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

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 X, Bp. Williamson, The Remnant, Catholic […]

Dr. de Mattei Prescribes an Anti-Sede Tranquilizer

by Rev. Anthony Cekada A 14th century pope was a “heretic” and remained pope, so Bergoglio must remain pope, too, right? Right?  JORGE BERGOGLIO’s antics are unnerving more and more people in the conservative/traditionalist wing of the post-Vatican II establishment, and it is becoming harder and harder for them to insist that Francis is really […]

Bergoglio’s Got Nothing to Lose…

… so the sedevacantist argument must change. by Rev. Anthony Cekada SINCE JORGE MARIO BERGOGLIO’S election in March 2013, I’ve heard from more and more traditional Catholics who are starting to wonder whether sedevacantism might now be the only coherent way to explain the state of affairs in the post-Vatican II church. As I noted in a post […]

Links to essential reading, updated May 2019 by Rev. Anthony Cekada SINCE THE ELECTION of Jorge Bergoglio (“Pope Francis”) by the March 2013 conclave, more and more Catholics have started to wonder whether the sedevacantist explanation for the state of affairs in the post-Vatican II church might not indeed be the correct one. After all, […]

SGG Young Person’s Field Guide to Potential Trad Spouses

IT ISN’T easy to be young and a traditional Catholic these days. Practicing the faith – and even just getting to Sunday Mass – requires a lot more effort and determination now than it did when I was growing up in the balmy pre-Vatican II era, and Mass was just a short bike ride away. […]

Pro-Sedevacantism Quotes from Abp. Lefebvre

NOTE FROM FR. CEKADA: In discussions on various forums, I’ve noticed that many SSPX supporters can’t bring themselves to believe that Abp. Lefebvre EVER said ANYTHING that favored sedevacantism, implying in bargain that SSPX sede old-timers like myself are are either liars or delusional. Below is an article by John Daly which provides a nice […]

Fr. Cekada Video: Sedevacantism: How to Tell Aunt Helen

IN 1995, I wrote an article for the periodical Sacerdotium about the emotional difficulties Catholic traditionalists and others have with the issue of “sedevacantism” — the theological position that the post-Vatican II popes were not true popes. The article, I noted, was prompted by a cordial correspondence with the later Father Paul Wickens (left). In […]
