Why Sedevacantism?

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. In this interview, he add
resses many common questions and objections, including:

  • All will be fine if we're only loyal to the "Holy Father"
  • If Vatican II is interpreted in light of Tradition, there is no problem
  • It's safer to just "recognize and resist" the Vatican II Popes
  • We can't judge the Pope, but we can resist errors and heresy
  • St. Paul resisted St. Peter, he didn't declare him a non-Pope
  • A bad father is still your father, so a bad Pope is still Pope
  • We will have to wait for a future Pope to decide the sede vacante issue
  • So then why don't you just have a conclave and elect a new Pope?
  • If you can't have a conclave, how will you ever have a true Pope again?
  • What about Fatima? Our Lady said the Holy Father would consecrate Russia!

Be sure to watch this video, because even if you still won't agree, at least you will understand sedevacantism and why more and more people are beginning to embrace it.
