His Excellence – Athanasius Schneider 

HEADLINE: On the Validity of the Pontificate of Pope Francis by Athanasius Schneider 

Sedevacantist – vacant chair, empty chair

HEADLINE: The Popes and the Modern Crisis (on Sedevacantism) by Brother Andre Marie 

  • It is speculation, it has never been acted upon. 
  • It has not been enshrine in the doctrine of the Church.
  • There is no authority to declare or consider an elected and generally accepted Pope as an invalid Pope. The constant practice of the Church makes it evident that even in the case of an invalid election this invalid election will be de facto healed through the general acceptance of the new elected by the overwhelming majority of the cardinals and bishops.
  • Even in the case of a heretical pope he will not lose his office automatically and there is no body within the Church to declare him deposed because of heresy. Such actions would come close to a kind of a heresy of conciliarism or episcopalism. The heresy of conciliarism or episcopalism says basically that there is a body within the Church (Ecumenical Council, Synod, College of Cardinals, College of Bishops), which can issue a legally binding judgment over the Pope.
  • The theory of the automatic loss of the papacy due to heresy remains only an opinion, and even St. Robert Bellarmin noticed this and did not present it as a teaching of the Magisterium itself.
  • The perennial papal Magisterium never taught such an option.
  • Every Bishop is a Pontiff – it literally means Bridge Builder.
  • The Pope is the ROMAN Pontiff – 
  • How are they connected?
  • They are connected based upon the limits of Papal Authority.
  • John Paul II – you had moderate progressivist during this time.
  • You can criticize these things today.
  • This isn’t the first Catholic Land Movement, it was tried before and failed.
  • Angelus Press has printed a lot of this stuff – they were all writing and no one was actually farming. 
  • Collections of Integrity Articles – 
  • Sometimes Saints had great ideas that flopped.
