Crisis Series #34 w/ Don Tranquillo: Is Sedevacantism the Answer to the Crisis?

Notes and transcript for this episode available at

Today we’re joined again by Don Tranquillo to discuss one of the more hot-button issues of the entire traditional Catholic movement – sedevacantism, or the idea that the pope is not the pope – or at least, does not have the authority to be the pope. This flows directly from the last episode on obedience, and its limits – but takes it to next step entirely. There are several different categories or theories within the sedevacantist structure. We’ll discuss a couple of the most widespread ideas, but broadly, they all share a single disturbing commonality – that those who hold these ideas will necessarily open the door to the wholesale destruction of the hierarchal Catholic Church.
