The Sedevacantist Logic and the SSPX Resistance

By: Stephen Hand

We all know a revolt from sacred tradition when we see it---and we decry it, calling on Rome to act, as Catholics have a right to expect from true shepherds. It is only over the implications that men differ, as they will in an unprecedented fog. In the interests of fostering an ongoing 'conversation' among traditional Catholics about the crisis in the Church since the Second Vatican Council, I highlight roughly the informative major points of convergence and divergence among traditional Catholics, believing that ultimately it will be only a restored Church which can and will judge between these positions one day. Until then, charity for, and between, us all.


In an attempt to provide a more complete airing of the issues, the above piece by Stephen Hand has been added to the blog. Others, for example Hutton Gibson come to different conclusions about the implications. Interested readers may find further details of Mr. Gibson's views HERE...

What/Where is the Roman Catholic Church?

In light of Traditional Catholic dogma/doctrine, how should the Second Vatican Council be viewed ? Is it consistent with Sacred Scripture, Sacred Tradition and prior Magisterial teaching?

What explains the tremendous amount of "bad fruit" which has been forthcoming since the close of the Council in 1965? “By their fruits you shall know them” (Matt. 7:16)

This site explores these questions and more in an attempt to place the Second Vatican Council in proper perspective.
