Siscoe, Celestine and Sedevacantism

by Rev. Anthony Cekada ANTI-sedevacantist controversialist and SSPX apologist Robert Siscoe thinks he has found a killer argument against the sedevacantist position: Gregory IX promulgated an evil universal disciplinary law in 1234, but remained a true pope! Bingo! This lets Paul VI (who promulgated the New Mass) and JP2 (who promulgated the new Code of […]

True or False Pope: A Dignified Burial

IN FALL of 2016, Messrs. Salza and Siscoe published a 25,000- word response to my video Dead on Arrival, in which they attempted to explain away their earlier and egregious mixup of basic theological terms and to enlist the writings of Louis Cardinal Billot against the sedevacantist position. A Dignified Burial makes short work of […]

Dead on Arrival: True or False Pope

by Rev. Anthony Cekada IN JANUARY 2016, the Society of St. Pius X published a 700-page book touted as the definitive refutation of sedevacantism and the ultimate vindication of the “recognize-and-resist” (R&R) position, John Salza and Robert Siscoe’s True or False Pope. When it first appeared, I thought it would merit a series of videos that […]

Marcel Lefebvre: Sedevacantist

A video by Rev. Anthony Cekada Archbishop Marcel Lefebvre made many statements that support sedevacantism, the theological position held by Catholic traditionalists who believe that the Vatican II popes were not true popes, due to public heresy. Father Anthony Cekada, a priest who was a seminarian in SSPX’s early days and who personally knew the […]

Pope Fictions 1: Nestorian Story Time

A video by Rev. Anthony Cekada The first in a series of shorter videos taking on SSPX’s two anti-sedevacantist musketeers, John Salza and Robert Siscoe, authors of True or False Pope, as SSPX-bankrolled screed against sedevacantism. To support the R&R theory that a heretical pope would not automatically lose his office, Messrs. Salza and Siscoe point to the […]

SSPX and Bitter Fruit: Look Who’s Talking!

Video by Rev. Anthony Cekada AN EXAMINATION of the Society of St. Pius X’s charge that sedevacantism produces “bitter fruit,” which some “disproves” its theological reasoning. Historical perspective: conflict among Catholics where in situations where authority could not be effectively exercised. Conflict withing non-sedevacantist traditionalist movement in the United States. A history of the internal turmoil, division and […]

The Pope Speaks: YOU Decide!

A video by Rev. Anthony Cekada THE YEAR 2016 will be a banner year for traditionalists to argue over the question of the Pope. First, there will be the ongoing antics of Bergoglio, aka Francis, the “People’s Pope.” Second, there will be a lot of back-and-forth over True or False Pope? a 700-page anti-sedevacantist tract […]

The Tribal Myth-Keepers: Salza and Siscoe on Sedevacantism

IN THE FIRST four days of 2016, my video Why Do Traditionalists Fear Sedevacantism? managed to rack up a respectable number of views. It also provoked a testy post by John Salza and Robert Siscoe, authors of True or False Pope? a book urging traditionalists to — wait for it! — fear sedevacantism. They have now […]

Why Do Traditionalists Fear Sedevacantism?

A LENGTHY book by R&R (“recognize and resist”) controversialists John Salza and Robert Siscoe, soon to be published by the Society of St. Pius X, prompts this question. In this video, Father Cekada provides the answer, based on the early history of the traditionalist movement, theological principles and his own observations on the practical considerations that […]

Stuck in a Rut: Anti-Sedevacantism in the Age of Bergoglio

A video by Rev. Anthony Cekada THE ELECTION of Jorge Mario Bergoglio by the March 2013 conclave was a turning point in the ongoing dispute among Catholic traditionalists over the question of the pope: Do we “recognize” the post-Vatican II popes as true popes, but “resist” them? (The “R&R” position held by the Society of St. Pius […]
