True or False Pope. Fr. Cekada provides a selection of the archbishop’s own words on the topic, and sets them in their historical context.
Here in Italy the summer has reached its height: the sun beats down on the city and on the countryside by day, and by night the elderly sit outside and watch the people passing by.
To the eyes of the Faith, by contrast, the whole of mankind is plunged in the most profound darkness, for both the Church and the World are in the throes of the gravest and most profound crisis in the history of their existence. The crisis is one of Apostasy, not so much in the formal sense of the explicit rejection of the Catholic Faith, but rather in the general sense of the falling away from God. MORE
On March 7, 2015, Pope Francis celebrated Mass in the Roman parish of All Saints. He went there for the fiftieth anniversary of the first Mass celebrated in Italian by Paul VI in that very church.
Commenting on the Gospel of St. John in which Jesus chases the merchants from the Temple, the pope dwelt upon the expression: “you shall not make my Father’s house a house of trade” (John 2:16). For Francis, this refers to “a type of religiosity”: Jesus’ act is an “act of cleansing, of purification”. God “does not appreciate exterior worship performed with material sacrifices and based on personal interests,” he explained. It is “a reference to authentic worship, to a correspondence between liturgy and life; an appeal that applies in every age and even for us today — that correspondence between liturgy and life.” And he insisted: “This is not primarily a doctrine to be understood, or a rite to be performed; naturally it is also this, but in another way, it is essentially different: it is a font of life and of light for our pilgrimage of faith.” Continue reading →
Nine priests outline the grave problems in the Society of St. Pius X in their March 25, 1983 letter to Archbishop Lefebvre and the General Council of the Society. The priests would be expelled the following month.
Your Grace and Rev. Fathers:
It is our understanding that the reason for which the Society of St. Pius X was founded was to promote fidelity to Tradition, by which is mean loyalty to the Church, her doctrine, more teaching, worship, sacraments and discipline. That such an organization was necessary was due to the fact that the reforms introduced by Pope John XXIII set in motion a process that has resulted in radical change, which constitutes a substantial rejection of traditional Catholic doctrine, morality and worship.

PROCLAIMED BY HIS HOLINESS
POPE PAUL VI
ON OCTOBER 28, 1965
1. In our time, when day by day mankind is being drawn closer together, and the ties between different peoples are becoming stronger, the Church examines more closely her relationship to non-Christian religions. In her task of promoting unity and love among men, indeed among nations, she considers above all in this declaration what men have in common and what draws them to fellowship. Continue reading →
On the Remnant Church today. To help understand the facts, I need all to understand church teaching. To begin with Archbishop Thuc of Vietnam did have a papal mandate to consecrate Bishops by Pope Pius IX and cmri comes from his line. Even if it were not so, a papal mandate was not needed from the beginning, as the Apostles consecrated Bishops themselves. Continue reading →
Dear friends of the faith:
One has to understand that Catholics are only obligated to accept the deposit of faith. That is The Pope & Hierarchy, Tradition and the Bible. Private revelations have no jurisdiction on the faithful, even those that are approved. Also there is no such thing as new Divine Revelation. The Bible has everything we need to know from the beginning to the end of the world. Continue reading →
Dear follow Catholics:
This is the teachings of the First Vatican Council and Pope PIus IX 1869-1870
Here is what it says, “1831 [Canon]. If anyone thus speaks, that the Roman Pontiff has only the office of inspection or direction, but not the full and supreme power of jurisdiction over the universal Church, not only in things which pertain to faith and morals, but also in those which pertain to the discipline and government of the Church spread over the whole world; let him be anathema. This is repeated in canon 1827 below. “let him be anathema.” Continue reading →
