Sedevacantism is not an Option

This is becoming a real problem for the resistance priests. The subject of sedevacantism is openly debated on traditional pro-resistance forums leading many innocent souls into believing that the See of Peter is vacant. This belief is spreading into the resistance movement involving priests and laity. Absorbing the belief, a Catholic's prayer life changes dramatically that excludes praying for the Pope. To accept what is promoted as a private opinion, becomes in secret, an actual fact the moment we stop praying for the Pope. It anticipates God's Will. An innocent soul who secretly stops praying for the Pope, or a priest who refuses to pray for the Pope liturgically whilst offering Mass, is appropriating to himself/herself the authority that God has delegated solely to the Pope. In other words, they are becoming little Popes themselves. God is testing our faith as we await His Will speaking through a future Pope.

One of the greatest evils in our time, as a result of the divided priesthood, is we are left to pray in secret. God has given us liturgical prayer with which to address Him. It is HIS language. How dare we omit, or change one single word either privately or publicly!

It goes without saying, that if we cease to pray for the Pope then we cease to pray for the fulfilment of Our Lady's request to consecrate Russia. Why would Our wonderful Mother bother with us when we insult her son. Translation requested

Sedevacantists often refer to Link (found in the July 1986 issue of the Angelus) to try to prove that the Archbishop's position on sedevacantism changed over time. They caim that his thinking progressed on the matter and that by 1986, he came close to sedevacantism. Here are two quotes of the Archbishop AFTER 1986, which show that he was still against sedevacantism towards the end of his life......

The Validity of Archbishop Lefebvre’s Ordination


************************************************************************************

Open Letter to Confused Catholics


Archbishop Lefebvre:


In the Church there is no law or jurisdiction which can impose on a Christian a diminution of his faith. All the faithful can and should resist whatever interferes with their faith, supported by the catechism of their childhood. If they are faced with an order putting their faith in danger of corruption, there is an overriding duty to disobey.
(Open Letter to Confused Catholics : Chapter 18 : para 9)

Q. 526. What do you mean by the infallibility of the Church?
A. By the infallibility of the Church we mean that the Church can not err when it teaches a doctrine of faith or morals.
Q. 527. What do we mean by a "doctrine of faith or morals"?
A. By a doctrine of faith or morals we mean the revealed teaching that refers to whatever we believe and do in order to be saved.
Q. 529. Since the Church can not err, could it ever be reformed in its teaching of faith or morals?
A. Since the Church can not err, it could never be reformed in its teaching of faith or morals.
Those who say the Church needed reformation in faith or morals accuse Our Lord of falsehood and deception.

These teachings apply to every Catholic from the Pope/sinner, through priest/sinners down to the lowliest pewsitter/sinner There are no exceptions.

NEVER BE INTIMIDATED BY INTELLECTUALS WHO KEEP QUOTING VARIOUS THEOLOGIANS TO PROMOTE ANYTHING CONTRARY TO THE QUOTE ABOVE. OUR WONDERFUL MOTHER THE CHURCH HAS PROVIDED FOR HER LITTLE ONES BY DISTILLING FROM THE CHURCH FATHERS, AND ACCEPTED THEOLOGIANS, THE SIMPLE INSTRUCTION AS COMING STRAIGHT FROM THE MOUTH OF CHRIST!


Pray for us Archbishop LeFebvre. Do not let us be misled by the ways your words and deeds are interpreted to suit the personal opinions of those who scandalise Our Lord's beloved children.

The following is an attempt to clarify OPINIONS held by various Catholics that the See of Peter is vacant. *

What is a dogmatic sedevacantist?
( DS)
A dogmatic sedevacantist clearly and publicly states his/her position i.e. that the See of Peter is now vacant due to the fact that it is occupied by a heretic. He judges as being a “dogma” of the faith, and considers as a condition for one to be Catholic to diligently endeavour to persuade others to his opinion.

What is a private sedevacantist? (PS)

Such a person embraces the private opinion that the See of Peter is vacant but who, nevertheless, publicly asserts his private opinion. He says that he does not judge anyone publicly.

What is a non-dogmatic sedevacantist? (NDS)
Not wishing to take a firm stand on either side he is a fence-sitter. He is one who embraces the private opinion that the See of Peter is vacant, but unlike the PS he expresses publicly his hostility towards those who disagree with him, thus siding with the DS's. He is the most dogmatic of all allocating to himself the right to judge, and publicly judge against those who oppose the unauthorised deposing of the Pope.

Cor Mariae unapologetically upholds the position that the See of Peter cannot be declared vacant unless/until the declaration is made by a person or persons with the authority to do so. We hold neither a public nor a private opinion on the matter.

* One has to address the titles being flung about at random.
